9781596381575: John: That You May Believe (Living Word Bible Studies) (Living World Bible Studies)

John may be the most artful and poetic of the gospels; it demands and rewards study of its literary shape, the power of its metaphors (e.g., the I ams), Jesus' deep discourses, and the beauty of his unfolding passion throughout its chapters. Jesus, the Word made flesh, emerges powerfully and personally, so it is no surprise that John sums up his gospel's message as "so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name" (John 20:31). John offers a theologically deep answer and a compelling historical narrative as to the identity and purpose of God's anointed Son.

About the Author:

A native of St. Louis, Missouri, Kathleen Nielson holds M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in literature from Vanderbilt University and a B.A. from Wheaton College (Illinois). She has taught in the English departments at Vanderbilt University, Bethel College (Minnesota), and Wheaton College. She is the author of numerous Bible studies, and the book Bible Study: Following the Ways of the Word, as well as various articles and poems. Kathleen has directed and taught women's Bible studies at several churches and speaks extensively at conferences and retreats. She serves as director of women's initiatives for The Gospel Coalition and on the board of directors of The Charles Simeon Trust. Kathleen and her husband Niel (president of Covenant College 2002—2012, now leading an enterprise in global Christian education) have three sons, two beautiful daughters-in-law, and a growing number of grandchildren!

Review:

"Because Kathleen Nielsen understands the structure and theology of John's Gospel as it relates to its mastering theme, and because she ( a poet herself) is sensitive to John's use of metaphor and nuanced expression, and because she is committed to letting the text speak for itself, she provides a sure-footed guide through the fourth gospel. An experienced Bible study teacher, her work on John is easy to follow and full of engaging application." --R. Kent Hughes, Senior Pastor Emeritus, College Church in Wheaton

"Our office frequently is asked for solid, Word-based studies for women. And we are delighted to have the Living Word Bible Study series to recommend. Kathleen's love for and high view of Scripture result in careful treatment of the text that equips believers to be diligent Bible students. Her expertise in literature helps us unwrap the rich imagery of John's gospel. The probing questions that dig below the surface—more than merely 'What do you think?'—challenge God's people to grow in grace and encounter the Word who became flesh and dwelt among us." --Jane Patete, Women's Ministries Coordinator, Presbyterian Church in America

"Pastors and Christian educators are always on the lookout for rich, well-researched, reliable, helpful, clear teaching material that will get our people into the Word together, helping us to understand its meaning, to see its implications for us in all of life, and to pray it back to God. These studies supply us with precisely that." --Ligon Duncan, Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church, Jackson, MS
