This book offers a close reading of John 1:1–2:11, but it moves beyond explaining the content of the text. Bringing the whole Bible to bear on the words of John and of Jesus, this book seeks to introduce or to reintroduce people who have known disappointment, failure, and loss to the One who came to provide true life and light. Help is also offered here for those wanting to minister the gospel of Christ to a hurting world. In Jesus Christ, who suffered and died for us on the cross, we are drawn close to the God of loving mercy, filled with his strength, and equipped to support and serve one another in a world desperate for peace and purpose. The question Jesus asked his first two disciples, he asks each of us too: "What are you looking for?" Everything worth seeking is to be found in him.
