Kloppenborg, John S.

Louisville: Westminster John Knox, 2008 pp. x + 170. $19.95

Description: The lost Gospel known as Q offers a distinct picture of Jesus that differs markedly from that offered by the apostle Paul. Kloppenborg offers a succinct account of why scholars maintain it existed and demonstrates how they have been able to reconstruct it from the two later Gospels that used it as a source: Matthew and Luke.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Synoptic Gospels, Literature
