John wrote his gospel to give us a ringside seat from which to watch the Galilean carpenter whose message changed the world. Mark writes to tell us WHAT Jesus did, and Matthew and Luke write to explain WHY Jesus did it, but John's main concern is to help us discover WHO Jesus is and what it means for us to follow him today.
'Straight to the Heart of John', by popular Bible teacher and scholar Phil Moore, shoots a theological arrow through the Gospel of John, plucking out the most important teachings and presenting them to the populous as a readable and down-to-earth Bible commentary.
Both biblically accurate and jargon-free, the 'Straight to the Heart' series has aimed to deliver scholarly work in a readable and understandable format. Phil Moore, the author of this growing series, masterfully captures fascinating scholarship and puts them on the pages of his devotional book.
Instead of leafing through confusing commentaries, people can read this punchy and relevant book that's covered in theological gems and scholarly riches. The 60 bite-size chapters allow readers to ingest the knowledge in small chunks, helping everything sink into your daily life and Bible reading.
Welcome to a new way of reading the Bible with fresh eyes.
Phil serves as an Elder, Evangelist and Bible Teacher at Queens Road Church, in Wimbledon, London. He also serves as a trans-local Bible Teacher within the Newfrontiers family of churches, and speaks at Newfrontiers conferences. He graduated from Cambridge University in History in 1995. After graduating, he spent a year working as a missionary in France and then six years working for sales and marketing giant Procter & Gamble.
His passionate desire to change lives radically through the clear communication of Scripture led him to leave senior business management and move into church leadership in 2002. He has spent four years working twice through the Bible in the original languages.
Straight to the Heart of John by Phil Moore was published by Lion Hudson in May 2012 and is our 13517th best seller. The ISBN for Straight to the Heart of John is 9780857212535.
This is the second book in Moore's Straight to the Heart series that I've read, the first being Straight to the Heart of 1 & 2 Samuel. This one was good but, for me, it didn't quite reach the heights of the previous one, which I found excellent. Still there are some great insights here, e.g. that believing in Jesus in John's gospel means believing into Jesus. I really liked some of his insights around Jesus' crucifixtion, e.g. that the blood on the vertical and horizontal beams of the cross should make us cast our minds back to the blood of the Passover lamb sprinkled on the doorposts, and the fact that tetelestai (Jesus cry, "It is finished") also means "paid in full" when used of a debt. Good too is his comment that John 20:23 ("If you forgive the sins of anyone, they are forgiven…") isn't telling a few clergymen to absolve their congregations but every Christian to go out and preach the gospel to the world. I was a little disappointed that, in his chapter, 'Why God doesn't heal', he fails to mention that it might not be God's will to heal in every instance, though at least he wasn't suggesting that the fault must be with the sick person, e.g. that they must be lacking in faith or that there must be sin in their lives.
