The Light Has Come: An Exposition of the Fourth Gospel. Mr.

Thousands of books have been written on the Fourth Gospel, but few have had the lasting impact of this modern classic by respected missiologist Lesslie Newbigin. Developed over a period of thirty years during which Newbigin led Bible studies as a bishop in the Church of South India, this excellent commentary on John is unique both in its power to prepare pastors and teachers to effectively declare the Word of God to others and in its ability to clearly communicate John's message to contemporary Western readers.
  • Helps with my bible study on Sunday night. John is a wonderful chapter in the Bible and this book really helps you understand his writing. I would recommend it to everyone. Great!!!!

  • I sometimes tire of reading Bible commentaries that seem to be more about OTHER Bible commentaries than they are about the actual BIBLE. This is not one of those books. It is a true commentary on the book of John alone and is extremely insightful; it took me in directions I would not have thought to go on my own. His exegesis on John 5:19-24 (unity vs. equality) and John 9 (sight vs. blindness) almost brought me to my feet.

  • While not one of Newbigin's most popular books, it is thought by some folks (Wainwright, for one) to be the best introduction to Newbigin's thought. See also "Proper Confidence" and Newbigin's 1994-1995 lectures at Holy Trinity Brompton ...

  • Very good book

  • Newbigin brings his distinctive pastoral and missiological wisdom to a deep and close study of the text. I found it both biblically/theologically insightful and pastorally helpful.

  • While this book is insightful, it's very poorly written. The author writes indirectly and could be so much more pithy and succinct. The book was so agitating, my class at Trinity Lutheran College in Everett, WA decided to nix the book mid-semester. Most of us wish the author could just come out and say what he knows rather than fill space with anecdotes and random information. I would encourage readers who are looking for a book that discusses the gospel of John to find a different book. If you can't, then definitely read this book as it does provide some insight.

  • This book on the Gospel of John is a life changer. The books does two things. First, it takes you through this gospel, presenting the facts along with the repeating themes of the book. Second, it compares modern thinking with the thought life of a person of faith. The author knows the form critics, but he is not intimidated by them. The Amazon reviewer whose class did not like the book says much about the intellectual and spiritual weakness of students. I don't know how this author could have been more clear in his presentation. True, this is not elegant writing; these are high-powered bible study notes, with excellent cross references to other parts of the same gospel, from an author who worked among scholars, and also worked in the mission field. He will not let the reader skip over the huge theological ideas which clearly arise out the text. If bible students are not interested in those ideas, there is not much that a bible teacher can do for them. Christians have no duty to become scholars, but if a Christian can read he has a duty to learn the scriptures themselves. And that includes the ideas about man and God which arise out of the scriptures. If you study the Gospel of John with L. Newbigin, you will have this gospel down solid for the rest of your life, as a spiritual weapon, and you get the added bonus of learning how to think theologically.
