Overview

In The Gospel of John Set Free, Father George Smiga has written a must-read book for all preachers that alerts them to the anti-Jewish sentiment so commonly-and dangerously-misread into the Gospel of John as it appears in the Roman Catholic Lectionary. Excerpts from the Lectionary are followed by Fr. Smiga's explication of the text and context-and where the preacher needs to step carefully.

Rabbi Leon Klenicki and Father Dennis McManus collaborated in providing valuable Rabbinic comments and historical notes to compliment Fr. Smiga's text. For easy reference, these are keyed to relevant verse numbers in John's gospel. The result is a resource that clarifies the fourth gospel for both the preacher and the listener alike.
