Restoring the Portrait from the Gospels
– Darrell L. Bock. Baker Academic.
The author is research professor of New Testament studies at Dallas Theological Seminary. One would not call this a historical study of Jesus, rather it is a coherent portrait of Jesus that emerges from the Gospels. A good, solid resource book for a pastor’s library. The book has been called ‘a judicious synthesis of scholarship…’ ‘A much more fulsome and helpful portrait of Jesus than is offered in many recent treatments of the historical Jesus…’ ‘Ths book drives students to the texts…defends their historical reliability; interpretively distinguishes the Synoptics…and harmonizes all of them as much as possible.’
