Reading John for Dear Life: A Spiritual Walk with the Fourth Gospel, by Jaime Clark-Soles
Jaime Clark-Soles takes readers on a dynamic journey deep into the heart of John in this lively reading of the Fourth Gospel. This book is not simply a commentary but a spiritual companion to be read alongside the Bible. Clark-Soles provides important historical and literary insights while illuminating the dramatic characters in John and emphasizing the Gospel’s unique themes and symbols. Her engaging writing style will generate enthusiasm and investment in John’s message. Readers will also appreciate the addition of prayers and well as study questions. This excellent guide will enrich our spiritual journeys while opening ourselves up to Jesus through the words, stories, questions, symbols, and characters we encounter in John’s Gospel.
The book can be ordered through Amazon or Westminster John Knox Press. Register online here .
