Reviews - What do customers think about The Gospel of John: Ignatius Catholic Study Bible, Revised Standard Version?
Top of the list May 22, 2008
For depth of study combined with clarity of explanation, this is the top of the list of commentaries on John. Having read many commentaries on John, I can say without reservation that there is no better commentary (Protestant or Catholic) on the gospel of John than this one. The archeological and historical information is up to date and in enlightening such as in the detailed discussion concerning the chronological difficulties of when Jesus celebrated the Last Supper with his disciples. Rather than avoiding such questions or over-simplifying the question, the authors take those difficult questions head on and satisfy us with deep analysis providing the various options in resolving those questions. All the while, the discussion is within the boundaries of church doctrine and authority while still allowing for freedom of exploration.
Very highly recommended for group study or personal devotions.
Wonderful Insights Mar 11, 2008
AS with all of his contributions to the other three Gospels and The Acts, Scott Hahn has provided invaluable help to both understanding and appreciating the Gospel of John. I loved it.

Includes an introduction to the Study Bible, an introduction and an outline to the Gospel, as well as topical essays such as "When Did Jesus Celebrate the Last Supper?" and study questions.
Great supplement for Bible Study Group Jan 5, 2007
I am right now using this commentary as I lead a group with a half hour video from an EWTN and then we use the book to answer the review questions which the class does for homework. Easy for beginner students and learned enough to provoke my thoughts as well.
