      Dear Sean and others,

      You're welcome, Sean. I indeed would like to review it (and will discuss that with you privately), but for the benefit of others on this list, here's the blurb I prepared for Mellen Press (needless to say, I'm very impressed):

      > "Covering the extensive secondary literature on the Gospel of John is a

      > major endeavor, attempted by a few and accomplished by still fewer. Sean

      > Kealy's exhaustive treatment of nineteen centuries of Johannine

      > interpretation, however, does just that! Kealy not only analyzes

      > judiciously the best of modern Johannine interpretation, but he also

      > treats the reader to thoughtful analyses of the many ways the Fourth

      > Gospel has been interpreted and regarded from the second century on.

      > There is no treatment of Johannine scholarship like it--in any

      > language--and no serious Johannine library is complete without it.

      A second matter that may be of interest to members of our listserve is the lineup for the Johannine Literature Sections of the Toronto SBL sessions to be held from November 23-26. The registration information is available on the SBL website (http://www.sbl-site.org/Congresses/index.html), so if you'd like to attend, that site will provide the needed information.

      Dear Paul, Thanks for your information on the John Seminar which I look

      two volumes for review. Let me know if you know any. Again thanks for your
      kindness. Sincerely Sean p. Kealy C.S.Sp.
