Book Reviews / Horizons in Biblical Th eology 29 (2007) 223-253 239 Th e Gospel of John. New Cambridge Bible Commentary by Jerome H. Neyrey, S.J. Cam- bridge: Cambridge University Press, 2007. xix. Pp. 353. $23.99. In Th e Gospel of John , Jerome Neyrey has brought together over twenty years of his own research and scholarly output on John from a social science perspective. Th e commentary clearly follows a “socio-rhetorical” methodology (p. 1). It stays within its own set parame- ters and advances clear theses about the text overall. Neyrey avoids doctrinaire positions on minor exegetical points and oﬀers a cogent example of the fruits of a certain method for seasoned scholars and even newer students. Neyrey’s book is certainly a success. Th e book is not structured as a line-by-line commentary, but instead oﬀers short micro- thematic analyses of pericopes. After a short introduction (pp. 1-27) and suggested reading list (pp. 28-36), Neyrey divides the text into 95 manageable pericopes with 34 sections interspersed for “a closer look” at some interpretive issue. Th e topics in these “closer look” sections can be quickly referenced to “give readers the biggest bang for the buck” (p. 27).
