`'Dr. Graham Stanton is a renowned exegete and expositor of the Gospels. His The Gospels and Jesus has been a standard teaching tool since it was first published in 1989. I am delighted to have received the updated, second edition. It is a rare achievement for any author to comprehend, digest, and present such a vast amount of scholarly research in a simple, clear, and readable format. From my own standpoint, I am especially happy to see how the recent debates about the historical Jesus are judiciously reflected in the expanded treatment of the subject in this second edition, which deserves as much dissemination and use as the first.'' John P. Meier, University of Notre Dame `Review from previous edition '...an excellent introduction to the present day study of the gospels. The style of the book is simple and attractive.' ' Irish Biblical Studies `'The current updating of Graham Stanton's book will help it maintain its preeminent position as a valuable and authoritative introduction suitable for a wide readership.' ' Keith Elliott, University of Leeds `'I continue to be impressed with how well the author has achieved the aim of covering so much material and so many issues within comparatively brief scope.'' US review of the proposed new edition `'Graham Stanton's book is well-known and highly regarded as an excellent introduction to the study of Jesus and the Gospels. The author is of course a well-known and established New Testament scholar, well-placed to introduce students to the discipline and subject matter. A lot has happened in the field of New Testament studies in the eleven years since the book was first published, and it would be of great benefiit for the book to be revised to take account of these developments.'' UK review of the proposed new edition `'an even better book than before, now presented in an enlarged and attractive format'' Morna D. Hooker,The Epwoth Review `'he has again produced a work that is remarkable for the clarity of its argument and the breadth of its scholarship'' J.E.
