Item Description...
Overview
Michael Goulder has made seminal contributions to contemporary New Testament scholarship with studies ranging from the Gospels and Acts to the Pauline epistles. His work has also provoked controversy, especially his view that the Gospels--particularly Matthew_were written as Midrash on the liturgies of the Jewish festivals and calendar. This is a theory upon which some of the bestselling work of John Shelby Spong is based. Goulder also argues that the hypothetical sayings source Q_accepted as fact by the majority of New Testament scholars_ never existed.

Publishers Description
Michael Goulder is an original and stimulating thinker, a former Anglican priest now an atheist who now contributes to biblical scholarship from the faculty of the University of Birmingham. His positions frequently are at odds with many of his contemporaries, but he challenges them, and they are appreciative. Here, a collection of North American scholars respond to his writings on the gospels, and Goulder himself responds. Goulder is the odd man out, and many of us have squirmed from time to time when he challenged our guild to the hilt. That is his specialty, and these essays tell him how fruitful, delightful, and meaningful a stimulus that has been . . . Goulder s proposal may not be a perfect pearl, but is a pearl nonetheless. Krister Stendahl, from the Afterword These essays show how exciting and interesting arguments about the Synoptic Problem at their best can be. David L.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
North American scholars reflect on Goulder's work  Jan 26, 2005
Michael Goulder's writings have heavily influenced the work of famed liberal priest John Shelby Spong, and they have also challenged the dominant positions of the Society of Biblical Literature. This book begins with an introductory essay by Goulder himself, where he traces the origins of his ideas. Following this are five essays on themes that Goulder has discussed through the years. Bruce Chilton has a charitable paper that engages Goulder's view that Matthew was constructed around the Jewish festal year. John Kloppenborg vigorously defends the prevailing idea in NT scholarship that Luke and Matthew drew upon another source other than the Gospel of Mark (called Q), an idea that Goulder rejects. Robert Derrenbacher has a strange article where he argues that Luke could have composed his Gospel on a table with a copy of Matthew on one knee and a copy of Q on the other knee, an idea that Goulder pokes fun at while admitting its possibilities.

There is also an article by Gary Gilbert where he notes that the table of nations in Acts two is meant to illustrate the universal reign of Chrust in the same way Roman table of nations illustrated the universal supremacy of the emperor, an idea that was neither convincing to me or to Goulder, who felt that Acts 2 was constructed with Genesis 10 and 11 in mind.

Finally, there is an essay by Alan Segal where he tries to prove that the man in Christ who was caught up to the third heaven in 2 Corinthians 12 was none other than the apostle Paul himself, a view that Goulder has argued against. There is an appreciative summary of the five articles by Harvard professor Krister Stendahl, followed by brief responses by Goulder.

This is a scholarly book that won't appeal to the average layperson, though it may interest those who are interested in Gospel studies or those who have read Bishop Spong's books. I enjoyed it.
