The New American Commentary - 1,2,3 John (Akin) (NS-CL)


Through a verse-by-verse analysis of these three epistles, Dr. Akin examines the person and work of Christ, the avenues of assurance in salvation, and the ever present danger of false teaching to the Christian community. What we believe and how we live are carefully explored and shown to be essential to a vibrant Christian life. Although the second and third letters have been somewhat neglected, the first letter has proved to be a perennial favorite of the Church throughout its history. Through careful exegesis, Dr. Akin shows all three epistles of John to be both simple and profound while offering a message for the Church in any generation.
