about

Is historical criticism of the New Testament dead? In this telling collection of eight new essays on John's Gospel, John Ashton argues that this is very far from the case. Challenging the assumptions of methodologies which ignore the historical context in which the Gospel was composed, theauthor offers a spirited defence of historical criticism and provides practical demonstration of the many new insights which it has still to yield. The first two chapters treat in greater depth two key themes, the Prologue of John and the Jews, which appeared in the author's Understanding the Fourth Gospel (Clarendon Paperbacks, 1993). A third chapter is intended to supplement and correct this larger work. The rest of the book explores someof the serious theoretical weaknesses in much recent writing on the Gospel and makes some alternative proposals.

Editorial Reviews

`He writes with clarity, scholarly breadth, and with sensitivity for a well-turned phrase ... There is something in his book for almost every Johannine scholar ... it could be used with profit as a reference tool and as a text in graduate seminars on John's Gospel.'Critical Review
