In many commentaries about 1, 2, 3 John the main focus is 1 John, with little or no attention paid to 2 and 3 John. Sadly this is the case with this commentary, yet the limited space spend on 2 and 3 John does not negate the plethora of attention paid to 1st John. Furthermore while this commentary is a lightweight commentary, weighing in at only 230 pages, Campbell’s attention to detail in 1 John makes this commentary a worthwhile read for both the pastor and the laymen, with a slight bent to the laymen.
A pastor will find that Campbell’s practical insights extremely helpful in giving application from the text to his congregants, while the laymen will find this commentaries easy to use formant and the non-technical format an easy read. It is truly the best of both worlds.
When looking specifically a this commentary Campbell spends about 20 pages on introductory matters. While this seems small, when compared with the relatively small size of the commentary itself the introductory comments take up over 20% of the work, which is larger than average. When investigating maters specifically with the text of scripture, Campbell takes an interesting approach. When exegeting on 1st John he deals mostly with the imagery that the apostle whom Jesus loved wrote in. Yet he does not fall into the trap of many commentators in allegorizing the imagery.
In the end I would recommend this commentary as in introduction to pastors and Sunday school teachers, that help tremendously with the laymen a pastor will want another commentary to pair with this wonderfully practical commentary on scripture.
