Item description for St. John's Gospel: A Bible Study Guide and Commentary for Individuals and Groups by Stephen K. Ray...

As Catholics in ever-growing numbers are taking part in Bible studies, many questions arise. How do I study the Bible? Where do I begin? Is it OK to interpret the Bible for ourselves? What Bible should I use? How can I understand such a deep book as the Gospel of St. John? This book has the answer to these and many other such questions. Stephen Ray takes the difficult and makes it easy; he takes the confusion and makes things clear. It gives a simple start for a beginner while providing the depth and profundity for the scholar. This book is one of a kind. It is the first extensive, easy to use and thoroughly Catholic study guide available. This Bible study provides extensive "text boxes" with detailed information that helps students discover the cultural, religious, historical and other information on the specific passage they are studying. It utilizes quotes for a wide range of scholars, historians and specialists to instruct the student and give valuable insights into the background and meaning of the text. This book can serve as a basic Bible study guide for working through the Gospel of John, helping the student plumb the depths of St. John's marvelous and deeply spiritual Gospel. It is excellent for use by individuals or groups, for families or schools.

Reviews - What do customers think about St. John's Gospel: A Bible Study Guide and Commentary for Individuals and Groups?

A Masterpiece Study on the Gospel according to John  Nov 12, 2006
Very well researched work with numerous cross references including the teachings in the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
Excellent resource for catholics  Feb 13, 2006
I would give it five stars plus if the text from John was included. It is a bit cumbersome to read while on the road or away from home as you can't reference the scripture without having a bible to look at. Even then with a bible it is frustrating.
A deeper look at the Gospel of John  Jul 14, 2003
If you want to really dig deeply into the Gospel of John this book is for you. It has many notes including some from the church fathers, some historical, some theological, word studies and more. My only complaint,and it's a small one, is that the bible verses are not in the book. You have to read your bible then look up the comments, but thats not a big deal. This is a valuable resource for any catholic, and in my opinion probably the best catholic bible study out there. Stephen Ray has really done a great service for the ordinary catholic who wants to know the bible better.
Serious Catholic Study  Jun 30, 2003
Our Parish has used Mr. Ray's guide for two trips through the Gospel according to St. John. It is an incredible resource for groups who have serious interest in Bible Study. (I would expect nothing less of an author than a 5-star rating for his work! This piece happens to actually deserve it.)
Making Progress  Nov 30, 2002
Catholics have trailed far behind Protestants in authoring Bible commentaries, despite their claim to venerate both sacraments and Word. So the appearance of a layman-accessible commentary like this one is a welcome sight. Especially one where it is clear the author puts full credence in the inspiration and authority of the text. Let's hope this is first among many similar volumes.
