Parallel Gospels: A Synopsis of Early Christian Writing is an indispensable guide that enables readers to examine more easily how and where the early Christian gospels - Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Thomas, and Q - agree and disagree. Using his own unique approach to translating the originalGreek texts into English, Zeba A. Crook offers the most literal, word-for-word translation available, helping readers to compare the structure, order, style, theology, and vocabulary of each gospel with the others.
Zeba A. Crook is Associate Professor in Religious Studies at Carleton University. He is the author or editor of several books and many articles in New Testament Studies and Christian Origins, and sits on the executive and steering committees of several scholarly societies.
