All things bookish!

The Back of the Book (from Amazon):  Making use of his true scholar’s understanding, yet writing in an approachable and anecdotal style, Tom Wright manages to convey the simplicity, and helps to unravel the great complexity, of this extraordinary gospel. He describes it as “one of the great books in the literature of the world; and part of its greatness is the way it reveals its secrets not just to high-flown learning, but to those who come to it with humility and hope.” These volumes complete the Gospels in the For Everyone series.

NotJustLaura’s Review:  Am I alone in finding John’s Gospel the most difficult of the four?  Certainly, it asks questions of the reader and in this book Mr Wright has provided some of the answers.  I found this a very lucid walk through the first half of the Gospel although it was harder going than the previous volumes.  Am I up for Part 2?  Of course!
