Reading John concentrates on the literary and theological distinctives of the Fourth Gospel and the Johannine Epistles. New Testament scholar Charles Talbert's unique commentary considers the entire scope of these works attributed to John, their literary settings and particularities, and their continuing theological importance to the Christian story. Thoughtful and engaging, Reading John is an essential book for students and ministers studying the New Testament and the Johannine writings.
Charles H. Talbert is Distinguished Professor of Religion at Baylor University in Waco, Texas. He is the Reading the New Testament commentary series editor and the author of several of the editions in the series, including Reading Luke, Reading Acts, and Reading Corinthians.
