Reviews - What do customers think about The Gospel According to St. John: An Introduction With Commentary and Notes on the Greek Text?

The Gospel According to St John  Nov 21, 2007
The book is an essential reference for the Gospel of John...the book requires careful attention to detail..but the reward is great for those who stick with it. Highly recommended for the serious student.
 
Excellent exegesis resource!  Sep 8, 2007
The 145-page introduction is concise and clear, and provides a brief, but comprehensive analysis of the theology of the gospel. I was especially drawn by Barrett's eschatological discussion. The commentary and notes on the Greek text are particularly useful in exegeting the material.
 
Barrett's the Bomb  Apr 4, 2007
There is no better solid, well rounded, sensitively interpreted commentary on John. Barrett is the master of British Johannine readers of the gospel of John, and his remarks on the Greek text quite helpful. Barrett literally takes apart the gospel of John in the Greek text letter by letter and arrives at an outstanding reading of the evangelist. Though there are many fine works on John's gospel, this is the baseline by which all others should be judged. Granted, this is not a pretty commentary, one will have to roll up one's sleeves and do some work to understand what Barrett is driving at in his writing--but for the interested student who is willing to spend the time at Barrett's feet, their work will pay off huge dividends.
 
Good job, but no masterpiece  Jan 9, 2004
Barrett does a decent job on the greek text, yet I don't get the feeling of intellectual depth or challenging perspective on different sections. John 3:1-12, 1:1-10 didn't give me much insight or cause me to ponder. John 17 just didn't have it for me.

I stress for me, 'cos it appears many people have enjoyed this book. My advice is that you check it out before buying, I certainly won't call this a masterpiece.
