Item description for Written That You May Believe: Encountering Jesus in the Fourth Gospel by Sandra S. Schneiders...

Overview
Written That You May Believe has quickly become a standard text for the feminist-informed study of the Gospel of John. Scholars have hailed its publication and dedicated a session at the American Academy of Religion to discuss its message. Lay readers have welcomed it as a companion in opening up the meaning of the Fourth Gospel, and small groups have begun using it as a guide in their devotional reading. This revised edition, enriched with new chapters from Sandra Schneiders and a study guide prepared by John C. Wronski offers new ways to nourish faith through the rich symbolism of the Gospel of John and an invitation to "dwell in" the liberating truth of Jesus.

Reviews - What do customers think about Written That You May Believe: Encountering Jesus in the Fourth Gospel?

Excellent Study of the Gospel of John  Apr 10, 2008
This is an excellent book for anyone, lay or ordained, who seeks a deeper understanding of the Gospel of John. Dr. Schneider's insight from a feminist point of view gives one fresh perspective from which to view this scripture. I highly recommend this book.
 
Groundbreaking Scripture commentary  Jul 19, 2001
Sandra Schneiders is a dynamic teacher as well as being a gifted Biblical theologian and writer. Her refreshing commentary on the Gospel of John helps us see what very few male theologians have been able or willing to see. Her insights are backed up by splendid research and intelligent thought.Her exploration of the Samaritan Woman, for example , in the 4th chapter of John allow us to peer deeply into the real meaning of the text. This is not about Jesus' encounter with one woman. It is about the Johannine community whose members were struggling with their life situation, the tensions over roles for women and men , the meaning of authority in the new dispensation which Jesus has begun. Anyone seriously interested in Scripture should read this fascinating book.
 
Eisegesis  Oct 2, 2000
Sister Schneiders shows little interest in the text of the Gospel of Saint John. This is just a pretext to do a predictable feminist trashing of the Catholic Church's traditional interpretation of these texts. Sister looks at the Gospel and ---surprise!--- Jesus turns out to be an ecofeminist of the first order.

Not convincing, but sadly typical of the decline of Scriptural fellowship.

 
Written that you may believe  Jul 10, 2000
The promise of the subtitle of this interpretation of the Gospel according to John speaks eloquently to what Sandra Schneiders has brought to life in this well researched theological work. As she has noted in the text, one does not simply read the fourth gospel for it is in interacting with it that Jesus becomes real. For me the chief benefit of immersing the self in Sandra's reflection and research has been a deepened experience of the Risen Christ. I have encountered herein a Jesus who is truly the symbol of the God I only begin to know.
