Over at NT Exegesis, Brian Renshaw has a good review of Jesus is the Christ: The Messianic Testimony of the Gospels. Brian concludes:
The insights into the themes and theology of the Gospels are worthy to be read for anyone being introduced to the Gospels. After reading this book students will be able to read the Gospels individually and understand how each story stands in relation to the whole. If one is not convinced that the Gospels present Jesus as the Christ they too should also pick up this book because one would be hard pressed to argue against this notion after reading Bird’s analysis.
May it be so!
