Reviewing Anthony T. Selvaggio's The Seven Signs

Anthony T. Selvaggio's book, The Seven Signs, is a small book, but within the 116 pages, you will find more meaning than in most books. Selvaggio examines the seven signs found in the first half of the Gospel of John. Selvaggio's purpose in writing this book is the very same reason the Apostle John wrote his Gospel nearly 2000 years ago - he wants the readers to know that "Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing (they might) have life in His name" (John 20:31). A major component of Jesus' ministry on earth was the performance of signs and wonders. The book consists of nine chapters and four to nine study questions at the end of each chapter. It is a great little book for individual or group studies. It should be noted that the author teaches at a Reformed church and a Reformed seminary, and the publishers distribute books in the Reformed tradition.
