Baker Academic John - eBook

The Gospel of John, full of striking language and symbolism, is familiar to many as a sourcebook of favorite quotations. However, it is far more difficult to read this complex and subtle Gospel as a coherent whole on its own terms. In John to the well-received Paideia New testament commentary [PCNT] series, an expert on John's use of ancient dramatic rhetoric conventions helps students and pastors do just that.

Paideia commentaries explore how New Testament texts form Christian readers by:
  • Attending to the ancient narrative and rhetorical strategies the text employs
  • Showing how the text shapes theological convictions and moral habits
  • Commenting on the final, canonical form of each New Testament book
  • Focusing on the cultural, literary, and theological settings of the text.
  • Making judicious use of maps, photos, and sidebars in a reader-friendly format

This commentary, like each in the projected eighteen-volume series, proceeds by sense units rather than word-by-word or verse-by-verse. Thus, while it focuses on meaning, its major concerns are rhetorical and literary structure.

I want to read this book ASAP for the purpose of writing a paper, so I purchased the ebook. Alas, there's no way to point in the quotation the precise (real/hardcopy) page number in the epub, so I was forced to buy the hardcopy instead. stay off epub if you intend to read the book for writing a paper.
