Jesus for Life

Spiritual Readings in John's Gospel
  • By Richard S. Briggs

This book is for all those who wonder how to hold together spiritual life and the study of the Bible. It asks: "How may we read Scripture for a word of life?" The answer: by reading carefully, critically, imaginatively, theologically . . . in short, spiritually. Richard Briggs offers a series of "spiritual readings" in John's Gospel, going in search of life, and life to the full. Along the way he discovers surprises, love, humor, tears, truth, and suffering, all wrapped up in a profound theology that is designed to be understood by everyone, from newcomers right through to those who have loved John's Gospel for a long time. He leads readers on a life-giving adventure, and models the best of careful reading of the biblical text. In a short concluding essay he helps readers understand what it means to read John's Gospel well; to read it in life-long pursuit of a word of life.
