In his new book, Trustworthy and True: The Gospels Beyond 2000, Adrian Graffy uses the contributions of gospel scholarship to illuminate the gospels with fascinating new insights. He traces the story of Jesus both in the synoptic tradition of Mark, Matthew and Luke, and in the separate tradition of John. He shows how on the basis of the historical record of Jesus, the faith of the early Christian communities developed. He illustrates how the gospels continue to speak powerfully to people of our time and remain 'trustworthy and true' as the third millennium of Christian faith begins.
This book provides a welcome support for all those involved in preaching and teaching the Christian message. For all Christians and all those attracted by the person of Jesus, Trustworthy and True offers a valuable and user-friendly approach to the gospels. It is suitable for use both by individuals and in groups.
Trustworthy and True is ideal as an introductory text for the study of the gospels, as a stimulating aid to the preparation of homilies and scripture group sessions, and as a companion for reflective reading of the gospels.
