In this book, Augustus Neander carefully explores practical and theoretical aspects of John's first epistle to the first century churches of Asia Minor against corruption. Neander begins by discussing the political and religious climate under which John writes the epistle. It was John's task to remind the early Christians that the person of Christ is central to a complete and full understanding of Christianity. By exposing John's epistle, Neander aims to awaken the Christian consciousness. He suggests that Christianity is a way of life, not just a religion, and that the Christian church is the family of God, rather than an institution of creeds and hierarchies. Neander's careful illustration of the writings of John truly illuminates their spiritual value. This book is part of a larger series containing Neander's commentaries on the books of Philippians and James.
