R. Alan Culpepper is not a new name to the corpus of Johannine literature that has been released over the last dozen or more years. It was the recommendation of many writers that prompted me to buy this book. I would like to say that I prefer to give good reviews to books and do my best to look for the positive aspects of a book to give it the highest review as I can. Unfortunately, I did not have the same experience as the previous reviewers.

The first thing I would like to say is that Dr. Culpe

Amazing book that really changed the way I read the Fourth Gospel.

A classic, one of the first application of literary/narrative criticism to the Fourth Gospel. Should be a must read for all Johannine students, because I guess in studying the Gospel of John (post-)narratologically, you'll have to start by interacting, criticizing, and even rejecting any one of the theses put forward in this book, and then move on :D

finished it for the second time.

This is a dense read. Very scholarly but not one I will likely go back to much as a local pastor. Other books we used for the same course touched on the points about John's Gospel that I think are relevant to teaching and preaching from the book without taking such a deep dive.

Awesome book for looking at the Gospel of John through a literary vision. It gave me plenty of ideas of concepts to study and the bibliography was great as well - it lead me to some really interesting reads.
