Opening John's Gospel and Epistles, by Philip Comfort and Wendell Hawley

Often while reading through the Gospels and Epistles readers have several questions about background things, “Why did they do that, what did he really mean, who was he talking to,” etc. The everyday reader that does not have a seminary education or a set of commentaries on hand would get excellent use out of this book because it answers those very questions.

Philip Comfort and Wendell Hawley wrote this book in such a way that it could be used by seminary educated or non-seminary educated and still be a valid and useful resource. The introduction itself is 12 pages long and gives the reader so much background information on John’s Gospel and even gives the reader information about conflicts in information. Each chapter in the book gives you an exposition of the chapter, breaks down the passages, locks in on key words and phrases and finishes with almost verse by verse notes of the chapter.

This book would be excellent addition for any student of the Bible looking for a concise and valid resource on John’s gospels and epistles.

Thank you to Tyndale publishing for providing a complimentary copy of this book for review.
