Raymond Brown was perhaps the greatest 20th century theologian. He applied his insightful intellect to an objective analysis of the then current historic knowledge about Jesus and the author of Luke. He remains one of the rare commentators who makes the reader feel confident that every word, every thought, was carefully and exhaustively researched and chosen to convey the best possible scholarly insight into the Bible. He writes from the perspective of a Christian believer who finds strength for his faith in a rigorous understanding of Biblical text, ancient culture, and the historicity of events on which the Gospels are based. A must read, as are all Raymond Brown texts, for both students of the Bible and skeptics.

Pretty good commentary and easy to read. Mr. Brown comes at John's writings from all angles and leaves the reader excited about the message that continues to draw many believers in to the arms of a living God. I recommend this commentary to men and woman that want to dig deeper in the Word and grow in faith. I thank God for the theologians!!!
