For contemporary Christians, John's gospel is a paradox. On the one hand, it stresses boundaries: "e;No one comes to the Father except through me,"e; while on the other it stresses community: "e;I have no longer called you servants, but friends."e; This book encourages readers to draw out the tensions between these two perspectivesto make the gospel more meaningful to their lives.
