Introduction to the Synoptic Gospels ePub download

Whether or not you believe Jesus to be divine, you will be quite fascinated with the portrait she has painted of Him. To me it seems somehow cogent. This book is the assigned text for my 300 level theology class at a Catholic university and it has opened my eyes to an historical Gospel much more real than the one I thought I knew from all my years of church-going and King James reading.

Pheme Perkins approaches the Synoptic Gospels (Matthew, Mark, and Luke) from the standpoint of hard research and scholarship and not evangelism. Whether or not you believe Jesus to be divine, you will be quite fascinated with the portrait she has painted of Him. To me it seems somehow cogent. This book is the assigned text for my 300 level theology class at a Catholic university and it has opened my eyes to an historical Gospel much more real than the one I thought I knew from all my years of church-going and King James reading. It is easy to read, thorough, and the Kindel experience gives me the ability to highlight a passage or term from the text and find research on it with a key stroke. This book immerses the reader in what amounts to a well-investigated mystery and invites one to draw one's own informed conclusions based on what is known rather than what has been carelessly supposed.

We used this book for one of my seminary classes. It has a ton of content but seems to be a little wordy and poorly organized. It was a bit of a chore to get through each chapter. However there is a ton of content. Ironically the author projects this book as a "basic read" for non-experts. Even as a seminary student I found it pretty deep and not sure it is too accessible to the general church-going audience. Otherwise it is a pretty good study of the synoptics.

This book is not for someone starting out. It is a very wordy read and is very contradictory in it’s writing style. I think the author is very intelligent and really knows their field, but I shouldn’t need a college degree to read a book.

The content of this book is great. Perkins does a thorough job of introducing the synoptic gospels in a manageable presentation. It is sometimes too in-depth on "rabbit tracks" that seem to wander away from the main focus, but all in all, the material presented is superb.

Unfortunately, the kindle version of this book does not contain real page numbers, as it advertises. This needs to be fixed, and soon! Page numbers are vital when writing papers, citing and such. It is also not available for the Kindle Cloud Reader. I find that odd. It all just seems a bit glitchy. It is sad when the formatting issues get in the way of an otherwise quality book.

Update: Amazon has since updated the listing to no longer specify "contains real page numbers" as is appropriate.

I collected several books on the Synoptic Gospels to use one as a single teaching tool for lay people. This one is not it. Early Christianity was based on the Easter event, to which various stories began to be added. Different communities had different stories. As one collection of stories arrived at a new community, the need arose to issue another collection of stories that conformed to the oral stories that were in use. This book is good, but there are too many charts and arrows for any but seminary students.
