This study's methodical unfolding of a vital Fourth Gospel conviction is an important contribution to Johannine experiences. It additionally marks the maturation of recent testomony scholarship from chinese language quarters, a welcome supplement to dramatic development in Asian Christianity around the world on the well known point. In commendable style Leung units the speed and issues the path for fruitful exegetical hard work in generations ahead."
