This commentary expands Johannine studies in two directions. First, drawing on the methods of literary criticism, it gives new force to a view which is both ancient and modern--that John's gospel, far from being a poorly-edited mixture of sometimes-conflicting traditions, is in fact a coherent unity, an account of Jesus which, however diverse its sources, is a finely-chiselled work of art. Second, it indicates that the unity of John's gospel is founded ultimately not on history or theology but on spirituality. This too corresponds to a view which is both very old--John was always known as the spiritual gospel--and very recent. The present study spells out that idea in new detail. It indicates that the account of Jesus is so written that the tensions and complexities of the text reflect the tensions and complexities of human life, providing the reader not only with an account of Jesus but also with an anthropology--a map of the development of the human spirit.

Great book to get another view of the Gospel!

Thomas L. Brodie gives the reader a very stimulating read of John's text. As a pastor who is preaching through the fourth Gospel, I have found Brodie's insights very helpful at times. I also appreciate his helpful summaries of other leading commentaries (e.g., Brown, Schnackenburg, Barrett, Lindars, etc.). There are times when reading this work where you feel as though the author is stetching things a bit too far in order to make a connection, but I would rather have this than the frustration that would come with a writer who never takes a risk.

My advise is to use this in conjunction with another commentary whose primary focus will be exegesis and history. But much will be lost if not consulted.

Brodie's work is an undervalued gem in the trinket-heavy pawn shop of Johannine studies. With most critical commentaries, you either sacrifice ingenuity or orthodoxy; Brodie's work survives with both intact. Not that I agree with all of his conclusions -- but where we differ I can still respect and appreciate his positions. I learned to rely heavily on his commentary in my own current research. Recommended for those who want a more critical introduction to the FG and something beyond the typical (e.g., Brown, Schnack, Carson, and Bultmann).
