Item description for Encountering John: The Gospel in Historical, Literary, and Theological Perspective (Encountering Biblical Studies) by Andreas J. Kostenberger, Andreas J. Kc6stenberger & Andreas J. Kstenberger...

Surveys the content and theology of the Fourth Gospel. Includes c. sixty photos, maps, and line drawings and an instructor's manual.

Publishers Description
The uniqueness of the Gospel of John is readily apparent. In contrast to the overlapping material in the Synoptic Gospels, John shares only about ten percent of its content with Matthew, Mark, and Luke. John's distinct focus on Jesus' life as the culmination of salvation history makes it "the theological pinnacle of the gospel tradition" and establishes its author, along with the apostle Paul, as one of the early church's foremost theologians.
Not a traditional commentary on the book, this volume, like others in the Encountering Biblical Studies series, is designed especially for classroom use. A lucid writing style and a number of pedagogical enhancements make this a perfect tool for helping students master the content and key interpretive issues of the Gospel of John.
Like the other volumes in this series, the pedagogical usefulness of this work is enhanced by a number of features:
- copious illustrative tables, maps, and photos
- sidebars and excursuses that address difficult passages and important issues
- an outline and objectives at the beginning of each chapter
- study questions and key terms at the conclusion of each chapter
- a comprehensive glossary and annotated bibliography
- instructor's manual available on diskette

Reviews - What do customers think about Encountering John: The Gospel in Historical, Literary, and Theological Perspective (Encountering Biblical Studies)?

Reviewed Book  Mar 16, 2006
The first book received was inadequate. It had blank or missing pages, the replacement book was just fine and in good shape. Apparently a problem with the publishers!
Concise, Readable, and Scholarly Overview of John  Nov 22, 2002
Encountering John is an outstanding college level volume on the fourth Gospel. The book is Evangelical, conservative and scholarly. I found it comprehensive in scope, while concise in content. Kostenberger occasionally presents his personal bias but always supports his views with reasonable arguments. Each chapter includes an outline, objectives, key words, interesting vignettes, and study questions. I would highly recommend the book to the serious student looking for a concise and readable overview of John's Gospel.
Good Intermediate Commentary  Jun 18, 2000
Dr. Kostenberger has done a good job in his commentary on John. It is written at a level that would stretch Bible college students and would be comfortable for most seminary students. He is a very clear writer and he summarizes frequently and effectively to help the reader gain the most from this book. Most of the charts and diagrams are very helpful as well as the study questions. The appendices are exciting reading into some insights he takes into the Gospel.

Dr. Kostenberger takes the generally accepted conservative stance on nearly all controversial issues. He supports Johannine authorship, a seven-sign structure in the Book of Signs, and the general coherency of the text. He views are supported heavily from the biblical data.

This commentary would do well to any student of the New Testament wanting a good intermediate commentary that does not go into the Greek or much syntactical analysis.
