Publisher's Description

In this highly readable introduction to the Gospels, Edward Adams demonstrates how the four canonical Gospels function separately--as unique accounts of Jesus' life--and as narrative renditions of a shared story: the Fourfold Gospel. Building on the premise that the Gospels are ancient biographies or "lives of Jesus," Adams examines parallel Gospel passages, highlighting the similarities and differences between them. He begins by approaching the four Gospels generally, then looks at each of them individually, and finally considers six key Gospel passages to further explore the unity and plurality of the Gospels in a more focused way. Adams's lucid prose helps to make this text ideal for beginning students of the Gospels.

Author Bio

Edward Adams is Senior Lecturer in New Testament Studies at King's College in London. He is the coauthor of Christianity at Corinth: The Quest for the Pauline Church, published by Westminster John Knox Press.

Editorial Reviews

"Adams has produced a beautifully clear and succinct introduction to reading the one story of Jesus in four distinct narratives. His attention to the four Gospels themselves and to their various shared stories will be a great benefit to teachers and preachers, readers and students--so it is warmly to be commended." Richard A. Burridge, Dean and Professor of Biblical Interpretation, King's College London
"Adams is a reliable guide who wears his scholarship lightly; readers already familiar with the Gospels will find fresh insights from the close reading of the texts, while those new to Gospel study will gain the confidence and skills, and the enthusiasm, to explore them further on their own. Highly recommended for students and for all with an informed interest in the Gospels." Judith M. Lieu, Lady Margaret's Professor of Divinity, University of Cambridge
