About-

The Gospel of John has long been a favorite of the church. But the distinctive voice of John in the quartet of evangelists has beckoned modern scholars to a closer investigation. Although a better profile of the Fourth Gospel's setting, structure, and theology has been gained, a dossier of suspicions and allegations regarding the Gospel's historical lineage and the veracity of its Jesus traditions has attached its reputation.

In this fully revised edition of his well-established study of John, Stephen Smalley reviews and evaluates all the significant issues and critical problems of recent Johannine interpretation. He argues for the unique integrity of this Gospel, a work firmly rooted in the historical Jesus and yet drawing out the deeper significance of Jesus' words and deeds.
