How were the Johannine books of the New Testament received by second-century Christians and accorded scriptural status? Charles E. Hill offers a fresh and detailed examination of this question. He dismantles the long-held theory that the Fourth Gospel was generally avoided or resisted by orthodox Christians, while being treasured by various dissenting groups, throughout most of the second century. Integrating a wide range of literary and non-literary sources, this book demonstrates the failure of several old stereotypes about the Johannine literature. It also collects the full evidence for the second-century Church's conception of these writings as a group: the Johannine books cannot be isolated from each other but must be recognized as a corpus.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review from previous edition Hill's defence of the dissident view extends to 400 pages of lean argument, which prove that when evidence speaks for itself it speaks in favour of the antiquity and early diffusion of all the Johannine writings. * The Journal of Theological Studies *
This is an important book which offers a major challenge. * The Expository Times *
Given Hill's exhaustive and challenging scholarship, we anticipate that the next two works will likewise advance Johannine scholarship and foster further debate. * The Catholic Biblical Quarterly *
Seldom does one encounter a book that both challenges so trenchantly perspectives advocated by so many and makes the case so persuasively. * The Catholic Biblical Quarterly *
