Brown and R. That makes this book in many ways not just the first to be published, but the one that sets the pace for the rest to follow. He rejects the older view that that drives a wedge between history and theology when reading John. Markus Bockmuehl has recently made a case for the importance of Wirkungsgeschichte a study of a work's "history of effects" on later interpreters in biblical studies, and John's writings have indeed had a profound impact on Christian theology and spirituality that is second to few if any biblical or other works. Rather than attempt to construct a new edifice on top of a structurally unsound foundation, students of John's writings will be wise to eschew false dichotomies, to acknowledge the undeniable faith dimension in biblical scholarship, and to adopt a hermeneutical model that affirms the various component parts of the interpretive process in proper balance and proportion.

His account commences with the Baptist's witness to Jesus John — 8, 15 and the incarnation In one's scholarship, it will be essential to transcend the above-mentioned dichotomies between the spiritual and the historical, and theology and religion, and to consider the possibility that John's gospel is deeply nurturing spiritually precisely because it is grounded in an accurate historical portrayal of what actually took place in and through the life of Jesus Christ. In dealing with these areas Kostenberger's refined biblical-theological skills shine forth brilliantly. Readers will gain an in-depth and holistic grasp of Johannine theology in the larger context of the Bible. They can even be seen stealing bait from one another from time to time.

As Johannine scholarship moves into the future, it should take care not to build uncritically on the dubious legacy of its historical-critical forebears. One particularly telling expression of this approach is the effort by the twentieth-century theologian Rudolf Bultmann to "demythologize" Scripture in order to salvage an existentialist core of the Christian message. Nor does reading John literarily mean one must reject its historical nature and reliability. Andreas Kostenberger has provided yet another outstanding resource for the scholarly and academic community on the writings of the Apostle John. Excerpts are provided by Dial-A-Book Inc.

Kostenberger expertly guides his readers through the potential mire of Johannine scholarship before delving into an exploration of the main theological themes of John's writings minus Revelation.
