Warren Carter leads the beginning student in an inductive exploration of the New Testament Gospels as distinct tales told about Jesus, with different purposes for different circumstances. He takes up the "tale" told by each Gospel and presents a likely reconstruction of its setting, giving particular attention to often overlooked aspects of the Roman imperial setting. A concluding chapter addresses how the Gospels inform and shape our understanding of Jesus of Nazareth. Maps, images, sidebars, and questions for reflection add value to this student-friendly text.
