Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This pioneering commentary embraces the full scope and themes raised in John's Gospel, offering an engaging and perceptive reading. Mark Edwards explores a diverse range of excerpts and creative responses, with particular emphasis on the treatment of the Gospel in English poetry.

  • Explores the diverse themes and issues raised in John’s Gospel, and considers its influence on figures from Saint Augustine, to Dorothy Sayers and Bob Dylan.

  • Treats well-known interpreters such as Thomas Aquinas along with lesser-known figures such as the Gnostic Heracleon, and the sixth-century hymn-writer, Romanos.

  • Brings ancient and modern commentators into dialogue with each other, and takes a critical stance towards some parallels drawn by modern scholars between the Gospel and the surrounding pagan culture.

  • Features excerpts from a wide variety of poets who give a creative interpretation of John’s Gospel, and considers many artistic representations.

  • Suggests that imaginative response can illuminate a reading of the Bible where purely critical and historical analysis has proved unsatisfactory.

  • An accessible introduction and extensive section notes address interpretations of the Gospel from antiquity to the present.

  • Published as part of the ground-breaking Blackwell Bible Commentaries series.
