Item description for John: Storyteller, Interpreter, Evangelist by Warren Carter...
Overview Ideal for students who are beginning New Testament studies or taking an elective after doing an introductory course, John: Storyteller, Interpreter, Evangelist will also benefit clergy seeking a fresh way of conveying the Johannine message to a twenty-first century audience. Carter's study is also useful for Bible study groups who prefer engaging topics in depth. In addition to providing familiarity with central matters related to the gospel, it helpfully engages the two dominant methods used in current interpretive work, namely, narrative and historical approaches to John. Besides offering helpful synthesis of existing material, the book introduces readers to a neglected element in Johannine interpretation: the gospel's negotiation of the Roman imperial world.

Interesting and useful for study Nov 15, 2006
The book was easy to read with intersting suggestions for discussions, study and reflection. There is some repetition of material throughout the book but that could make it useful for group study as well as individual work.
