Publishers Description

In many respects John remains the most beloved of all Gospels. In this careful study for laity, Frances Taylor Gench provides an opportunity for Christians to immerse themselves in this complex Gospel and become better acquainted with its intriguing and distinctive vision. Examining thirteen central texts (including the wedding at Cana, the woman of Samaria, the "I Am" passages, the woman accused of adultery, the raising of Lazarus, and the resurrection scenes), Gench focuses on each text's key features, including literary design, historical origins, and theological insights. Drawing on questions and insights raised by contemporary biblical scholars, Gench helps her readers see these texts anew. She explores the ethical challenges that these texts pose and discusses how this perplexing Gospel can inform Christian life and faith and the practice of daily ministry. Each chapter concludes with thoughtful and engaging study questions for individual or group use.

Reviews - What do customers think about Encounters with Jesus: Studies in the Gospel of John?

Encounters with Jesus  Jun 18, 2009
I have really enjoyed this book, particularly the points of view the author brings forth. The author has helped me deepen my understanding of John's Gospel along with John's interpretative of the signficance of Jesus. I am a elder in our church and I have used it to help with sermons for a prison ministry with which I am involved. I highly recommend this book.
 
Not for the Bible student  Dec 2, 2007
This book provides ample resource for those involved in preaching and teaching the LITERAL interpretation of the book of John. The author slices and dices 13 passages to inspire the reader or teacher. (A wonderful book for those who hold up the John 3:16 signs at football games.)

Unfortunately, there is absolutely no consideration given to higher criticism so a serious biblical student finds nothing of value here.
