Review of “Why are there Differences in the Gospels?” by Michael Licona, Foreword by Craig Evans

“Were the Gospel writers poor historians?  Have they told the truth about Jesus?”

“It is very understandable that modern readers of the Gospels raise these questions.  If historians today produced parallel accounts of the life and accomplishments of a United States president or a British prime minister which exhibited the kinds of discrepancies that we find in the Gospels, no doubt their work would be sharply criticized.”

             —Craig Evans, evangelical New Testament scholar, Dean of the School of Christian Thought, Houston Baptist University

Gary:  That’s a pretty amazing statement for any evangelical scholar to make!
