Christianity Today, "Award of Merit, Biblical Studies"(2002)Ephemerides Theologicae Lovanienses "This monograph is an incisive, well-written, mature and valuable study of God in the Fourth Gospel. It should be on the desk of every Johannine scholar and on the shelves of any serious theological library."Larry W. Hurtado "In this book Marianne Meye Thompson admirably addresses Nils Dahl's complaint about the scholarly neglect of the role and interpretation of God in the New Testament. To her earlier important contributions to scholarship on the Gospel of John she here adds an incisive study of God in the fourth Gospel. This book is at once richly informed by scholarly studies of all that it addresses and by impressive familiarity with relevant primary texts reflecting the religious background of John. Thompson provides sure-footed and wisely judged analysis of the subtle and sometimes complex way that the Gospel of John both presents Jesus with reference to God and emphasizes that God is truly revealed in Jesus. This distinctive and valuable study is important for any serious student of the New Testament and early Christianity, a 'must' for studies of the Gospel of John, and should be acquired by any serious library serving these fields."Joel B. Green "This study makes an immediate and profound contribution on three fronts. First, it brings much-needed clarity to the larger question of what it means simply to speak of God. Second, it overturns the widespread consensus that the Gospel of John is focused on Jesus by locating christology within theology. Third, it undertakes a genuinely theological reading of a central New Testament book while taking seriously at the same time the historical and ecclesial location of John's narrative. Characterized throughout by gracious, penetrating engagement with the Fourth Gospel and its modern readers and by maturity of reflection and insight, "The God of the Gospel of John"is a most welcome harbinger of the future of New Testament studies.
