John: The People’s Bible Commentary

John the People's Bible Commentary

John: The People’s Bible Commentary was first published by the Bible Reading Fellowship in 1998.

John was highly influential both in the preparation for (and during) the 2008 Lambeth Conference, which was attended by over 800 bishops from across the Anglican Communion. A new edition of the commentary was issued specifically for the conference and John was one of the texts recommended for pre-conference reading.

Richard Burridge gave one of the Lambeth Conference preparatory lectures on Anglican Approaches to Scripture and during the conference led seminars on the Bible and human sexuality. The latest edition of this commentary was published by the Bible Reading Fellowship in 2013.

Richard Burridge was a general editor, with David Winter and Henry Wansbrough, of The People’s Bible Commentary series between 1996 and 2006.
