With each volume of the New American Commentary the anticipation grows for the next. This is especially true of this first volume on John's Gospel from the pen of Dr. Gerald Borchert. John is a favorite of many for study, memorization, and quotation. Nowhere is the gospel message clearer or the presentation of Christ as the true and only Son of God more profound. John's message comes through loud and clear in this volume. Dr. Borchert has succeeded in being intellectually stimulating, while at the same time preserving the beautiful simplicity of John's message in such passages as John 3:16.
