...a book which the ordinary Christian should find heart-warming and helpful, yet it is one to which the preacher could well turn in search of ideas for application based on sound exegesis. It could well be a congregation's 'book of the month' and it certainly deserves a wide circulation.
...at once heart-warming yet biblically rigorous. It provides an excellent model of good exegesis coupled with a warm pastoral heart. I hope we will be seeing many more books from the pen of this author.
This volume by Wallace Benn takes us into the inner sanctum of the Fourth Gospel giving us an intimate portrait of Jesus the Servant-king. Meekness and majesty together inseparably. A beautifully presented portrait of the Savior'
Timothy George, Founding Dean of Beeson Divinity School, Samford University, Birmingham, Alabama
"Simply but faithfully explained; warmly but carefully applied; Wallace's book based on Jesus' farewell teaching in John's gospel is devotional reading at its best, tasty food for the soul and enriching nourishment for the heart."
Adrian Reynolds, Director of Ministry, The Proclamation Trust
Benn's book deals with the five chapters in John's Gospel, chs. 13-17, recording the last words and deeds of Jesus. They are all in short sections written in a manner in which the young Christian can easily follow. They could be read on a daily basis with good profit. A short study guide broadens their scope for the Bible study group. The book is non-controversial, warmly written and 'chatty' in the best sense. The author has gone to the heart of these chapters and gives the reader a feel for some of the great heights and depths found in this part of John . . . well worth reading and praying through.
"When the head and the heart and the passions of the expositor are fully engaged in opening the biblical text, a fine commentary will result. That is what this book is."
