Editorial Reviews

R. Kent Hughes
Because Kathleen Nielsen understands the structure and theology of John’s Gospel as it relates to its mastering theme, and because she ( a poet herself) is sensitive to John’s use of metaphor and nuanced expression, and because she is committed to letting the text speak for itself – Dr. Nielsen provides a sure-footed guide through the fourth Gospel. Also, as an experienced Bible study teacher her work on John is easy to follow and full of engaging application. That You May Believe will be of rich benefit for all who for all who want to learn and live the Gospel of John.
Jane Patete
Our office frequently is asked for solid, Word-based studies for women. And we are delighted to have the Living Word series to recommend. Kathleen’s love for and high view of Scripture result in careful treatment of the text that equips believers to be diligent Bible students.

Dr. Nielson’s expertise in literature helps us unwrap the rich imagery of John’s Gospel. The probing questions that dig below the surface – more that merely, “What do you think?” – challenge God’s people to grow in grace and encounter the Word that became flesh and dwelt among us.
