Item Description...
Based on many years of teaching, and written to nourish and deepen faith, this pastoral commentary opens the riches of Johns gospel. Writing primarily for those involved in pastoral ministry and avoiding technical language, Fr. Karris presents the entire NAB text in sections, followed by commentaries with solid content, but also with heart. Stressing that we need to read Johns Gospel being aware of context and narrative he shows the interconnectedness of the various passages and shares many contemporary insights from biblical research on Johns gospel. Guaranteed to be an inspiration for personal reading as well as a resource for Bible sharing and preaching, this commentary will speak to anyone eager to explore the Gospel of John.

A dissection and educational look at one of the major books of the Bible  Oct 9, 2008
The book of John is one of the most cherished and important books of the Bible. "John: Stories of the Word and Faith" is a collection of writings on the book. Containing the full text, broken into sections with writings discussing that particular part of the book, it is a dissection and educational look at one of the major books of the Bible. A must for any Bible study group, "John" is a fantastic selection.
Tell All and Sundry  Aug 10, 2008
Fr. Karris, a research professor and past president of the Catholic Biblical Association of America, does a masterful job of showing the sequence of John's Gospel while drawing attention to internal connections. His main framework emphasizes key signs and "representative figures." The seven signs include (1) changing water into wine at Cana, (2) curing the son of a Galilean official from a distance, (3) curing a man who had been ill for 38 years, (4) multiplying barley loaves to feed a crowd, (5) walking on water, (6) healing a man born blind, and (7) raising Lazarus from the dead. Within the exploration of these signs, Karris singles out a number of figures at various stages of faith who serve as models for those who follow. The Blessed Mother, for example, waited patiently for salvation and blessings from Jesus. Lazarus' sister Mary showed generosity when she washed Jesus' feet with perfume.

One of John's main purposes in writing was to bolster the faith of early Christians. Fr. Karris extends that effort by relating challenges presented in John's gospel to those facing modern believers. Commenting on the "steadfast witness" of John the Baptist despite the displeasure of authorities, he asks how we might respond in similar circumstances. In his closing paragraph he calls forth the representative figure of the Samaritan woman, encouraging us to imitate her: "Tell all and sundry what Jesus has done for you."
