Reviews - What do customers think about John (Shepherd's Notes)?
Overwhelming Oct 24, 2008
This study of the Book of John would fit in a detailed college class, not a Sunday School class to explore who Jesus is. This study is too comprehensive and complicated and requires much homework. Definitely neither inviting nor user friendly. However, the introduction is well-written and points out that it is possible to select questions and focus on particular issues, but the mass of material and options are a turn off. Having the actual scripture passage printed in the book would have been very helpful, but scripture isn't included.
John's Gospel - Shepherd's Notes Sep 3, 2008
Excellent for my use in preparing John's Gospel material in order to teach. Highly recommend this series for anyone planning to teach the Bible.
Explores topics and asks questions to bring the text alive Mar 17, 2003
I use this book in a Bible study through a Calvary Chapel. This book is really great. The questions provoke you to dig deeper into the text than you normally would. There are explanation portions that give you historical context, customs, grammer, and the like, all to help explain what a passage means. In addition to helping you get "Bible smart", the book also provokes questions that really make you reflect and search your heart to draw you closer to Jesus.
Great Study Guide! Jan 16, 2001
Of all the study guides I have used, this one is the most comprehensive. It finds the Greek and Hebrew meanings for you, it does the research, it breaks up the book of John in uderstandable and flowing sections. I recommend this along with any of the Shepherd's Notes guides through the Bible.
Great for a Bible Study Nov 7, 2000
My bible study is currently working their way through this amazing little book. I am already in awe of the impact it has had - the lessons learned, the in depth studies, the conversations started. I would definitely recommend this study of the book of John because it delves deep into the book, it asks pertinent and thought provoking questions, it brings John to a level where it personally effects your life and your actions. I hope to use other books in this series in order to better understand and look with clarity and purpose at the Bible. If you are looking for a guide to the book of John, this is it!
