Reviews - What do our customers think?
Timely and in excellent condition  Jan 30, 2010
I did not think that the book would arrive in time for my class but it did. The book was packagwd well and arrived in excellent condition. Thank you for your prompt delivery, well ahead of the expected time. It is not easy looking for religious books without going through a religious store BUT I have been able to find all that I need over this site.
realistic, informed, and intelligent treatment of the synoptics  Dec 3, 2007
Pheme Perkins, a highly respected New Test. scholar in the world of academic New Test. studies, gives a semi-technical introduction to the synoptic gospel writings, as well as other "non-canonical" gospel writings of antiquity. This book explores and explains issues pertaining to: literary, genre, date, historical, intention and more. Does a fine job of situating the synoptics within the wider literary/cultural world of the new testament/gospel era.

From the back book cover- "Perkins situates the Synoptics within the wider contexts of the composition and function of books in the ancient Greco-Roman world, the development of the idea of a New Test. canon, and the continuation of the Gospel genre in the Gospels of the second and third centuries."

Ch.1 What is a Gospel?
Ch.2 Books and believers in Early Christianity
Ch.3 The Quest for Sources
Ch.4 Reading Mark's Gospel
Ch.5 Reading Matthew's Gospel
Ch.6 Reading Luke's Gospel
Ch.7 Gospels from the Second and Third Centuries

Overall, a very fine book to learn from. Good, solid, information. Well done. Only critique I can muster: Perkins seems to assume the reader will be somewhat already informed on some of the issues treated, but not too much so.

This book, along with the treatment of the gospels found in Lee Martin McDonald's book, Early Christianity and It's Sacred Literature, will inform and educate one in a very realistic and sober fashion in regards to the new testament gospel literature.
