'Hands down, the best textbook I've found for my Life of Jesus classes. It is superbly organized and very student-friendly with its many illuminating charts, sidebar discussions, chapter summaries of key points, study questions, and glossary of key terms. Fair, even-handed treatment of divergent scholarly views while offering solidly reasoned conclusions grounded in careful scholarship. My students routinely comment on how well-written, interesting and accessible it is. The additional features and updated information contained in this latest edition simply enhance an already stellar book. I heartily recommend it for undergraduate or graduate level students alike.' * JEANNINE GRAHAM, associate professor of religious studies, George Fox University *
'This textbook for studying the Gospels and the historical Jesus presents various views evenhandedly and consistently comes to careful and balanced conclusions. It introduces both older and newer approaches and treats all the major topics. Now augmented and improved!' * CRAIG S. KEENER, F. M. and Ada Thompson Professor of Biblical Studies, Asbury Theological Seminary *
'I have used Mark Strauss' delightful Four Portraits as my main textbook for many years. It is a favorite of mine and my students. I'm thrilled to see this new edition and highly recommend it!' * JONATHAN T. PENNINGTON, associate professor of New Testament interpretation at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary *
'This is the best textbook available for a course on Jesus and the Gospels and now Professor Strauss has made it even better, updated with new material and a fresh look. Rarely do both the instructor and the students rave about a textbook.' * E. RANDOLPH RICHARDS, provost and professor of biblical studies, Palm Beach Atlantic University *
'Extraordinarily well written and thoughtfully organized. This book will be useful to anyone in need of a concise, clear, and knowledgeable guide through the four Gospels.' * FRANK THIELMAN, Presbyterian Chair of Divinity, Beeson Divinity School *
