    Why are Matthew, Mark and Luke called the synoptic gospels? Which gospel was written first? Why are there differences between them? Why is the gospel of John so different? What is Q?

    If you have ever wondered about these or other questions, then T. D. Alexander's book, Discovering Jesus: Why Four Gospels to Portray One Person?, provides an excellent overview that will begin to answer those questions. After providing an brief overview and then highlighting the common themes between the four gospels, Alexander covers each gospel with two chapters. It is here that the unique aspects of each gospel is explained, covering such areas as audience, authorship, date, and the portrait of Jesus that is being recorded.

    The book is a well-written, simple to understand, and a much needed overview of the gospels. While providing a solid overview, it doesn't use academic and theological words, making it easy for the person in the pew to read. I will reference this work in my teaching of New Testament survey to my church when we cover the gospels, and will recommend it to anyone wanting to gain a greater understanding of Jesus through the gospels.
