Having read much of Carson over the years, I knew that this book would go into great detail and had the potential to be a very heavy read. I found however as I worked through it that it was relatively easy to read and Carson’s points well built and not overly technical. Though not overly heavy and technical, the book is also not a lightweight full of filler or fluff. As anyone who has read much of Carson knows, he is no light weight, however this book certainly strikes a good balance between providing an in-depth scholarly walk through John 14-17 and yet remaining accessible to the serious reader.
In short, if you are looking for something to go deep into this part of the Gospel of John that is not overly technical, this is certainly the book for you. If you are preaching through the Gospel of John, this is a definite read.
