The last book of eminent Scripture scholar Raymond E. Brown, this work was published the day before his death in August, 1998.
In this seven-day retreat, That You May Have Life, your director is John the Evangelist, author of the fourth Gospel. Through his artful appearance in the role of “Translator” for John, Scripture scholar Raymond E. Brown weaves the evangelist's words into a week of prayer and deepening acquaintance, ending with a list of resources to help you continue this relationship. He brings immediacy to the “Gospel Message” allowing modern readers to understand and resolve difficulties in the text and its interpretation throughout the centuries. Transcending the political struggles and divisiveness of some modern Christians, this retreat will refresh for you what it means to be, first and foremost, a disciple of Jesus.
