Product Description

New issue of a long-popular study illuminating the four canonical Gospels

In this very readable book Richard Burridge depicts Jesus through the four Gospel authors' distinctive portraits of him. Without bogging down readers with technical terminology, Burridge brings to bear his research comparing the Gospels with classical biographies and offers a clear interpretation of each Gospel author's portrait. A striking feature is his use of the ancient symbols of the Gospels - human face, lion, ox, and eagle - to represent each Gospel's unique picture of Jesus.

The third edition of this classic book includes a new introduction by Burridge but retains the second edition's text and page numbering for ease of use.

Editorial Reviews

Desmond Tutu
—Archbishop Emeritus of Cape Town
"Richard Burridge has made erudite scholarship so wonderfully accessible. Four Gospels, One Jesus? is indispensable for anyone who wants a reliable guide to New Testament studies with a disarming light touch."

Rowan Williams
— University of Cambridge
"Richard Burridge's book packs an enormous amount into a relatively small space - solid scholarship, theological acumen, imaginative and sensitive interpretation, a real gift for the telling analogy, all grounded in a manifest passion for the gospels and their unique subject. It is very good to have a fresh edition of this indispensable classic, as learned as it is accessible."

Currents in Theology and Mission
"Pastors will find this book practical, informative, and useful, and may wish to add it to their parish library. It's a good book made better."

Religious Studies Review
"Burridge's Christology symbolized by four living creatures makes an excellent introduction filled with well-phrased insights.

Ian S. Markham
— Virginia Theological Seminary
"Four Gospels, One Jesus? is rightly acclaimed as a classic. . . . Burridge is the C. S. Lewis of Bible scholars.""
