9780830828074: The Historical Reliability of the Gospels

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.

Review:

"This volume offers the most complete, accurate and up-to-date defense of a maximalist approach to the Jesus tradition." (Thomas E. Phillips, Religious Studies Review, September 2008)

"If you want an up-to-date, clear and compelling presentation of the evidence for the historical accuracy of the Gospels, this is the book for you!" (Gregory Goswell, New Life, March 6, 2008)

"I warmly recommend this book." (Pieter J. Lalleman, Journal for the Study of the New Testament, 31.5, 2009)

"This new edition provides further interaction with the larger field of scholarship of the past twenty years. Designed for both the informed layperson and theological student/scholar, Historical Reliability sets forth arguments for the gospels as historically sound sources. For the general readership, the central argument is set forth in an engaging and accessible manner. For those more interested in particular issues covered by Blomberg, the footnotes provide access to the context of the discussion. Although not everyone will agree with his conclusions, Blomberg sets forth a compelling case worthy of consideration. For scholar, theological student, and layperson alike, Historical Reliability is a valuable text." (Michael Naylor, The Expository Times, March 2009)

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
