With this volume on John the Passion series concludes its study of the meaning of Jesus' death in each of the Gospels. But though last, it is certainly not less important or a repetition of the other Gospels. In fact, John's portrayal of the death is as distinctive and unique as the rest of this "maverick" Gospel.

Father Senior explores how the rest of the Gospel prepares for the Passion story. He then gives a detailed analysis of the Passion narrative itself. Finally, he explores the theological motifs that dominate the Passion narrative. With scholarly finesse and deep pastoral awareness, he makes John's vibrant message of the Passion speak to our life and times.

Donald Senior, CP, serves as editor of The Bible Today and is president emeritus of Catholic Theological Union in Chicago, where he is also professor of New Testament studies. He received his doctoral degree from the University of Louvain in Belgium and is the author of numerous books and articles on the New Testament. IN the fall of 2001 he was appointed to the Pontifical Biblical Commission by Pope John Paul II and reappointed in 2006 by Pope Benedict XVI.

. . . should be purchased now and read before John's passion is solemnly proclaimed next Good Friday.
