Item description for The Epistles of John (The Anchor Yale Bible Commentaries) by Raymond E. Brown...

Overview
The Anchor Bible is known for its scholarly and critical approach to the scriptures. This volume on the Johannine Epistles is written by the late scholar Raymond Brown. In the introduction Brown discusses authorship, structure and sources for the book. He also discusses the important issues of context and community, areas that are still being studied in regard to Johannine writings. Brown then goes into a section by section study of the book, discussing the theology and linguistics in regards to what he sees as the possible setting. An excellent work for any scholar interested in the Epistles of John.

Publishers Description
With this study--companion to the masterful two-volume "The Gospel According to John--"Raymond E. Brown completed his trilogy on the Johannine corpus. Meticulous in detail, exhaustive in analysis, persuasive in argument, it examines controversies that have long troubled both biblical scholars and lay readers. Questions of authorship, composition, and dating, as well as the debate over source theories, are discussed at length; but these are kept subordinate to the overall question of meaning.
What give this commentary special interest and excitement is the bold, imaginative reconstruction of the setting of the Johannine work--in particular of the "opposition figures," who are only dimly sketched in the Epistles--so that we see clearly that the author is writing to his flock both about the dangers and difficulties confronting them, and about the eternal life that is theirs by the gift of God. In this way, the Epistles of John become intelligible as broadsides in a critical engagement between the forces of light and darkness.
In addition to his superb textual analysis of the letters, Raymond Brown has brought to life the community in which these works were formed and shaped. We are forcefully reminded that the Gospel and the Epistles were addressed to very real people living in the first century a.d., people with religious problems not unlike our own. In all respects, "The Epistles of John "stands out as a model of biblical scholarship and study.
