How to Read the Gospels

Answers to Common Questions
Often Christians, Catholics in particular, find themselves at a loss when faced with questions about the origins and meaning of the Gospels. In this handy, little book Father Harrington, a well-known expert on the bible, gives remarkably clear and complete responses to many of todays most commonly asked bible questions. Father Harrington developed his ideas for How to Read the Gospels while talking with his students at Weston and his parishioners at Saint Peters in Cambridge and Saint Agnes in Arlington. He understands that in todays society there is both a desire and a need to know what makes the Gospels so much more special than other books. In How to Read the Gospels Harrington explains among other things, who wrote the Gospels, who Jesus is, why there are four Gospels and why they are sometimes different from each other. In a straightforward and unassuming way Harrington, teacher that he is, offers a delightful instruction into the deeper realities of the Gospels in the light of faith. He confronts intriguing questions like: Are the Gospels merely history books? Did Jesus really say these things? In doing so he creates the perfect guide for reading the Gospels in the light of modern scholarship. Harringtons introduction to the Gospels is excellent. Written on a popular level, with all technical terminology well explained, it should be a boon to all who want to learn about how to read the Gospels. His approach is sane, well established, and clearly presented, providing good suggestions about using Gospel passages in prayer, spiritual reading, and homilies. It can be used with profit by inquiring lay people, students, and pastors. It is highly recommended. Joseph A. Fitzmyer, S.J. Prof. Emeritus, Bib. Studies Catholic U. of America
