Anytime DA Carson writes a book or commentary it usually is a groundbreaking and biblically sound work. It is always held in high regard and this work is no different. Carson is the editor and author of numerous commentaries, the electrical works aimed at the scholar pastor, and Layman alike. This recently repackaged work, the farewell discourse and final prayer of Jesus: An evangelical exposition of John 14-17, is published by Baker books in conjunction with the gospel coalition.
This combination of two individually published Works a d a Carson a few decades ago demonstrate that his Works remain viable even over a large. Of time. While there are no new additions to the individual works, this repackage combination of the two works is a perfect two for one steel. Carson is famous for his password on an application when dealing with theologically weighty passages of scripture and this lightweight lightweight work is a prime example. Carson expositors these four chapters in a manner that can easily be understood and applied to daily life. I plan to use this work heavily when teaching through the Gospel of John the summer, and encourage pastors and laymen to use this work in their studies as well. This is not only a required resource, it is in the top 5 Resource on the section of John in most or all reviews for theological works on the gospel. I without hesitation recommend this resource to anyone who plans on teaching through these sections of the Gospel of John.
