Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
For over twenty years, Craig Blomberg's The Historical Reliability of the Gospels has provided a useful antidote to many of the toxic effects of skeptical criticism of the Gospels. Offering a calm, balanced overview of the history of Gospel criticism, especially that of the late twentieth century, Blomberg introduces readers to the methods employed by New Testament scholars and shows both the values and limits of those methods. He then delves more deeply into the question of miracles, Synoptic discrepancies and the differences between the Synoptics and John. After an assessment of noncanonical Jesus tradition, he addresses issues of historical method directly. This new edition has been thoroughly updated in light of new developments with numerous additions to the footnotes and two added appendixes. Readers will find that over the past twenty years, the case for the historical trustworthiness of the Gospels has grown vastly stronger.

Book Description: IVP Academic January 2008, 2008. Paper Back. Book Condition: New. Though the debate has raged since Celsus in the third century, the consensus among serious men of letters on the reliability of New Testament texts is neither simple nor settled. The Jesus Seminar or The Da Vinci Code aside, there exists a broad range of critical opinion especially regarding the Gospels, because these present the life of Him who claimed in various ways 'I and the Father are One.' Blomberg takes all criticism - the disreputable and the serious - into consideration. He also examines the methods and history of criticism and the key critics of recent decades to produce an important counter-agent to revisionist claims. 'Western culture,' writes Blomberg, 'is steeped in the myth that newest means best. So we need to resist this temptation and examine the evidence afresh with as much openness as possible to the directions in which it leads.' The evidence, as it now stands, should move us toward remembering rather than dismembering the words of the Evangelists. Blomberg has given us an excellent introduction to sound historical research in defense of the canonical Gospels. 416 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 20101220182166

Book Description: 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. The Gospels provide the most thorough account of Jesus Christ. But what if the stories about his life and work are legends? Scholars have occasionally cast doubt on the reliability of the Gospels. New approaches to biblical studies have only increased the challenges. Can we continue to trust the New Testament? In this revised edition, Craig Blomberg reveals the faulty analysis and presuppositions that have led to mistaken conclusions about the Gospels, providing scholarly criteria for judging these books and biblical answers to our hard questions. This new edition has been thoroughly updated in light of new developments with numerous additions to the footnotes and two added appendixes. Readers will find that over the past twenty years, the case for the historical trustworthiness of the Gospels has grown vastly stronger. Craig L. Blomberg (Ph.D., Aberdeen) is Distinguished Professor of New Testament at Denver Seminary in Denver, Colorado. His books include Interpreting the Parables, Neither Poverty nor Riches, Jesus and the Gospels: An Introduction and Survey, The Historical Reliability of John's Gospel, commentaries on Matthew and 1 Corinthians, Making Sense of the New Testament: 3 Crucial Questions and Preaching the Parables.
