Are the Gospels simply two-thousand-year-old partial manuscripts penned many years after the original incidents or God's inspired Word preserved by the Spirit and delivered to us through the blood of the faithful? Mark Roberts turns his weblog series on the trustworthiness of the Gospels into book form, and he addresses these issues and more in Can We Trust the Gospels?Digging deep to uncover the sources that the evangelists used, perceived contradictions within the four books and the reason for there being four of them (and why these particular four), Roberts presents a full treatise on the Gospels and their place within theology and Christendom.

Review 1 for Can We Trust the Gospels?: Investigating the Reliability of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John - eBook
Date:April 18, 2013
A very good book overall - my only complaint was the e-book formatting. It was almost as though nobody had done any proof reading - hyphenated words were in the middle of the column (it appeared to be "hard" returns that stayed in when page orientation and font changes were applied), and many of the footnote numbers had part of the footnotes in many cases inserted directly into the text instead of referring to the footnote number at the end of the chapter.

Review 2 for Can We Trust the Gospels?: Investigating the Reliability of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John - eBook
This is a very assessable book that would speak to the Christian who is struggling to reconcile his/her Faith with theologically liberal attacks. The author is very winsome in his wording and actually grants a lot of the liberal ideas (although he doesn't agree with their conclusions). It's good because one doesn't need to take the "blind" conservative approach of "closing ones ears and eyes".My only problem with it is that it is more of a beginner's book on the issue. This is my personal issue because I already knew quite a bit of the things in there and wanted more depth. Nevertheless, it should be a good starter and help to those who may be struggling with these types of issues.

Review 5 for Can We Trust the Gospels?: Investigating the Reliability of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John - eBook
Dr. Mark D. Roberts does an exemplary job at giving a clear and reasonable case for the authenticity of the gospels. Not being a biblical scholar myself, its comfortable to read (there were no overly-academic or convoluted arguments) yet it was still provocative and academically informed. Most importantly, as a Christian it helped me see the beauty and dependability of the gospels. This is definitely a book worth reading.
