    The book was disappointing in that the author takes for granted the opinions of standard secular scholars regarding the composition of the New Testament. As a specific example, he buys into the poorly supported speculation that the author of Matthew had access to and utilized Mark's gospel account and the remainder of that whole line of thought which denies the early church's historiography (e.g. Matthew was prior to and independent of Mark) in favor of Western modernist (17th century and later) speculations. For Orthodox Christians this sharply reduces the value of his work.
