As ancient documents, the New Testament Gospels can seem distanced from contemporary life or irrelevant to modern society. Specifically addressing this concern, Reading the Gospels Today focuses on understanding and interpreting the biblical text in our current context.These insightful studies explore the content of the Gospels--especially their pictures of Jesus--while also discussing how to read these writings in relation to each other and in terms of the world in which we live. Some chapters consider the principles of Gospel criticism; others look at particular texts or Synoptic themes; still others demonstrate how one's immediate interpretive context helps to raise and shape the issues and answers that are found when we read the Gospels.ContentsPrefaceAbbreviationsList of ContributorsIntroduction: Reading the Gospels as a Hermeneutical IssueStanley E.
