Reviews - What do customers think about The Gospel according to John (Pillar New Testament Commentary)?
A Sound, Reliable and Illuminating Commentary on John May 14, 2008
I keep this book on my desk right beside Craig S. Keener's commentaries. Carson writes clearly and succinctly and touches on almost every mystery of the Gospel that concerns me. I think he is completely correct in his criticism of the skeptics. The book is obviously shaped by immense faith and displays great attention to current scholarship and to the details of the text of John. The book also contains a marvelous and forceful summary of the arguments for and against the belief that the Apostle John bar Zebedee wrote the gospel. This is a decisive and brave commentary. Also recommended are all D.A. Carson's other books, including Divine Sovereignty & Human Responsibility. This scholar's output is enormous. It will take me years to catch up with what he has written, and I doubt I'll ever catch up with all of it. I admire him greatly, and recommend him wholeheartedly. --- Addendum added May 16, 2008 as I continue to read this book: There is something commonsensical and firm about the way this author presents his points; he dispatches the objections or contrary theory of others with conviction and an economy of language. Again and again, he appeals simply and unobtrusively to sound judgment as to points over which people argue, and it is refreshing. --- Some scholars today are so hampered by earlier skeptical objections, speculations, and disputes that it is difficult to get through their books. One gets the feeling sometimes that some authors are writing for one another. ---- Not so with D.A. Carson. His writing serves the text and the mainstream reader as well as the scholar. ---- Yet he is ever the Christian (charitable) writer. ---- I sense no snideness or unkindness, but simply a great deal of well earned self confidence, and a straightforward appeal to sound logic. Some readers may find this commentary particularly accessible because of all this. The writing is brisk.
The Gospel According to John, by D.A. Carson Apr 30, 2008
I am thrilled to add this commentary to my library. D.A. Carson is scholarly, but not so complicated that an interested lay bible student cannot follow his writing.
A Quality Work Apr 6, 2008
Carson's Gospel According to John is a quality work by an evangelical scholar. His commentary is well acquainted with scholars like Barrett, Raymond, Dodd, Westcott, and Morris. If you prefer indepth study on critical passage in John, you would enjoy his work. It is a good commentary for serious Bible students and scholars.
Worthwhile purchase Mar 9, 2007
Carson's commentary on the Gospel of John is thorough and a great aid. He addresses opposing views on certain topics and gives great insight on difficult passages. While academic, this commentary can be of tremendous use to anyone who is either leading a Bible study on John or wants to have some help during personal devotions.
Required Commentary for Evangelicals Feb 10, 2007
Carson's volume is an absolutely outstanding commentary that brings together the rigorous exegetical work of one of evangelicalism's most trusted and well-thought teachers with a pastoral heart (and Carson's is big). The commentary is pitched at the level of the reasonably well-educated clergyman, but does not require proficiency in the biblical languages, and could certainly be useful to an advanced lay Bible student.
