When studying Scriptures, questions often arise that encourage reflection and prayer among students of the Bible. But the grace-filled story found in John 7:53-8:11 of the woman caught in adultery seems to demand more answers as there are many textual critics who see the dramatic account as having a problematic history that raises the question whether the verses represent an authentic narrative from the pen of the Apostle John based on an eyewitness occurrence or a later insertion by an unknown scribe after John’s death—an inauthentic story attributed to Jesus.

In his comprehensive study of this controversial passage, author Daniel Merritt seeks to answer questions and offer reasonable arguments for the authenticity of the narrative to John, its present location in the Bible, and its original location in the fourth gospel. As he examines and discusses eight evidences to support his conclusion, Merritt delves into the text, early manuscripts and church councils, style and theology, considering whether the book meets the test of inspiration and canonicity.

Writings on the Ground shares eight thoroughly researched arguments for both the layperson and the serious Bible student who seek a better understanding of John 7:53–8:11.
