About-

The Courageous Gospel is intended for use alongside a commentary (Ashton, Brown, Bultmann, Barrett, other) in a class introducing the Fourth Gospel. The book has four parts:

- A succinct summary of key matters of introduction;

- A collection of sermons on the Gospel's core chapters, with reflective reminiscence and remembrance of what Raymond Brown said in lecture about the Gospel thirty years ago;

- A series of background lectures that attempt, on the one hand, to honor the key insights of the current opinion communis (that Jewish apocalyptic explains John) and, on the other hand, to open the door to further insights from an older perspective needed for a full appreciation of John (that the Hellenistic Gnostic background explains John);


- A set of pedagogical appendices, employable in the classroom, to aid discussion.

Together these components attempt to provide the necessary second book for an introduction to the Fourth Gospel, engaging the commentaries with the hermeneutical, homiletical, exegetical, and pastoral implications of a first-level study of John.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Here is the work of an exceptional preacher and teacher who weaves together hard-won insights from years of study and writing. The sermons are a treasure and the lectures are filled with careful scholarship. . . . Hill leads us to a vista that sees beyond previous limited categories of analysis. He joins the earliest witnesses in suggesting this gospel is given so we might believe and have life."
--Philip A. Amerson, President, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary

"In a series of striking sermons Hill models the hermeneutics of preaching from John for our situation. The sermons alone are worth the price of the book. It is an extraordinary resource for those who want to preach on John, listen to sermons on John, read the text, or teach students about John."
--Robert Cummings Neville, Professor of Philosophy, Religion, and Theology, Boston University
