Item description for The Gospel of John and Christian Theology by Richard Bauckham & Carl Mosser...
Overview First presented as papers at the first St. Andrews Conference on Scripture and Theology, the essays collected in this volume examine the Gospel of John from both a biblical studies and a systematic theology point of view. The aim of the conference was to bring leading biblical scholars and systematic theologians together in conversation, bridging a growing gap between the two disciplines within the last few decades. The essays found here consider John's gospel from many angles, addressing a number of key issues that arise during a theological discussion of this text - John's dualism in our pluralist context, historicity and testimony, the treatment of Judaism, Christology, and beyond. Providing fascinating conversation about a unique gospel, this book also starts a fruitful and hopeful dialogue between two disciplines that have drifted apart, but flourish best when brought together.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Gospel of John and Christian Theology?
Comments by Michael Calum Jacques author of '1st Century Radical'. Nov 17, 2008
This considerable volume features a collection of essays on a myriad of topics ranging from historical assessment of the Fourth Gospel through to high-octane theological questions upon good and evil. The inclusions are really eclectic and there is herein a veritable feast for Johannine aficionados! It is edited by the prolific Richard Bauckham and Carl Mosser.
The range of contributors is, similarly, considerable and of varying pedigrees, with a range of younger scholars finding voice as well as those of a more established (e.g. Martin Hengel, Rowan Williams and Richard Bauckham himself) and, one might say, in certain cases, a slightly more conservative disposition.
It is hard to see how most scholars of the Fourth Gospel are going to show an interest in most of the topics addressed through these 390 odd pages, but there are those - and the reader may either be one or know one - who seem to display a quite insatiable appetite for all things Johannine. That being said, no institutional theological library should be without this considerable resource as it is bound to prove to be a good 'first port of call' for essays and divers others inquiries into the Fourth Gospel for years to come.

A Library Must Jun 9, 2008
This book is a must for any student of John's Gospel. The articles cover the pertinent issues surrounding the Fourth Gospel and are written in a readable but thorough fashion by today's top scholars. Like any good resource,it saved me time and energy in trying to wrap my mind around John's deep waters; that is, if that is fully possible.
