New Believers Church Bible Commentary highlights 1, 2, 3 John.

J.E. McDermond is the author of the newest volume in the Believers Church Bible Commentary on 1, 2, 3 John, now available from Brethren Press. The 344 page volume is published by Herald Press as part of a a cooperative project of the Church of the Brethren, the Brethren in Christ Church, Brethren Church, Mennonite Brethren Church, Mennonite Church USA, and Mennonite Church Canada.

The New Testament letters of 1, 2, 3 John were "written during a time of church schism that has left Christians confused and questioning their status before God," says a review from the publisher. The author of the three letters "argues that the Christian life has two fundamental markers: acceptance of Jesus Christ’s role in God’s plan of salvation, and the need to practice love in interactions with other believers." In his commentary, which is the 24th volume in the commentary series, J.E. McDermond "shows that these two crucial concepts are as relevant and important today as they were back then," according to the review.
