Paul Anderson (who is active in the SBL’s ‘John, Jesus and History’ group) has a volume coming out in March through Fortress Press titled The Riddles of the Fourth Gospel: An Introduction to John. As the Publisher’s blurb has it-
Paul Anderson, a leading scholar of the Fourth Gospel, provides an introductory textbook, crafted for a semester course, which leads students through literary, historical, and theological aspects of the Fourth Gospel’s most vexing puzzles. Traditional, historical-critical, and literary-critical approaches are deftly introduced and their limitations evaluated; questions of the Gospel’s authorship, composition, relationship to the Synoptics, and origins in particular historical experiences are succinctly addressed; and distinctive Johannine perspectives on Jesus, the church, and the world are discussed.
Paul has been kind enough to send along a ‘preview’ copy and I’ve completed my ‘preview’.
