The Letters of John: Journeying Deeper into the Johannine Epistles
The three New Testament letters of John are concerned with the development and well-being of the early Christian congregations. They share the significance of Christ’s incarnation and his unique sacrifice, urging the churches to continue to seek God. Although written during the first century, the letters remain a source of wisdom and inspiration for people today.
Respected priest of The Christian Community, Roger Druitt offers a new translation of the letters, along with a thought-provoking commentary that includes both the historical and cultural background to the letters, as well as insightful studies on key aspects such as righteousness, love, and truth.
Throughout, the author illumines the truly modern nature of the letters, showing how they speak to a universal vision of humanity.
