    1. Excellent resource! Michael Card translated the book of John from the original Greek and added a plethora of notes to really explain what the book meant at the time it was written.

    2. I loved this book. It is amazing in the way it takes one of my favorite books of the Bible (John) and makes it come alive.

    3. VERY good book ! Several awakening stories by the author that help the reader see things from the book of John in a different light. I would highly recommend this book to anyone. Whether they be a young Christian looking for fresh milk or an experienced disciple looking for a good t-bone to chew onis book has something for everyone.

    4. This is a great "narrative commentary" of the book of John. Card uses his imagination as well as his scholarly mind to bring the verses and stories to life. I really appreciated his insights and the fact that it is accessibly written.

    5. Book club selection - only on 3rd chapter but so far, enjoying the insight and "behind the scenes" look and gaining a new perspective on the book of John.

    6. There was so much insight and it gave me a fresh look at the Book of John and the Life of Jesus, John, His Disciple, His Ministry
