    This was an enjoyable read on the Gospel of John. Brought out several points that were very interesting and thought provoking. His chapter on "individualism" was particularly helpful.

    This is a great easy to read book about the Gospel of John. Bauckham points out great connections to the OT that will bring greater meaning and understanding of the Gospel.

    Just so we're clear from the start, Goodreads itself says that 2 stars means "it was okay," and that is how I felt about this book. I think it really deserves 3 stars because in my mind, 3 stars out of 5 would be the neutral position "it was neither great nor terrible." But Goodreads says that position is at 2 stars, so I'm following what Goodreads says. As I'm sure those who follow my reviews regularly can imagine, this was an assigned book for one of my seminary classes.

As I'm sure those who follow my reviews regularly can imagine, this was an assigned book for one of my seminary classes. I sincerely doubt I would've read it otherwise. I will make this review brief and simply say that Bauckham failed to retain my attention on multiple occasions. He piqued my interest occasionally but more often bored me, and sometimes he annoyed me with his academic preening and critiquing of other John scholars with whom he disagrees. One can disagree without being pompous about it. It regularly felt as if Bauckham failed to do that. There ARE some great nuggets in here, at least two separate lengthy paragraphs that I found fascinating and thought-provoking, but probably not enough to recommend the entire book.

    This is a really excellent survey of major themes in John's gospel. Bauckham has provided masses of detail, charts and tabulations of material that is worthy of further study and consideration. In this way he approaches themes, such as "Individualism", where Bauckham notes that there are 7 one-to-one discussions in the gospel with individuals. He discusses baptism and the communion in the gospel, avoiding simplistic sacramental interpretations, whilst not neglecting to see secondary associations This is a really excellent survey of major themes in John's gospel. Bauckham has provided masses of detail, charts and tabulations of material that is worthy of further study and consideration. In this way he approaches themes, such as "Individualism", where Bauckham notes that there are 7 one-to-one discussions in the gospel with individuals. He discusses baptism and the communion in the gospel, avoiding simplistic sacramental interpretations, whilst not neglecting to see secondary associations with the sacraments. He analyses and tabulates 100 or so "dualisms" in John - there is a huge amount to consider further here. The in depth exegesis and discussion of John Chapter 1 is very stimulating, showing us how to read with depth, subtlety and with an abundance of stimulating observations and how these themes relate back the OT background.

    This book looks at the Gospel of John, but unlike most commentaries, it is focused on overall themes, rather than individual passages. The author does focus more on individual passages near the end. Overall, I thought it was a good explanation of the Gospel, although many of the themes that the author presented I wouldn't have predicted.

    Unexpectedly I was amazed on the in depth and intricate the detail and intertwining of knowledge the themes were in the story of John. This was put in the top ten of my favorite books of knowledge that I have. Will read more of Bauckham in the future.

    Very compelling This was a digestible and compelling explication of the themes and features of the gospel of John. Helpful take on dualism in chapter 6.

    I enjoyed every chapter in this book except for the one about sacraments. I thought he didn't satisfactorily answer the Traditions argument and instead opted for artificial metrics to determine whether or not he thought there were sacramental allusions. Otherwise, I learned a lot from this book and it will definitely be an important resource for me moving forward. I enjoyed every chapter in this book except for the one about sacraments.

    Difícil concordar com tudo, mas Richard Bauckham é fera demais! Em breve colocarei a resenha, que será para minha cadeira de Teologia do Novo Testamento

    Easy to read, I gave "only" four stars because some of the sections are simply borrowed from his earlier works. Easy to read, I gave "only" four stars because some of the sections are simply borrowed from his earlier works.
