The Gospel Of John

Product code: 278076


Twelve passages take you on a journey through The Gospel of John, and help you to appreciate it more fully and pray it more deeply. Each session of 'Take and Read' begins with Hear the word of God, and provides the chosen text from the New Revised Standard Version. Understand the word of God gives an explanation of the text, with quotations from the Fathers and from Church documents in the margins. All this is richly illustrated with Christian art and inspiring photographs. Finally, Live the word of God offers suggestions for reflection and prayer, so that the Scriptures may have a genuine impact on our daily lives.

The Gospel of John is unique among the four gospels. It has been prized by many since early times as a valued source of spiritual nourishment. John's gospel interweaves the easily-grasped world of what is visible and material with the deeper world of reflection, mystery, and the Spirit. Its mystery, timelessness, and freshness constantly surprise us.
