Editorial Reviews

Christian Century
A rather orthodox, pastorally lively reading of the Gospel. Newbigin's writing is unburdened and accessible to people who do not read much technical theology.
Living Church
Here is a person putting together his experience and his scholarship in the church's service; the result is exposition, that middle ground between exegesis and proclamation that is indispensable to understanding and, hence, to preaching.
Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society
For those who want a clear, simple, and conservative explanation of the theological significance of the Fourth Gospel, Newbigin has provided a very useful volume.... It is lucidly written, well informed, articulately reasoned, and practical for modern Christians.
Christian Scholar's Review
An achievement of first rank.... Newbigin at his best. His commentary is a treasure.
