This is a lively, lucid exposition of the four evangelists' portraits of Jesus. The evangelists' distinctive emphases are set out with flair, imagination, and theological sensitivity. Novices and old hands alike will read the Gospels with new eyes. Four Gospels, One Jesus? is a considerable achievement: Scholarly yet accessible. -Graham Stanton, King's College, London
Writing in the light of the latest scholarship but without using technical terminology, this study carefully works through each of the four Gospels, offering a clear and illuminating interpretation of each Evangelist's view of Jesus based on the traditional Gospel symbols, and then discusses the implications of these four portraits of Jesus for Christians today.
