    1. I am not quite sure what to make of this commentary It has an awful lot of words but doesn t say much Most commentaries engage the text from the bottom of the stack to the top text critical issues, form critical issues, historical critical issues, finishing with systematic theology This commentary really skips mainly to the last step, and is couched in a jargon laden theological discourse that is difficult at times to understand It is useful as a supplement to another commentary like the NICNT o [...]

    2. A seemingly thorough tome on John s Gospel The author presents alternative theories well, but occasionally suffers from a lack of definitive summation e.g he quotes Bultmann incessantly, but seems to disagree with Bultmann on most points where we can infer that he has an opinion.Overall, a good reference commentary on the fourth gospel, but its use is in breadth, not depth.
