Written that you may believe 11 July 2000
By Sr,Sheila Reilly,IHM - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The promise of the subtitle of this interpretation of the Gospel according to John speaks eloquently to what Sandra Schneiders has brought to life in this well researched theological work. As she has noted in the text, one does not simply read the fourth gospel for it is in interacting with it that Jesus becomes real. For me the chief benefit of immersing the self in Sandra's reflection and research has been a deepened experience of the Risen Christ. I have encountered herein a Jesus who is truly the symbol of the God I only begin to know.

Groundbreaking Scripture commentary 19 July 2001
By Patricia L. Marks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Sandra Schneiders is a dynamic teacher as well as being a gifted Biblical theologian and writer. Her refreshing commentary on the Gospel of John helps us see what very few male theologians have been able or willing to see. Her insights are backed up by splendid research and intelligent thought.Her exploration of the Samaritan Woman, for example , in the 4th chapter of John allow us to peer deeply into the real meaning of the text. This is not about Jesus' encounter with one woman. It is about the Johannine community whose members were struggling with their life situation, the tensions over roles for women and men , the meaning of authority in the new dispensation which Jesus has begun. Anyone seriously interested in Scripture should read this fascinating book.

Excellent Study of the Gospel of John 10 April 2008
By D. Starr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book for anyone, lay or ordained, who seeks a deeper understanding of the Gospel of John. Dr. Schneider's insight from a feminist point of view gives one fresh perspective from which to view this scripture. I highly recommend this book.

Written That You May Belive: Encountering Jesus in the Fourth Gospel 31 Jan 2013
By Ruth A. Jewell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Excellent discussion of the theology of the Fourth Gospel. Schneiders provides a fresh insight into the post-Jerusalem Church as it struggled with its own identity, faith and developing theology.
The key to John's Gospel 17 Jun 2014
By Robert P. Heaney - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
John is not only different from the synoptics; it requires a different approach to reading it. Schneiders shows us how.
