'Four Gospels, One Jesus? enables readers to experience afresh the colour and texture of all four gospels in their unity and their diversity . . . A must for the shelves of thinking Christians everywhere.' --David Moxon, Archbishop of the New Zealand Dioceses

I bought this book purely because it was on the list for a course I am attending. I thought, "this will be boring", but I was wrong.

The introduction to the book had me interested from the word go, describing our famous and renowned leader Sir Winston Churchill from four different perspectives. This gets the reader thinking about Jesus. All the gospels vary slightly in the way they talk about Jesus, His life, His miracles etc., and many say that they are contradictory. This book helps to show that four different people can talk about the same person, Jesus Christ, in four different ways, and yet they are talking about the same person.

It is a good book for beginners in the study of the Four Gospels, easy to read yet mind-stretching and offering challenges.

Written in very accessible language by a leading biblical scholar, this account of the intentions and strategies of the gospel writers marries analysis of the text with the church's traditional symbolism of the authors

This is a very good introduction to the gospels. The emphasis is on interpreting the gospels in their own terms as literary and theological works. Historical issues are dealt with in a constructive manner.
