"Written in clear and engaging prose, . . . Reading the Gospels walks the fine line between opening the Gospels to the reader without supplanting the Gospels or competing with them. . . . It invites readers into the activity of reading and thinking about the Gospels in conversation with others. The text articulates a Christian and Catholic understanding of the Gospels in ways that allow both Christians and non-Christians to participate in the conversation."
--David A. Bosworth, The Catholic University of America
In Reading the Gospels, Christopher McMahon provides teachers and students with the tools to bring the study of the Gospels to life. McMahon's approach to the text utilizes the historical-critical method, one viewed by the Pontifical Biblical Commission as "the indispensable method for the scientific study of the meaning of ancient texts."
Full of pedagogical tools that will aid the professor and help the students to proactively engage in scriptural analysis themselves, Reading the Gospels includes:
· Introductory historical chapters that contextualize for the student the circumstances in which the Gospels were born
· Detailed analyses of Gospel passages, from a historical and literary perspective
· Alternative interpretations of the Gospel texts for students to consider
· "Questions for Understanding" and "Questions for Reflection" at the end of each chapter
· Ample endnotes for orientation and brief bibliographies for further research
A basic introduction to the canonical Gospels and the issues related to their interpretation, Reading the Gospels will engage students in the kind of detailed analysis necessary for the success of their own future research and scholarly work.
