John's Gospel is the mature reflections of the last living apostle. John the apostle wrote this book approximately fifty-five years after the resurrection of Jesus. During those years he had reflected on the words and deeds of Jesus and the result is that the pages of the Gospel contain the seasoned thinking of one of Jesus' closest friends. New Testament scholar William F. Cook brings us the latest in the popular Focus on the Bible series.
William F. Cook has taught New Testament for twenty-four years. For the past fifteen years at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. In addition to his teaching, Dr. Cook has been the Lead Pastor at The Ninth and O Baptist Church in Louisville for over fourteen years.
... a sure-footed guide to John's Gospel combining careful scholarship, insightful application and theological depth. His book will stretch your mind, challenge your will and warm your heart.

... a wonderful companion to John's Gospel. Writing for the non-specialist, Dr. Cook makes solid scholarship accessible for everyone. Well-written and insightful introductions, reflections, and study questions relate the Gospel to today's reader.
