This outstanding commentary is easy to read, informative, and intended for the general reader interested in serious Bible study. “Exactly the sort of work [written] for ordinary Christians who want to know their Bible better,” said D.A. Carson.

At a Glance

By: F.F. Bruce

F.F. Bruce sets passages from John in their historical and cultural context, compares them with the other three Gospel accounts, and opens the meaning of the verses. The book has won such praises as "scholarly, concise, and practical"; "the best overall commentary on the Gospel of John"; and "clear-headed and consistently informative." Drawing on thirty years of research, Bruce introduces his commentary with discussions of the Gospel's authorship, its significance for the early church, and its message. He touches only lightly on textual, linguistic, and other critical questions. "The chief aim," of the commentary, Bruce says, "has been to communicate what I myself have learned of the Evangelist's meaning and message." John wrote his Gospel so "that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that, believing, you may have life in his name." The translation used is Bruce's own.
