The Epistles of John

The Epistles of John

Publisher – William B. Eerdmans Publishing Company: Grand Rapids, Michigan, 1978.

Author – I. Howard Marshall

I really enjoyed Marshall’s commentary as I was preparing messages from the book of I John.  He is a conservative force amid biblical commentary, who stands strongly upon the penal substitutionary atonement of the Lord Jesus Christ.

But whereas many of my commentaries are Calvinistic in orientation, Marshall presents a Wesleyan Arminian view.  And to the reader’s delight, he sprinkles phrases from the Methodist hymnal throughout this commentary.  It will cause you to sing.

The book is worthy of your purchase.
