Reviews - What do customers think about Life In Abundance?

A Fitting Tribute to a Great Scholar and Man  May 27, 2007
Tributes to scholars who have died are traditional providing the said scholar made a contribution to his field. Frather Raymond Brown did more than that. He was the outstanding Catholic scholar of the 20th century and a true priest and true man. I was his student in the 80's and during that period although I could never aspire to his height of intellect or scholarship he gently guided me to a deep love of God and what it meant to be a Christian. Life in Abundance is what Fr. Brown had and shared, and this tribute to him reflects not only the high scholarship of those that have followed him but those who loved him. This is the community of the Beloved diciple and not all of them are Christians. Fr. Brown would be pleased.
The Art and Product of Scripture Study  Jul 28, 2005
This work is a compilation of papers delivered at a 2003 conference addressing Johannine theology and dedicated to Raymond E. Brown, S.S., an internationally respected New Testament scholar. On one level, this is a work by scholars for scholars; however, it also has much to offer those interested in learning more about scripture study and, in particular, the place of John's gospel in the New Testament. In Craig R. Koester's chapter on the death of Jesus, for example, we learn that the story of the crucifixion in John has traditionally been studied in combination with the other three gospels, but critical scholarship moves in the opposite direction, looking at the four stories independently. In that light, Koester explains, John stands alone, telling of Jesus' triumph while the Synoptics focus on his suffering. The remainder of the chapter looks at the crucifixion as described by John "as an expression of love in human terms, as a sacrifice for sin, as conflict with evil, and as a revelation of divine glory."
