""Here is a beautifully evocative spiritual reading of the Gospel of John. While resting on sound scholarship, this is kept in the background inviting the reader to engage directly with the Gospel text sensitively and intelligently. Modeling the spirituality of the Gospel the author writes self-consciously and in dialogue with a reader, offering the challenge to enter into the text, then to allow the text to transform the reader's life. Here is scholarship at its best, as it communicates its depth in a manner accessible to all. Pazdan's book is a valuable resource for one's reflective spiritual reading, or for a small group gathering to discuss and pray with the Fourth Gospel. As the Gospel it is based upon, this book invites one into life in the household of God.""
--Mary L. Coloe. Australian Catholic University.
""[This is] a treatment of Johannine theology that reflects a genuine pastoral sensitivity. Mary Pazdan articulates well the communal dimension of a gospel that all too often seen as only concerned with the believer's attitude toward Jesus, the Father, and the Spirit. This book will be a valuable resource for individuals wanting to use the gospel of John in a way to genuinely deepen their relationship with both God and their neighbor. Pazdan has the ability to explain Johannine theology in a way that is faithful to the text and yet eminently intelligible to the general reader.""
--Urban C. von Wahlde, Loyola University Chicago
""This book invites us to journey as friends into the heart of John's Gospel. We travel with both classical and contemporary companions like Thomas Aquinas, Catherine of Siena, and Henri Nouwen. Mary Margaret's scholarship provides information, and the insightful questions are informative.
""I look forward to using this with Stillpoint's Scripture Seminars.""
