    The Gospel of John in Modern Interpretation provides a unique look at the lives and work of eight interpreters who have significantly influenced Johannine studies over the last two centuries. The chapters contain short biographical sketches of the scholars that illuminate their personal and academic lives, followed by summaries and evaluations of their major works, and concluding with an. The peculiar form of the book, its relation to other "apocalyptic" writings, and to the Fourth Gospel, likewise attributed to John, the interpretation of its symbols, with disputed questions of its date, of worship, unity, relations to contemporary history, etc., have made it one of the most difficult books in the New Testament to explain.

      Author Gary Burge has completed a good work in this Guide. Of interest to me was chapter 3 "How the Fourth Gospel Was Built" that addresses the literary seams. These form a major obstacle to interpretation of John , which is not directly addressed by the s: 9.   This book takes a very scholarly approach to the fourth gospel. Brodie presents influences upon John, including Gnosticism, Hellenism, and Judaism. The first quarter of the book is historical, including the history of scholarship on the writing of the s: 2.
