Study St. John’s Gospel

Most of these books are all available in the SE Michigan area through Our Lady of Grace Bookstore in Domino’s Farms (Lobby B). The proprietor, Connie Zander, can be reached at (734) 930-3747 or at olg@rc.net. Just because I recommend a book by a Protestant author, does not imply I agree with everything in the book, only that I have found it helpful for background material, over-all outlines, insights, etc.
