As ancient documents, the New Testament Gospels can seem distant
from contemporary life or irrelevant to modern society. Further
complicating the task of reading the Gospels is the way they seem
to introduce differing, if not competing, pictures of Jesus.
"Reading the Gospels Today" is meant to help Bible readers
understand -- and move beyond -- the difficulties involved in
interpreting Scripture in our current context.
In these insightful studies several biblical scholars explore
the content of the Gospels while also discussing how to read these
writings in relation to each other and in terms of todaybs world.
Some chapters consider issues that vex Gospel criticism; others
look at particular texts or Synoptic themes; still others
demonstrate how onebs immediate interpretive context helps to raise
the issues and shape the answers that are found when we read the
Gospels. Well organized, thoughtfully written, and widely
accessible, this volume will serve to draw readers into the
exciting field of contemporary Gospels study.
