Summary
In this book, through a distinctive evangelical and critical approach, Michael Bird explores the historical development of the four canonical Gospels. He shows how the memories and faith of the earliest believers formed the Gospel accounts of Jesus that got written and, in turn, how these accounts further shaped the early church. Bird's study clarifies the often confusing debates over the origins of the canonical Gospels. Bird navigates recent concerns and research as he builds an informed case for how the early Christ followers wrote and spread the story of Jesus — the story by which they believed they were called to live. The Gospel of the Lord is ideal for students or anyone who wants to know the story behind the four Gospels
Summary
Predicting that religious studies are on the verge of focusing on the Gospels, Bird explores how the Gospels came to be, what kinds of literature they are, and how they relate to Christian discourse about God. He considers how they were shaped by the Christian movement and how they also came to shape that movement in turn. His topics are from Jesus to Gospels, the purpose and preservation of the Jesus tradition, the formation of the Jesus tradition, the literary genetics of the Gospels: the synoptic problem and the Johannine question, the genre and goal of the Gospels, and why four Gospels.
