Reviews - What do customers think about John- Gospel Commentary (Moody Gospel Commentary)?
A wonderful and practical blend of virtues Mar 2, 2007
Laney is not the most thorough exegetical commentary, nor is it the clearest survey, nor is it the most polished presentation of applications for homiletical purposes. However, there really isn't another work out there with such a fine mix of good qualities. If I had to recommend just one volume on John, this would be it. I have rated other John commentaries as highly, but they are more specialized - this is John for just about everybody.
good balance of technical information and spiritual insight Jun 20, 2000
I like the format of this commentary very much. It seems to have just the right balance of technical information and spiritual insight. While it comments on each and every verse, it is not written for heavy-duty scholars. Written in a easy-to-read style, it clues you into the history and culture that were unique to each situation, and the thought process that was taking place in the minds of the participants in the accounts. It gives you a lot of information that you will simply not get from the gospel account alone, but that is essential to arrive a more informed understanding of the text.
One of the main premises of this commentary is the notion that there is progression of belief. The author does a good job in demonstrating this while at the same time maintaining the continuity of interpretation and focus on each passage. The book also provides a detailed outline of each chapter and homiletical suggestions to aid those who teach or preach. The author is also conscious to convey practical application so as not to let the book become just an intellectual exercise. This is a good reference for the layman who may need just a little bit more technical information than a strictly inspirational commentary will give him, but who also does not need the frustration of trying to decipher the exegetical tangents of some theological giant.
