The Gospel of John [NICNT] is a detailed, elegantly written commentary (indicating an increased attention to the literary quality NICNT vols.) on the modern church's most revered gospel. J. Ramsey Michaels gives primary attention to the "Gospel of Belief" motif in its present form rather than to the sources or traditions that many believe lay behind it.
Michaels examines the Gospel's literary character and construction, as well as its theological significance and message for the Christian community in its own time, through the ages, and for today.
Michaels' The Gospel of John [NICNT] is unique in that it marks the culmination of 50 years of classroom teaching on the NT, and seventeen years of writing and research for this volume alone. It is excellence and commitment at a level rarely achieved in biblical exposition. Nevertheless it remains accessible, yet scholarly commentary, and is a "must" have for every pastor, scholar, and student.
