About-

"What are you looking for?" These are Jesus's first words in John's Gospel, and he asks us the same question when we decide to follow him. We read John's Gospel because it helps us get closer to Jesus. We're like the first disciples, who answer his question with their own, "Master, where can we find you?" Only near the end of John's story do we learn the answer: Jesus lives in the hearts of all who love him.
Believing is Seeing guides readers to believe more deeply in Jesus of Nazareth as the human face of God, seen through the eyes of his beloved disciple. It beckons us to bring to his gospel our soul-searching questions. Do Jesus's words stake a claim on my life? Does John's gospel test me intellectually, spiritually, or morally? Does John's portrait of Jesus make me see him a new way, pray differently, even live differently? Believing in Jesus, the Son of God, shapes how we perceive our own identity, the world around us, the nature of truth, and our relationship with God. To believe is to see with love's eyes.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Bruce McNab has given us a quite wonderful journey into a marvelous gospel. Bruce has taken some of the best scholarship on the Fourth Gospel and assimilated, reframed, and delivered it as only an experienced, master preacher can. He has taken his love of John's gospel and, in this rich and rewarding book, helps us to fall in love, to believe in order that we might receive a fresh vision of the Word made flesh and, in seeing, respond."
--Will Willimon, United Methodist Bishop, retired, and Professor of the Practice of Christian Ministry, Duke Divinity School; Author of How Odd of God: Chosen for the Curious Vocation of Preaching

"In Believing Is Seeing, Bruce brings out the compelling beauty and power of the Gospel of John with grounded scholarship, felicitous insights, and the kind of writing that actually kindles a deeper desire to know and love Christ. It's both a fruitful read and a moving one, whether you're the new believer (what delights ahead!) or you think you've mastered John's Gospel (you haven't!)."  
--Kathleen Mulhern, Executive Editor of Patheos.com; Adjunct Professor of Christian Formation and Soul Care, Denver Seminary
