Why Four Gospels, 2ed

Energion Publications has announced that they will publish the second edition of Dave Black’s Why Four Gospels? The release date is set for October 15, 2010.

This is what the Energion says about the book:

In Why Four Gospels? Dr. Black traces the history, origin, and development of the four NT gospels and challenges the dominant view that Mark was written first and then used by Matthew and Luke in the composition of their gospels. While he relies on both internal and external evidence, Dr. Black places special emphasis on giving due weight to the testimony of the early church fathers.

If you’ve never read Why Four Gospels?, I would highly recommend it. In the book, Dave introduces the confusing subject of the synoptic problem. He talks about the different suggested solutions to the problem, and he offers his own solution.

    I think I’ll instead buy that used copy from Amazon for about $1,000.
