Bauckham on Gospel of John

Bauckham writes, these essays “cohere within an approach to the Gospel that differs very significantly from the approach that has been dominant in Johannine scholarship since the late 1970s.” As such, this volume, with a substantial new introduction, represents a must-have for scholars and students of the Fourth Gospel.
