'I would recommend John's Apologetic Christology, especially to advanced students of the New Testament in need of a book that could provide an orientation to the study of John.' Bryn Mawr Classical Review 'There is some especially interesting discussion of John 8:12-59 and 10:22-39 in which McGrath seeks to show how the Evangelist shapes the dialogue to answer potential Jewish objections. The theme of 'agency' is thoroughly explored, as are the tensions between Jesus as God's 'equal' and the Son's obedience to the Father.' Expository Times '... Dell's analysis does demonstrate that wisdom literature and thinking, however defined, is not alien to the rest of the Hebrew Scriptures but is in a clear continuity with it. The demonstration of this point is a valuable contribution ...'. Perspectives in Religious Studies
