As preparing to go into the mininstry full time, this book is an excellent source of comparing the differences in the gospels. I have not finished the book completely yet, but it was recommend by the school that I am working with for my course, and I am glad that it was. I can see this being a long time reference to my preaching and pastoral ministry. I am blessed to have it part of my collections. It is very simple to read, and to follow, and you are soaking up the theology of each gospel before you know it.God BlessBob Hendricksn

Marshall is a renowned NT scholar who is eminently fit to unpack the theological thrusts of the apostolic literature. His efforts to present both the diversity and unity of NT teaching should be welcomed by those who uphold the genuinely human character of Scripture as well as its divine origin. In particular, I appreciate the analysis of the Synoptic Gospels and Acts, not least because of the nuanced ways in which Marshall sees Christ bringing to completion God's work in the OT era. It is also worth noting that the section outlining Paul's theology offers criticism of the new perspective on Paul. Calvinists and premillennialists will naturally take issue with a few of Marshall's comments, but these things notwithstanding, I would urge all serious students of the NT to seize and ingest this excellent book.
