A very positive review of my The Gospel of the Lord by Taylor Brown over at Seedbed.
Michael Bird’s The Gospel of the Lord is a must read for anyone involved in Gospel studies, New Testament studies in general, or anyone (from seminary students to lay people) interested in better understanding the foundational documents of our Christian faith. If I were to recommend one book that not only critically interacts with the major scholarly voices in Gospel studies over the past two centuries, but that also paves a new way forward in understanding the Gospels in their oral-historical and social memory contexts, it would be Bird’s volume. Of all of the books I read in 2015, this one takes first place.
I’m taking that quote straight to the pool room!
