Item Description...
"While taking account of historical and social dynamics in the setting of John's community, O'Day offers a subtle but sophisticated literary reading of John to show that the listener must experience the movement of the plot within the text of John in order to understand the text as fully as he can...All preachers should own this book for its specific studies of the passages of John, for its clarity in helping us hear the distinctive Johannine theological voice, and for its model of close reading that can guide a preacher working with almost any text." -Homiletic

Publishers Description
The intimate presence of God in Jesus can be found in the gospels of John and can transform sermons. But this Fourth Gospel is often difficult to preach because of its long dialogues and intertwined narrative and theology. Unlike the synoptic accounts of Jesus' life, John's gospel does not fit neatly into the rhythms of the lectionary cycle. Gail O'Day encourages preachers to take on the task of preaching Johannine texts, assimilating these frequently elusive texts into the vital life of the church. Through exegetical guidance, homiletical instruction, and sample sermons, she helps preachers to enter the texts, to be shaped by them, and then to proclaim their message in their fullness. O'Day invites preachers to preserve the unique voice of Johannine texts by defying the traditional tendency to reduce a scripture passage to a central point, and even to abandon such a reductionist approach to biblical texts in general. Completely revised and undated, The Word Disclosed focuses on four of the most popular texts in John (passages involving Nicodemaus, the Samaritan woman, the man born blind, and Lazarus) and includes new or extensively revised sermons on other lectionary texts from John and other parts of scripture.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Good Source for Exegesis  May 12, 2007
O'day has put together much scholarship about the Gospel of John. Her thesis is that to preach it, you must preach the way John preaches, using his timing and characters and letting the congregation in on the story as it comes from John. This is fine, but...there may be other ways that the Gospel speaks to us in this era that are not bound by the structure of John's Gospel as it is written. Scripture has the power to mediate many more messages than were intended by the original writers. I do think it is important to sort things out with John and not just go off on a tangent, however. The passages she uses are a very small part of the actual Gospel and her sermons are interesting, but not necessarily moving.
A Most Welcome New Edition!  Mar 19, 2003
O'Day's Word Disclosed is perhaps the best entry into narrative-critical readings of the Fourth Gospel. Her imaginative and incisive presentations of several of the most important narratives in the Fourth Gospel - including Jesus' encounters with the Samaritan woman and with the Man Born Blind - serve well to "sell" this gospel to undergraduate and graduate students alike. I've been using this book to prepare for lectures now for five years of teaching the Four Gospels, and can happily anticipate including it as required reading.
