Preaching the Word Series: John
John: That You May Believe
R. Kent Hughes

The Preaching the Word series is noted for its unqualified commitment to biblical authority, clear exposition of Scripture and practical application. In this volume on the Gospel of John, Pastor Kent Hughes explores the apostle's unique and powerful presentation of Jesus as the Creator-God of the universe. Hughes's insightful and lively commentary makes this an ideal resource for pastors and all students of the Bible.

While each of the Gospels presents Christ with a distinct emphasis, the Gospel of John focuses on His greatness. As the timeless Creator-God of the universe. As the Word made flesh. As the gracious Lover of our souls who is the only Way to the Father.

Instead of detailing the facts and events of His earthly life, as the other Gospel writers did, John concentrates on the meaning of Jesus' words and the message of His works, clearly presenting Him as the long-awaited Messiah with one mission in mind--to do the work of the Father who sent Him.

The apostle's tremendous vision of Christ has, time and time again, opened the eyes of unbelievers to who Jesus is and to His singular role in our redemption. But its effect on Christians is equally profound, because in John's account the serious reader finds an ongoing, expanding view of the Savior's greatness and the wondrous meaning of His ministry. A view that widens and deepens with each return to this Gospel.

Follow along with Pastor Kent Hughes in this engaging, verse-by-verse commentary as he leads you through this magnificent Gospel. His careful exposition and wise application will guide you to a richer understanding of not only God's greatness, but of His great goodness to us all.

Recommendations for the Series

"It is a pleasure to commend the Crossway Books series of homiletical commentaries authored by Kent Hughes. They fill an enormous vacuum that exists between the practical needs of the pastor/teacher and the critical exegetical depth of most commentaries. With this series, evangelicalism may now claim its own William Barclay. While remaining true to the text and its original meaning, Dr. Hughes helps us face the personal, ethical, theological, and practical questions that the text wants us to answer in the presence of the living God and his illuminating Holy Spirit." --Dr. Walter C. Kaiser, Jr., Academic Dean, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

"The Preaching the Word series is scholars' gold in preacher's grasp, obviously forged in the realities of daily ministry by a minister whose heart burns to make God's Word the guiding light and love of God's people." --Bryan Chapell, President, Covenant Theological Seminary

"The single best resource for faithful biblical exposition available today. A great boon for genuine reformation!" --Timothy George, Dean, Samford University, Beeson Divinity School

"This series will minister to a pastor's soul as well as give him an immense resource for his preaching. And it will minister to the parishioner wonderfully in personal Bible study. The reader will be filled with fresh thoughts about our Lord as well as joyful encouragement for himself. That is what happened to me in reading this." --Dr. Kenneth N. Taylor, Translator, The Living Bible

"There is a long history of informed, edifying biblical expositions that have been mightily used of God to shape and strengthen the church. The volumes of Kent Hughes admirably fit into this tradition." --D. A. Carson, Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

"Throughout the Christian centuries, from Chrysostom and Augustine through Luther, Calvin, and Matthew Henry, to Martyn Lloyd-Jones and Ray Stedman, working pastors have been proving themselves to be the best of all Bible expositors. Kent Hughes stands in this great tradition, and his exciting expositions uphold it worthily." --Dr. J. I. Packer, Author, Knowing God
