    I own the hard copy of Upon This Rock, and it is by far the best and most accessible book I have found on the office of the Papacy for the average man like myself. The appendix in the back on the event wherein Simon is named Peter and given the keys is alone worth the price of admission. It is heavily footnoted and is sourced from a host of Protestant sources that back up the Catholic teaching. Excited to have this book in Logos / Verbum and, given the positive reviews below, excited for the study on the Gospel according to St. John as well.

    While I can't comment on "Upon this rock" (yet - hope this comes to production soon!) I own "St. John's Gospel" in another format: It is great! It is modestly subtitled "A Bible Study Guide" - and really, you will find those small questions that get you think again over the verse in question, or related verses from the Ot and NT. As an evangelical, I know this format from my teenage years, and Steve does well with these questions. There are lots of them (some pretty easy, those that aren't will usually give a reference into which direction to look) - and no answer key I know of, so you'll be tasked to think over them. But then, the title doesn't stop, but also says "and Commentary". And that it is. 450+ pages of readable, conservative and catholic verse-by-verse commentary. Steve puts his commentary into nicely digestable chunks of "theological notes", "historical notes", "Church Fathers" etc. There's some (transliterated) Greek sprinkled in where adequate, and lots of theological implications and scriptural cross-referencing, so this makes for a great "pastoral" commentary on John. Don't overlook the "catholic" here. While Steve cites many of the - for evangelicals - 'ususal suspects' (three quarters or more of the extensive bibliography could as well come from an evangelical commentary), this work is thoroughly cross-referenced to the CCC and he doesn't go easy on Luther or "contemporary evangelical" thinking when it contradicts catholicism. But the tone is eirenic, and thus the whole work is very worthwile for non-catholics, too. I'm just looking forward to the Logos edition to have live crosslinks to CCC and the many other cited works!

    Our bible study group used this book over the course of almost two years. Steve Ray's questioning techniques and in depth commentaries make this an excellent resource for study. We highly recommend it and are thrilled that it will be made available in Logos.
