The Letters of John
Colin G. Kruse
Series:The Pillar New Testament Commentary (PNTC)
Pillar commentary seeks to clearly explain the meaning of John's
letters to teachers, pastors, and general readers looking for a reliable
resource for personal study. Colin Kruse introduces the important
issues involved in interpreting the Johannine letters, gives
verse-by-verse comments, and provides extensive discussion of John's
major theological themes, including the real humanity of Christ,
atonement, the role of the Spirit, Christian assurance, the meaning of
koinonia, Christian love, and eternal life.
Designed both for
serious students and for general readers of the Bible, the PILLAR NEW
TESTAMENT COMMENTARY volumes seek to make clear the meaning of the text
of Scripture as we have it. The scholars writing these volumes interact
with the most important, informed contemporary debate yet avoid undue
technical detail. Their ideal is a blend of rigorous exegesis and
exposition, scholarship and pastoral sensitivity, with an eye alert both
to biblical theology and to the contemporary relevance of the Bible.
