Reviews - What do customers think about Gospel of John, The: Peace in Storm (John 13-17) (Expositional Commentary)?
Just okay Dec 27, 2002
There are good discussions that will stimulate meditational reflection but there isn't the indept exposure that I expected. Analyse the word, give us a picture of the environment then and dig deep into the word. There is a lot of Boice opinion and a feel too much social discourse. I discovered later that the book is a collection of radio sermons, that explains it.
Do not misunderstand me, Boice's work is good, but it isn't exactly what I was looking for. It didn't cause me to raise my eyebrow cos of some academic or historical or language insight.
