The Letters of John

The Letters of John (Revised Edition)

Publisher – Inter-Varsity Press: Grand Rapids, Michigan, 1988

Author – John R. W. Stott

I have benefited by any commentary written by Stott. He is reverent to the text. He is scholarly. He is fair in identifying the various historical interpretations on biblical phrases that are pregnant with meaning. And most importantly, he writes with a pastor’s heart.

There are dozens of simple statements in this commentary that will linger with me for a very long time. Stott does a beautiful job in clarifying difficulties, summarizing paragraphs, and bringing out application for our souls. Stott has a way of making the Bible book that you are studying become your favorite. Therefore, the book of I John has become the number one book in bringing deep assurance to me personally.
