Review:

“..his approach is informed, balanced, and straightforward.... I recommend Apocryphal Gospels highly as an introductory text for graduate students and upper-level undergraduates and also as a vade mecum for anyone desiring a reliable update on the fascinating world of extra-canonical early Christian literature.” –Catholic Studies, 2004

Hogeterp, Ephemerides Theologicae Lovanienses (A.L.A. Hogeterp, Ephemerides Theologicae Lovanienses, 81/4, (2005))
