The original (non-revised edition) had Leon Morris for Hebrews and Glen Barker for Epistels of John. In fact, the only author that remained the same in the revised edition is Alan Johnson's Revelation. Certain upgrades are a blessing, others seem less helpful.
Particularly unhelpful has been Thomas Thatcher's Johanine Epistles. His reboot is a complete recasting of the book. While Glen Barker's earlier edition was quite standard (seeing the troubling passages of John's epistle as tests of faith (So, for Barker, the christian will not "continue in sin" if he is a true Christian... quite often the pastoral plea in relation to first John, following the NIV translation).
Thatcher takes a different path to removing seeming contraditions in First John. He sees "Be righteous as He is Righteous" to mean "Be loving as He is loving." He sees, "No one who is born of God sins" as meaning, No one who is a Christian hates.
For Thatcher... limiting sinning to meaning "hating" and limiting righteousness to "be loving" means that the Gospel of love is being reaffirmed. Perhaps. But the Gospel and love are not to be equated, since Love is a work... and definately difficult to pull off. In fact, I dare say that loving others is about the hardest of all commands. SO if the Gospel and "being loving" are the same thing, then I am sunk. Most people, I dare say, are outside of this Gospel of love. In fact, I only know one who makes the cut.
This theological problem continues through his whole commentary, so it makes it of very little use. I don't know why he would try to maintain that the only commandment that John really cares about is LOVE. Obviously, love is crucial to the book, but it isn't the same as the Gospel of Grace.
I find this update to the Johanine Epistles is less than helpful. You may find other volumes that make this commentary a good buy... but First John was especially weak in this series.
