John: A Daring Vision of Faith delivers a unique understanding of the good news. Dr. Doohan calls John's Gospel a challenging and refreshing foundational document for Christian faith, because it calls to a deep mysticism and avoids the clutter of petty laws and power struggles so typi... cal of inauthentic religion. John's Gospel has always been characterized as coming from the fruits of reflection and deep prayer, and it cannot be comprehended unless one enters into a deep mystical state. The author aids the reader in entering this spiritual state required to truly know John's gospel of Christ. ""Clearly written . . . excellent resource for pastoral leaders . . . lively, solid, and insightful . . . deserves a hearty welcome among both students and teachers in adult education courses . . . should have a wide appeal . . . thoroughly documented, and yet written in a style that will appeal to the ordinary Christian as well as to biblical scholars and theologians.""
