Willard Swartley prepares resources on Gospel of John
The book of John unfolds in multiple layers for both children and adults through the recent work of Willard Swartley, professor emeritus of Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary.
Swartley has created a chart that links the book's content with the Gather 'Round lessons, facilitating this interweaving of resources.
Swartley adds, "The book can be used on its own as a guide for meditation, and parents may find it valuable to extend the Gather 'Round experiences at home." Living Gift contains extensive indices of themes, topics and sources for the items included.
