Introduction to the Synoptic Gospels
Perkins, Pheme

Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2007 pp. xvi + 312. $28.00


Description: In this book respected New Testament scholar Pheme Perkins delivers a clear, fresh, informed introduction to the earliest written accounts of Jesus ó Matthew, Mark, and Luke ó situating those canonical Gospels within the wider world of oral storytelling and literary production of the first and second centuries. Cutting through the media confusion over new Gospel finds, Perkinsís Introduction to the Synoptic Gospels presents a balanced, responsible look at how the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke came to be and what they mean.
