Book Giveaway – John E. Johnson, Under an Open Heaven

Johnson, John, under open heavenOnce again, to celebrate the end of the summer and beginning of the new academic year, I am giving away a few books. In this case, it is another book I purchase and then discovered I already had it on the shelf. This week I have an extra copy of John E. Johnson, Under an Open Heaven: A New Way of Life Revealed in John’s Gospel (Kregel, 2017). This is a book which reflects good scholarship, but is written for a popular audience and would make a great addition to a pastor’s library. I reviewed this book when it was published, where I commented:

The thirteen chapters of the book read like sermons, with introductory illustrations drawn from pop culture or personal experience, and chapter sections with alliterative headings. He even cites Bob Dylan, which is always a plus. Since the book is written on a conversational level, it would work well in a small group environment or as personal devotional reading. Johnson has included a few questions at the end of each chapter to prompt discussion.

To have a chance at winning these books, leave a comment with your name and favorite chapter / pericope in John’s Gospel so I can contact you if you win. I will randomize the names from the comments and select one winner at random.

I will announce the winner picked at random on September 7, 2018 (one week from now). Good Luck!

  1. In a recent 2-week Greek language immersion class I took, we read and acted out chapter 9 of John many times. In honor of ὁ τυφλὸς I will say this is my current favorite chapter. 🙂 – Dwight Gingrich


  2. I’ve always enjoyed the signs of Christ in the Gospel of John and the beginning verses (John 1:1-5). My favorite sign is found in the metaphor of the living Vine and the branches (John 15:1-8). It’s kind of you to do book giveaways, thank you.

    Summer Love
