|The 2010 spiritual growth study by Justo L. and Catherine Gunsalus González is at once a scholarly, and yet, at the same time, a very approachable examination of a part of one of three great bodies of work of the New Testament—the Epistles of John.
Explore how 1 John draws the readers to a close bonding between Christ and his followers, as anointed ones, enjoined to remember their baptism. The authors show how 2 John talks about truth and love, and 3 John about unity in love. Together, these Epistles admonish the readers to keep both truth and love--even better, knowing that truth without love is false, and that love without truth is not love. The authors remind us that this is the constant calling that we, the readers of the Epistles, must return today.
The teachers guide, For the Love of God: Epistles of John (Study Guide), provides essential information to increase understanding of the particpants basic text.
