"Carter's demonstration of the way in which the Gospel of John summons its audience to negotiate the imperial context is bold and compelling...Johannine scholars and other interested readers will benefit from engagement with it...his discussion will surely generate more interest and study in this area. Those who read this book will no longer interpret John's Gospel without an awareness of the ways in which Roman imperial reality is reflected within its pages." -Art Wright, Interpretation, January 2009
'One of the most significant works on this topic yet published, not least because of its scale... the wealth of the evidence that Carter adduces, together with the theoretical sophistication and nuance of his overarching argument, render this an interesting and challenging book.'--Sanford Lakoff
"Carter is at the forefront of those biblical scholars who emphasize the role of interaction with the Roman Empire as an essential horizon for the New Testament literature...This study is a thorough reading of John's text from this vantage point. Serious students will find this an informative and challenging exposition of the Fourth Gospel." - Donald Senior, C.P., The Bible Today, September 2008--Sanford Lakoff "The Bible Today "
"Warren Carter's John and Empire serves as an excellent introduction to the recent movement toward reading the NT in light of imperial Rome. Even though Carter has explored this motif or reading strategy in other books of the NT, he has clearly proven himself as a Johannine scholar. Carter's writing is organized and easy to read. He carefully weaves his argument together between chapters and is careful in his presentation of evidence. John and Empire is a needed contribution to Johannine studies, especially as it relates to this recent movement regarding imperial Rome. It will be difficult for future work on John's context and influences to ignore Carter's contribution." Edward W. Klink III, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University, Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society--Sanford Lakoff "Journal Of Evangelical Theological Society "
'This book offers deep and broad resources for those interested in hearing John's gospel in an imperial context.'--Sanford Lakoff
