- Commentaries I Would Not Do Without by R. Hansen
This is a great commentary. Though I am by no means well read on the book of John to know if Newbigen's thoughts are unique, I found they beautifully express much of what I have come to see as central to the theme and purpose of John. Newbigen has given words to many unformed thoughts and impressions I was getting from the book of John. Before Newbigen I would get impressions from a text in John, get excited about it, but when I consulted commentaries they would not talk about any of what I saw. Oh, what a treasure to find Newbigen. My guess is that if I read more I will find other great commentaries that speak of such things, but I doubt I will find one which will express it so well. Expositional, deep, devotional, profound, practical, worshipful.
