Not many books on the canonical Gospels are truly groundbreaking, but this one is. The author and his collegues convincingly challenge one of the most deeply rooted assumptions of contemporary scholarship, namely that the Gospels were written out of and for fairly restrictive early communities that enjoyed relatively little contact with the whole church. This book persuasively argues that both in intent and in reality the Gospels were written for "all Christians."^
