B&H Books Jesus and the Gospels - eBook

This second edition of Jesus and the Gospels prepares readers for an intensive study of Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and the events they narrate. Craig Blomberg considers the historical context of the Gospels and sheds light on the confusing interpretations brought forth over the last two centuries. The original 1997 book won a Gold Medallion Award from the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association, and this updated version, factoring in new scholarship, debate, critical methods, and the ongoing quest of the historical Jesus, ensures the work will remain a top tool for exploring the life of Christ through the first four books of the New Testament.

This book is a fantastic introduction to the Gospels. Blomberg is able to accurately summarize a whole host of different topics of debate that encircle New Testament Gospel scholarship. He writes like a conservative, but in my view, he seems to fairly represent liberal scholars while not giving up his convictions.
Perhaps THE MOST helpful parts of this book are the detailed footnotes and bibliographies. Whenever something is being discussed, you can always find information for further reading in the notes. I have already ordered a number of resources for further study that would have remained unknown to me had I not read this book.
Worth every penny.
