Publishers Description The Fourth Gospel is an unusual resource for those in the pew, the pulpit, or for the pastoral student. The Reverend Professor Cullen I K Story has skillfully provided a new synthesis of insights from the church fathers, novelists, poets, and contemporary theologians for all who want a deeper understanding of John's message. Story's solid middle of the road approach makes the book of John accessible as a committed Christian without limiting him to any one modern trend.
Why another commentary on John's gospel? Because it speaks to both clergy and lay people today as a living narrative, reminding the reader of the themes of the love that triumphs over sin and death and the call to service in the world. The Fourth Gospel has been the object of serious investigation since the end of the first century A.D., the last of the four gospels which the Christian community received as the foundation of faith.
To enhance the reader's understanding of John's language and symbolism, Story begins with the original Greek and then proceeds to illuminate the Gospel's rich theological concepts: "the bread of life, rivers of living water, the resurrection and the life, one flock, one shepherd, etc..." Story's credibility as a scholar and Ms traditional yet fresh approach to the gospel of John make his commentary one which belongs in the library of students of scripture, whether they are in a seminary, a parish or an office.
