Editorial Reviews

D.Moody Smith
Among the strengths of this commentary are the many valuable excurses, which cover a wide range of relevant topics, for example: the docetic false teachers in 1 John (pp. 69-76); "love" ()agap/h, pp. 144-48); the Comma Johanneum of 1 John 5:7-8 (pp. 188-91); second repentance (pp. 203-8); the Antichrist (pp. 236-41); and early Catholicism (pp. 244-49). There are also extremely useful bibliographies and bibliographical footnotes.
