Item description for The Gospel According to John, XIII-XXI (The Anchor Yale Bible Commentaries) by Raymond E. Brown...

This volume of the Anchor Bible series concludes Raymond E. Brown's commentary on the book of John. Along with the author's translation, the notes and comments deal with major issues surrounding the writings of John - authorship, composition, date, and its relationship to the other Gospels. The material is understandable for interested laypeople even though the level of scholarship is quite high. Raymond Brown taught at Union Theological Seminary in New York City and held over 20 honorary doctorates from Catholic and Protestant universities.

Publishers Description

Reviews - What do customers think about The Gospel According to John, XIII-XXI (The Anchor Yale Bible Commentaries)?

Brown's Gospel primarily for scholars  Feb 25, 2008
Raymond E. Brown is without doubt the best theologian of his time. He has written excellent work which will be read and studied decades if not centuries later. The Gospel Acc. to John XIII-XXI, I am not too proud to admit, went over my head. More than an analysis on the Gospel acc. to John, this is a review of scholarly ideas in modern theology. For seminarians or those who have done extensive study of biblical scholarship, there should not be a problem. For the rest of us, it would be better to go with one of Brown's introductory works. It did not help matters that I assumed this was a one volume work, at over 1100 pages. This is merely the second half of the volume. The first concerns what Brown calls the "Book of Signs," or the first half of John, prior to the betrayal of Christ. This volume discusses the "Book of Glory," which begins at the last supper and ends at the resurrection. I would challenge smart, intermediate-level bible students to attempt this work, but be sure to start with v. 29 rather than 29A, like I did. And please ignore my rating as I did not finish the book and only gave three stars because this site makes forces every review to have a rating.
Kudos for Brown.  Jul 15, 2004
Kudos for Brown. This is an outstanding addition to your theological library. Brown addresses the scholarly issues and at the same time, has superb insight to the text that preaches. No, it is not the easiest to read and use, but the best seldom are.
No one said it would be easy  Mar 23, 2003
We used R.A. Brown's Introduction to the New Testament in our seminary intro class and I've never found him the easiest to read, but I really like his commentary on John's gospel... and on the epistles. For "ugo" who says he's looking for more of an exegetical approach, I would suggest C.K. Barrett's commentary.
We didn't click  Dec 27, 2002
I have searched for months for a good commentary on the Gospel of John and it looks like the search continues. I got it based on the reviews I have seen on the book from readers. I guess its different strokes for different folks. I am more of a greek and indepth detials on new testament words. My type of commentary is the classic on Jude&Peter by Bauckham. I didn't get that type of exegesis from Brown.
This is a wonderful exegesis of John's Gospel  Aug 30, 1999
Why don't you offer both volumes? I notice that your competition offers the other volume. Another more recent study of John's Gospel is "The Good Wine" by Bernard Barnhart. I highly recommend it also.
