Four Gospels, One Jesus? is a completely new edition of the widely used student text which
has sold over 12,000 copies.
"This is a lively, lucid exposition of the four evangelists' portraits of Jesus. The evangelists’
distinctive emphases are set out with flair, imagination and theological sensitivity. Novices
and old hands alike will read the Gospels with new eyes. Four Gospels, One Jesus? is a
considerable achievement : scholarly yet accessible". Graham Stanton, Lady Margaret’s
Professor of Divinity, Cambridge.
The book has been updated in the light of recent academic writings by Stanton, Hengel
and N.T. Wright. It also takes into account recent study of the effect and reception of
the gospels. The relevance of the gospels to the Lord of the Rings movies and The
Revised Common Worship Lectionary has also been brought out.
