5.0 out of 5 stars New Testament commentary 14 Feb 2014
By K. Slater VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent commentary on John's Gospel written by a leading theologian. It is interesting, informative and especially helpfull for preachers and teachers. I have several commentaries on John, all useful in their own way, but I particularly like this one. Sproul has the happy knack of touching on many points that others don't refer to. I would say that this book is in the 'highly recommended' category.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great 11 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I would have no hesitation in recommending this book to anyone who wanted to learn more of Johns Gospel.

Originally preached as fifty seven message R C Sproul draws out the main truths that the Gospel of John contains.

Ones heart is warmed as one reads these messages and in it all Dr Sproul shows forth the Lord in all His glory.

I look forward to reading in the future others in this series of expositions, especially his messages on the book of Acts.

I cannot speak to highly of this book.

Great work done by a very experienced minister who knows His Bible. You are very privileged if you have this in your possession. The offer is free but the knowledge and strength you will gain from reading and studying this volume will enhance your Christian life.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Good Stuff from R.C. Sproul 6 Mar 2010
By EF_IN_MD - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is basically like a series of teaching sermons on the Gospel of John. It has a total of 57 chapters. Each starts with the 15-20 Bible versions to be studied in the chapter. The remainder of the chapter then teaches based on this text. The book comes from the expositional style of preaching, which Dr. Sproul practices at his own church. In fact, there were a series of these on the Book of Acts a year or so on weekend broadcasts of his Renewing Your Mind radio program. I personally find this to be a very helpful way to study the Bible. It is more challenging than simply reading, but better connected than a verse-by-verse commentary. Dr. Sproul is an strong proponent of Reformed Theology and applying academic and philosophical rigor to the study of the Bible. He is, IMHO, a brilliant Bible scholar and teacher. This book is in that tradition. I am currently teaching a study on John to a group of high school students and this has proved a very useful resource to augment the study we are using which is, in my mind, a bit shallow. It was well worth the money I paid for it. I look forward to other books in this series.

2.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars for content, 2 stars for Kindle translation 8 Sep 2010
By Average Joe Sproul Lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A masterful work on the timeless Gospel of John by Dr. R. C. Sproul, marred only by the careless transcription to the Kindle version. Some words in the Kindle version appear to be "stuck" together as can be found in, among other places, the opening paragraph of the Good Shepherd Discourse chapter (after the Scriptural reference). The poor print quality is not commensurate with the price tag of $15, and certainly does NOT reflect the high-caliber work associated with Ligonier Ministry and Reformation Trust Publishing. I would gladly take my money back and buy the Hard Copy version. In fact, I recommend that you do exactly that -- buy the HARD COPY version!

5.0 out of 5 stars Reads more like a "real" book than most commentaries 24 Jun 2010
By John Gardner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I was excited to learn that Dr. Sproul was writing a series of new commentaries. He has long been one of my favorite theologians, and is one of the clearest teachers of Scripture that I have encountered. I was a bit concerned, however, that his commentaries might be somewhat more "intellectual" than many of his other books. Often in his lectures, he operates on a different mental plane than most mere mortals!

So it was much to my relief to see that this commentary was very approachable and easy to read. In fact, it is possibly the most accessible book of its type that I've seen. I especially appreciated the format of this book.

Rather than write a verse-by-verse exposition, as many commentators do, Sproul has broken John's gospel into 57 chapters, focusing on individual events and encounters. He then writes his commentary in a very conversational style, often relaying personal stories and analogies to help teach the text. This writing style lends this commentary to reading just like one might read any other typical book, rather than requiring strenuous study like many other commentaries. It is highly recommended for students of Scripture at any level of spiritual maturity or theological experience!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Sproul's best work 17 Dec 2010
By Derick Dickens - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Dr. Sproul is a well-known and respected author. Some of his works include The Holiness of God, Chosen by God, and Now, That's a Good Question!. Sproul is also the head of Ligoneer Ministries and Pastor of St. Andrew's Chapel. To many, including this reviewer, Sproul has been influential towards understanding Biblical Christianity.

However, the commentary on John is not his best work. While there were some good nuggets found in various chapters, the commentary lacked Sproul's engaging style, did not always completely cover the entire topic and the writing style seemed abrupt at times.

For instance, in the chapters on the "Woman at the Well", he never covers the last part of this section in Scripture and the end of Chapter 10 seems to abruptly and awkwardly end. Whether this is a result of poor writing on Sproul's part (which I doubt), the editor's poor editing, or his messages were poorly transcribed from his teachings at St. Andrew's Chapel, I do not know. The commentary is not "in-depth" and many of the practical applications will be familiar with those who have studied Sproul for many years.

There are some positives aspects of this commentary. Sproul tells good stories. Whether he is talking about a man with an IQ of over 180 (Chapter 11) or when Sproul caught a thief (Chapter 12), those who love listening to him can almost hear his voice as he is telling these stories. As well, this commentary is faithful to historic Christianity and is easy to read for everyone.

If you are new to Sproul, I would highly recommend any of the above books mentioned in this review. Sproul is a great author who has produced a myriad of great works and has written many books that will excite your soul.

While Sproul will go down in history as one of the greatest communicators of reformed theology of this generation, I doubt his commentary on John will be used as evidence. While I respect Sproul greatly, I would recommend another commentary on the Gospel of John.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine addition to any Biblical studies collection 12 Mar 2010
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
New light to the texts of the Bible can be made through the thoughts and ideas of other readers. "John" is an entry into the St. Andrew's Expositional Commentary series by R.C. Sproul, a minister and prominent speaker on Bible studies offers his own delve into the insight of the world, as he provides many essays of commentary on several books on the Bible, emphasizing what the important text and offering his own interpretation of the often metaphorical scripture. "John" is a fine addition to any Biblical studies collection.
