The Letters of John
Full Product Description
In his treatment of introductory matters related to 1, 2 and 3 John, Kruse discusses the historical context out of which these letters arose - the crisis of secession within the Johannine community - and explores the questions of authorship, audience, purpose, genre and theological themes. He then provides verse-by-verse commentary on each letter, delving in depth into what John teaches about such key Christian doctrines as the humanity of Jesus, the atonement, the role of the Spirit, Christian assurance, the meaning of koinonia, and eternal life. This highly relevant study brings readers to the central message of John's exhortations - the importance of holding fast to the gospel of Christ and obeying his command to love one another.
The Letters of John by C. Kruse was published by IVP in July 2000 and is our 20095th best seller. The ISBN for The Letters of John is 9780851117768.

"This commentary belongs to the Pillar series, and the series preface provides a good description of the balance of Kruse's commentary: interacting with contemporary debate from the perspective of hearing God's word, and responding to it in obedience.
"Very helpfully, there are extensive 'notes' throughout the commentary, dealing with wider issues such as the teaching authority of the church, sinless perfectionism, the Son's pre-existence or the bases of assurance. These notes, generally a couple of pages in length, helpfully draw together the teaching of the letters, and the Bible, on particular topics, and make the commentary easier to use.
"Overall, this commentary fulfils the criteria of the Pillar series very well. It is clear, readable, and demonstrates genuine warmth for these letters and their application." Churchman
