 About the Book 

Wonderful philosophical treatment of the Four Gospels. This is not a commentary on one or all of the Gospels - nor is it really a theology of the Gospels. Rather, ERH explains how the Four Evangelists (Matthew, Mark (Peter), Luke (Paul) and John provide for the Church a means of understanding how Jesus becomes the founder of a new and final age. In their canonical order, the Four Gospels were written in four different decades, meeting the needs of each period to advance the good news into the world. Each of the writers, through their experience of writing were transformed, and as we that read their Gospels. Each builds on the past, and each takes up where the other left off. They are, intentionally, a literary unit, and together they form one Gospel (with Acts). The Four Gospels together are The Fruit of Lips of Jesus and His Body, the Church in the world, without end.For those interested in Modern Higher Criticism of the Bible, this book will be of great interest.This is ERHs last book (published posthumously)and is really his final word. Thus, for those who have already read his works, as expected, it follows and explains further his linguistic philosophy of the Cross of Christ.As usual, ERH is no easy read - but is well worth the effort.
