FAY, EDITORS 978-0-8254-4510-1 • $25.99 Hardback • 6 x 9 • 256 pages Biblical Studies / Jesus, the Gospels & Acts Kregel Academic Rights: World Available The Gospel of John in Modern Interpretation provides a unique look at the lives and work of eight interpreters who have signifi- cantly influenced Johannine studies over the last two centu- ries. The chapters contain short biographical sketches of the scholars that illuminate their personal and academic lives, fol- lowed by summaries and evaluations of their major works, and concluding with an analysis of the ongoing relevance of their work in contemporary Johannine scholarship. Key thinkers surveyed include C. H. Dodd, Rudolph Bult- mann, Raymond Brown, Leon Morris, and R. Alan Culpepper. An introduction and conclusion by general editors Stanley Porter and Ron Fay trace the development of  Johannine schol- arship from F. C. Baur to the present, and examine how these eight scholars’ contributions to Johannine studies have shaped the field. Anyone interested in the recent history of the study of John will find this volume indispensable. “[The Gospel of John in Modern Interpretation] traces the discussions that drive the gospel’s study and how best to read it. The gospel of John has been an outlier in Jesus studies. This work explains why that should not be so and what one must pay attention to in read- ing this crucial gospel.” —Darrell L. Bock, senior research professor of New Testament studies, Dallas Theological Seminary “Here is an extremely well-chosen collection of vignettes of major Johannine scholars from the late 1800s to the present. Not only do we learn of their contributions and significance, but we get a feel for their lives and social contexts. This is exemplary scholarship modeled in a fashion not quite paralleled anywhere else.” —Craig L. Blomberg, distinguished professor of New Testament, Denver Seminary Stanley E. Porter (PhD, University of Sheffield) is president, dean, professor of New Testament, and Roy A. Hope Chair in Christian Worldview at McMaster Divinity College. His other publications include How We Got the New Testament. Ron C. Fay (PhD, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School) is assis- tant professor of biblical studies at Liberty University.
