Drawing upon over thirty-five years of teaching and scholarship, Fr. Robert Karris opens the riches of John's gospel for homilists and lay readers alike. He presents the entire NAB text, section by section, followed by theologically solid, heartfelt commentaries written in a non-technical yet clear, precise, highly readable style. Stressing that readers must let John be John, he shows how the various passages are interconnected through their unique context, style, literary conventions, and narrative structures. John: Stories of the Word and Faith speaks to anyone eager to explore the Gospel of John. It will inspire personal readers and serve as an invaluable resource for Bible study groups and preachers.
Commentaries on the Gospel of John abound but few have the popular and pastoral appeal of Robert Karris John: Stories of the Word and Faith. A veteran scholar, Karris academic credentials are sure but in this helpful work he concentrates on making the distinctive message of John available and comprehensible to those who are seeking inspiration and guidance in their own spiritual life and in pastoral service to others. (Fr. Donald Senior, C.P. , Catholic Theological Union)
