'No New Testament scholar since Bultmann has even attempted - let alone achieved - such an innovative and comprehensive account of New Testament history and theology.' Richard B. Hays 'It is difficult to know which feature of it is to be admired the most: the immense erudition - the lively examples - the easy intelligibility of the writing - the lucid ordering of the argument.' The Expository Times 'No one could read this without learning something fresh about almost every verse of the Synoptics, and being provoked into new wrestling with the text - ' Rowan Williams, Church Times
