This is a good commentary for getting the feel of John's Gospel as it overviews the passages in a very helpful manner and occasionally gives flashes of insight into the text. If you are aiming to preach on John's Gospel you will find this useful after you've prayed over the passage and then started to get your outline, but I would suggest you have something slightly more academic to read alongside it (Carson's commentary on John would be a good one or Keddie's in the EP study commentary series). Although Wiersbe goes into translation where necessary you will need the other commentaries if you come across major issues in the text. However, this is a great commentary to get you started and to spark your thinking for preaching or talks to any age group.
