Kirjan takakannesta:

This rich and engrossing work assembles and catalogs the values, conflicts, and mores of ancient Mediterranean culture pertinent to the Fourth Gospel. Its Gospel outline, detailed textual notes, and "reading scenarios" bring light and life to the social circumstances the Gospel addresses – about childhood, money, divorce, military service, farming, family life, cities, demons, patronage, and a host of other aspects of the ancient world. In many ways, the authors disclose, the Fourth Gospel addresses an alienated antisociety, fundamentally at odds with its predominant culture. With its unique format, charts, and photos, this social-science commentary is the ideal companion for the study of the Fourth Gospel.

"This indispensable guide presents the Johannine reality in its first-century perspective. It is the best attempt yet to locate John within a specific cultural complex of meanings, and in the same accessible style that characterized the authors' previous volume, Social-Science Commentary on the Synoptic Gospels." – Carolyn Osiek, Professor of New Testament (Chicago Theological Seminary)
