I just finished Jesus and the Gospels by Craig Blomberg. I was VERY impressed by this book. His structure, exegesis, charts, etc were fantastic. I would highly recommend this book to anyone doing a study of the gospels as a whole or even a particular gospel. He gives a good political, cultural and social background to the gospels. He introduces critical approaches that have been used to interpret the Gospels. He completes the book with a Survey of the Life of Christ that encompasses roughly 200 pages and walks you through each Gospel’s account of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection. This book is an excellent resource.
