Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'The overall impression of this collection is of a remarkably coherent and well-balanced set of essays that reinforce each other helpfully.[...]In sum, Frank Moloney here offers readers a book that is faithful to his own interpretive stance and context, while at the same time being faithful to the literary and socioreligious contexts of the Johannine text. Johannine interpreters are helped by this collection, and Patrick Alexander and Alan Culpepper are to be commended for including this fine book within the Biblical Interpretation Series.'
Francis J. Moloney, Review of Biblical Literature, 2006
