This book is the real deal!!  Jun 7, 2008
Blomberg's "Jesus and the Gospels" is no light reading. It is comprehensive and academic, though very accessible and understandable. Blomberg seemingly lays out everything a person could want to know about the four gospel accounts of the life of Jesus. He manages to maintain a strictly evangelical voice throughout, yet his points are intellectually-sound and smoothly articulate and should be helpful to many outside evangelicalism.

Again, the strength of Blomberg's work is its exhaustive nature. Some of the most instructive parts of the book are the historical and political background that he provides. This stuff sets the stage for the gospels to make sense, and evangelicals are certainly guilty of misinterpreting much of Scripture due to a simple misunderstanding (or even ignoring) of context.

Though this work is academic, it is also pastoral. Honestly, the final chapter, in which he summarizes the nature of who Jesus really was and considered Himself to be, is worth the price of the book by itself. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to more fully understand the life of Jesus and is willing to do a little bit of mental work to read, think, and learn.
Great resource  Feb 8, 2008
This book is being used as a text for an on line Life Of Christ class. It continually exceeds other class resources in depth and scope of information. Mr. Blomberg is open to alternative interpretations of questionable historical markers, is seldon dogmatic, but keeps the main thing the main thing. Be prepared to take lots of notes to ensure you catch all the direction changes as he presents differing interpretations of the same event/information. Great use of sources old and new.

The construction of the book is less than stellar. I am only two weeks into the class and back cover has totally seperated from the binding. A little duct tape does wonders. As I said, this is an online class so the book is not hard travelled or misused to account for the damage.
Excellent at charting a faithful course through important questions  Sep 15, 2007
I confess at the outset that I'm a fan of Blomberg, based on what I've read previously.

This is an excellent introduction to the scholarly study of the gospels. Very helpful at covering the ground raised by questions which may or may not be great, may or may not be being asked for good reasons in the academy, may or may not often have insane answers accepted as common currency. This book doesn't appear to fail to do justice to the issues or to those who raise them, but also appears to engage with the evidence in the gospels from sound presuppositions, as well as engaging with those who have different starting points.

Very edifying, hearteningly confidence-inspiring, educational.
Just about the best book out on the technical side of the Gospels  Nov 25, 2006
I must say that I really love this book. This is one of those books that you know you are going to keep always in your library, a book that will help you whether you decide to become a minister a teacher or whatnot. You will, years from now, find yourself coming back to this book again and again because it is just that good. I am going through, well, finishing up, my first half of studying the New Testament at the seminary I am going to. Blomberg's book has truly helped me see and understand the concepts and the considerations and the structures and the messages behind the Gospels (which is primarily what I am studying in the first half of NT study). Yes this book is rather academic, it isn't the kind of book that you would just sit down on a Summer's afternoon to read. Instead, this book helps you to fully appreciate the Gospels, and more to the point, appreciate our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and all that He did and still does in the world. Blomberg's book helps you to realize that the Gospels are living works of writing, that they speak volumes of love, mystery, grace, and yes even judgment toward those of us who dare to see the truth, the way, and the life. Blomberg isn't perfect, and you probably wont agree with each and every detail that he speaks of, which is understandable, but still, you will indeed learn a lot about the NT and the Gospels found therein. I suggest that if you are truly interested in learning about the New Testament and that you have the time and the patience to study fully all that there is to know about the New Testament (and not just some garbage that you might find from the liberal left like the Jesus Seminar and people like John Spong), you really need to begin with this book on the Gospels. Yes be prayerful as you study, but have this book (and the sequel to this book, From Pentecost to Patmos) by your side. You wont be sorry, it will truly help you in your journey with Christ Jesus!
excellent and intelligent conservative Jesus study book!  May 11, 2006
this is a very sane and sober comprehensive dig into a wealth of issues surrounding Jesus studies and the four gospels of the new testament. A tremendous amount of issues are put on the table and you will truly learn alot from this book. Well researched, careful scholarship and a well read author who is indeed conservative, but not a fundamentalist. The only quibble I have with this work is that I wish it dealt a bit more with the greco-roman milieu of miralcles, myths and mystery religions. These subjects are included in this book to be sure, but I think more material would have been helpful. This is only a minor quibble though, after all, one volume can only pack so much into it. I also think that on a few rare occasions His conservative bent may get the better of him, but again, I would say this is rare. It is a bit of a tedious read in some ways, but this is to be expected from a work that is not designed to be a fun narrative story. This is not a devotional read, but rather this work seeks to educate readers on the historical issues of Jesus studies as well as the gospels along with the meaning and understanding thereof. This is sorely needed as too much "bible teaching" today is less than grounded in careful sanity. For a very accurate study of Jesus issues with sanity, don't miss this one! Also see N.T. Wright's, The Original Jesus, and Peter Walker's little book by Intervarsity Press, Jesus in His World. These are top notch intro level books helping one to understand Jesus according to His historical and cultural context.
