The Letters of John: For Everyone Bible Study Guides
by Tom Wright
Publisher:SPCK (Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge)
Formally, this Study Guide is directed to a study group or an individual reading John 1 and 2. Its strategy is evangelical, in that it expects its readers to apply John 1 and 2 to daily life and prayer. Nevertheless, its scholarship is such that it can provide a useful introduction for more academic purposes, or, indeed, when writing sermons. Framed overall by guidelines advising individuals, groups and group leaders, each section focuses on each chapter in turn and follows a single format: an invitation to consider a relevant contemporary experience; detailed specific questions referring to the text; some scholarly notes assisting understanding; suggested prayer; and a summary of the theological import of the chapter. This is informative stuff!
