Book Review: From Behind the Veil

From Behind the Veil: The Epistles of John (Through New Eyes)From Behind the Veil: The Epistles of John by Peter J. Leithart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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.

Let the saints be joyful in glory, let them sing aloud on their beds, let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples; to bind the kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron. Psalm 149:5-8
