An excellent commentary on John’s three Epistles. Peter Leithart does a great job bringing out the literary and historical dimensions of the text. What sets this apart from some of his other writings is his wonderful application. Over and over again he pushes the text into the life of reader, forcing us to ask questions like, are we loving the brethern, do we love the world too much, etc. The book was very pastoral in nature. There are some technical portions. But it can be easily read and profited from by any Christian.
