For contemporary Christians, John's Gospel is a paradox. On the one hand, it stresses boundaries: No one comes to the Father except through me, while on the other it stresses community: I have no longer called you servants, but friends. Here, readers are encouraged to draw out the tensions between these two perspectives to make the gospel more meaningful to their lives.

Cynthia Kittredge is an Episcopal priest and associate professor of New Testament at the Episcopal Theological Seminary of the Southwest in Austin, Texas. She is the author of Community and Authority: The Rhetoric of Obedience in the Pauline Tradition and is a contributor to the New Oxford Annotated Bible. She holds a Th. D. from Harvard University.

"The author, a professor of New Testament at Episcopal Theological Seminary of the Southwest, sees the Gospel of John as an invitation to become part of a 'community of friends.' Helpful side notes within chapters explain terms that may be unfamiliar. She succeeds in making readers want to open the gospel to examine what it says." —The Living Church
