Product Description

Scott Lewis invites readers not to approach the text with preconceived ideas, but as if we are reading it for the first time. His clear and concise commentary helps us to be provoked, challenged, and enlightened by the “deceptively simple” but “irony-laden” words and actions of the Gospel’s characters.

The first of the Johannine Letters is more of a homily while the short and terse second and third ones follow the style of ancient letter writing. Lewis calls them “examples and moral exhortation” by the writer who encourages his believing community to behave in a manner consistent with their faith. As ancient as they are, the letters prove that times do not change much. Today’s Christian communities will see their own problems, disagreements, and divisions mirrored in this valuable correspondence so ably explained by the commentator.

Scott M. Lewis, S.J., S.T.D., is associate professor of New Testament at Regis College, Toronto, Ontario, and is also engaged in retreat ministry.
