This excellent commentary by Herman Ridderbos engages seriously the host of twentieth-century interpretations of John while also developing its own integral understanding of John in which the Gospel emerges as a profoundly theological work. Ridderbos presents John in its distinctively apostolic character and includes important criteria for the literary and homiletical exegesis of the Fourth Gospel.
Expository Times
"Of considerable importance for all who try to engage with the Fourth Gospel. . . Ridderbos must be considered by all who approach John from a different starting point, for he raises legitimate questions."
"A rich resource for any preacher or student. . . Ridderbos effectively displays the historical and conceptual coherence of the Gospel of John."
Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society
"Readers familiar with Herman Ridderbos have come to expect outstanding scholarship from the well-known Dutch scholar. The Gospel of John: A Theological Commentary should not disappoint anyone. . . Ridderbos's commentary reflects balanced scholarship that endeavors to come to grips with what John was trying to say in his portrayal of Jesus. . . The commentary is a splendid example of theological analysis without postulating redactional layers and is a significant addition to works on John."
Westminster Theological Journal
"Ridderbos manages to comment on virtually everything that affects our understanding of the evangelist's message, and that means that the commentary is ideally suited for pastors, as well as for students whose primary interest is the theology of the Fourth Gospel."
