"The Gospel According to Saint John is to many people the most precious book in the Bible," says Dr. Barclay in volume 1. In order to bring the tremendous wealth of this Gospel to the reader, Dr. Barclay has accompanied his unique translation of the text with a detailed commentary almost verse by verse. A comprehensive introduction presents additional material, for the author believes that "there is no book that gains so much from the background from which it emerged." Throughout the book, the deeper meaning of "the spiritual gospel" and its fidelity to the inner truth of Jesus' preaching is clearly and significantly brought home. - Back cover
