Overview


Written That You May Believe has quickly become a standard text for the feminist-informed study of the Gospel of John. Scholars have hailed its publication and dedicated a session at the American Academy of Religion to discuss its message. Lay readers have welcomed it as a companion in opening up the meaning of the Fourth Gospel, and small groups have begun using it as a guide in their devotional reading. This revised edition, enriched with new chapters from Sandra Schneiders and a study guide prepared by John C. Wronski offers new ways to nourish faith through the rich symbolism of the Gospel of John and an invitation to "dwell in" the liberating truth of Jesus.
