Sacra Pagina: The Gospel of John by Francis J. Moloney, S.D.B., is a biblical commentary on the Fourth Gospel. This book is edited by Daniel J. Harrington, S.J. and published by Liturgical Press.
No other book of the New Testament has attracted as much attention from commentators as the Fourth Gospel. It has stirred minds, hearts and imaginations from Christianity's earliest days. In The Gospel of John, Francis Moloney unfolds the identifiable "point of view" of this unique Gospel Narrative and offers readers, heirs to its rich and widely varied interperative traditions, relevance for their lives today.
What sets this commentary on the Fourth Gospel apart from others is Moloney's particular attention to the narrative design of the Gospel story. He traces the impact the Johannine form of the Jesus story has made on readers and explicates the way in which the author has told the story of Jesus. Through this he demonstrates how the Gospel story articulates the coherent theology, christology, and eclesiology.
The Sacra Pagina (“Sacred Page”) series presents fresh translations and modern expositions of all the books of the New Testament. Written by an international team of Catholic biblical scholars, it is intended for biblical professionals, graduate students, theologians, clergy, and religious educators. The volumes present basic introductory information and close exposition, adopting specific methodological perspectives while maintaining a focus on the issues raised by the New Testament compositions themselves.
The goal of Sacra Pagina is to provide sound, critical analysis without any loss of sensitivity to religious meaning. This series is therefore catholic in two senses of the word: inclusive in its methods and perspectives, and shaped by the context of the Catholic tradition.
