Written That You May Believe

Encountering Jesus in the Fourth Gospel

An illuminating benchmark in scholarship on the Gospel of John, this revised volume includes new chapters and a study guide. An uplifting resource that offers an opportunity to nourish faith and dwell in the liberating truth of Jesus.

Written That You May Believe has quickly become a standard text for the feminist-informed study of the Gospel of John. Scholars have hailed its publication and dedicated a session at the American Academy of Religion to discussing its message. Lay readers find it helpful for accessing the meaning of the Fourth gospel, and small groups use it as a guide in their devotional reading.
