Item description for Walking in the Truth: Perseverers and Deserters : The First, Second, and Third Letters of John (New Testament in Context) by Gerard S. Sloyan...
Overview A CONCISE COMMENTARY ON THE THREE LETTERS FROM ST. JOHN. FOR THE SCHOLAR; FROM A BACKGROUND OF BIBLICAL CRITICISM.
Publishers Description This volume in the New Testament in Context (NTC) commentary series is a concise treasure-trove of information about two New Testament letters (2 and 3 John) and a treatise or sermon (1 John). Issues of authorship and province are considered, and related commentaries by Bultmann, Schnackenberg, and Brown are engaged. In contract to the infinite detail of these latter commentaries, Gerard Sloyan s work stands as a paragon of clarity, insight, and access to the meaning of the Johannine letters. The overall effect provides the reader with perspective on the kinds of issues christological, ethical, organizational, and theological that were troubling and dividing the church in the second century. Gerard S. Sloyan is a priest of the Diocese of Trenton (NJ) and Professor Emeritus of Religion at Temple University. He is currently a visiting professor in the School of Religious Studies at the Catholic University of America. His most recent book is The Crucifixion of Jesus: History, Myth, Faith.
