Item description for Johannine Faith and Liberating Community by David Rensberger...

Overview
Building on recent developments in biblical studies, David Rensberger explores new avenues of interpretation of the Fourth Gospel made possible by the rediscovery of its social and historical settings. He looks to the first generation of readers and considers the range of meanings the Gospel might have held for them. He sees that behind the "spiritual" there is the possibility of social and even political interpretations. He discusses the relation of John's Gospel to liberation theology and to contemporary questions on the role of the church in the world.

Reviews - What do customers think about Johannine Faith and Liberating Community?

Great title lacking passion  Sep 22, 2005
Rensberger's book lifts up important connections between liberation theology and the fourth gospel. His writing, however, lacks passion and fails to get to the heart of the issue until the end of the book. Verbosity keeps the reader from easily discerning his points. Still, there are interesting ideas worth pursuing here.
