Overview

In his gospel, John gives eyewitness details that help us "be there" with Jesus. Now, Michael Card, with his unique blend of artistic craft and scholarly research--including his own translation of the gospel from the original Greek text--introduces us to the apostle and his gospel in a fresh new way. Scholarly insights and imagination make John's stories come to life and help us know in our hearts that his friend Jesus is truly the Son of God. "But these things have been written so you might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name" (John 20:31).

Editorial Reviews

Max Lucado

"What Michael has done with his music, he now does with his pen. What you've loved in his writings--you'll find on these pages. You'll hear the same passion and sense the same skill. And most of all--you'll see the same Savior"
Larry Crabb

"In The Parable of Joy you uniquely meet Christ at the level of intimacy He intends. You will never read John's gospel more richly."
Eugene Peterson

"The gospel of John has a way of bringing out the best in us--evoking reflection and prayer, obedience and belief from depths within us that we hardly knew were there. And it has done it yet again in Michael Card. His lived responsiveness to St. John is marked by winsomeness, lyricism, and joy, inviting us into this sacred text."
