    1 thought on “The Four: A Survey of the Gospels

    1. A wonderful follow up book to Leithart s A House For My Name, this one focusing on the gospels I hope he plans to do a third to complete the set, focusing on a survey of the entire the New Testament as the completion of God s house.That said, this book was a great study on the gospels, focusing on the complementary aspects of them, showing the continuity and richness of the theology contained in them With deft and able skills, Leithart deflects the common assumptions about Jesus His section on M [...]

    2. This book is a very accessible introduction to the four gospels found in the New Testament It is, as it says, a survey so it is a good place to start It is also a good book for those seasoned in the scriptures as it gives a refreshing new perspective.The gospels are seen as a symphony in four movements beginning with Matthew and ending with John We begin with the Jews Matthew and Jesus as Rabbi teaching the true meaning of Torah followed by Jesus as strong Messiah lion sent to spoil the house of [...]

    3. This is book was packed full of biblical theological insights While I did not agree with every connection that he made, I always gain at least some new insight from Leithart s works My understanding of the Gospels has been enriched from this book Highly recommended

    4. Great in two major respects the overall view of the Four as an organic whole and the distinct contributions of each gospel Very helpful

    5. This book is amazing If you haven t read Leithart s A House for My Name A Survey of the Old Testament it is a must This book follows where A House for my name leaves off I m hoping and wondering if there will be another volume to follow this.The Four covers the four gospels If you ve been unable to read the gospels as nothing than a collection of the stories of Jesus life, this book will help you If you ve been unable to read the gospels as nothing than slightly different versions of Jesus lif [...]

    6. spoiledmilks dot wordpress dot com 2015 03 15 review the four a survey of the gospels Letihart s concern here is for those who miss the point of the Gospels While much of the technical Christological discussions are good and important, Leithart asks, Whatever happened to the Gospels in all this Haven t we left the living, risen Jesus buried in a cave of jargon and metaphysics p 13 The Chocolate MilkBesides the latter half of the chapter on Matthew, I enjoyed the readings on all of the Gospels, e [...]

    7. This book is a must have The current cover has four pictures on it an ox, a lion, an eagle, and a man The cover explains the whole book Each of the Gospels presents Jesus from a different perspective something I always knew, but wasn t sure how to demonstrate Leithart takes the paradigm given in the Old Testament of the four faces of the cherubim, and applies it to the Gospel accounts Matthew is a Jewish Gospel, showing how Jesus retraces the steps of Israel through the era of the kings, and is [...]

    8. Another wonderful contribution to biblical scholarship and the edification of the Church by Peter Leithart The only negative comment I can make is same criticism that I have felt before when reading Peter s books NOT ENOUGH I WANT MORE I especially felt this about his comments on Matthew although everything he gave us in groundbreaking and important The Four is like his A House for My Name Focusing on the biblical theology, themes and structures of the Gospels Most important is his ability to pr [...]

    9. Leithart is always a fascinating read Very clear writing so winsome This isn t an exhaustive survey of the gospels see Carson Moo, or Blomberg But Leithart gives us a sense of the gospels that stick This is classical, theological writing that reflects on the text His exegesis flows though, sometimes questionable from his reflections, not the other way around Leithart is one of the best writers in evangelicalism He has very simple prose, but very beautiful It is a delight to read Very pastoral an [...]

    10. Read this immediately following A House For My Name and in the same way that House walks through the Old Testament, Four walks through the each of the four gospels Leithart treats Acts along with Luke This is every bit as good as House and I highly recommend it to all who have read the previous volume I sincerely hope that Leithart does another volume on the remainder of the NT I d love to see him tackle the Revelation of John I just can t say enough good about House and The Four.

    11. This is basically a continuation of Leithart s earlier book, A House For My Name, extended to the four gospels Though readers of that earlier work which I can t recommend enough , as well as the works of James Jordan, should be sufficiently acquainted with the espoused hermeneutical approach to form many of the same connections and draw many of the same conclusions themselves, there is still plenty of fresh insight presented here, and in a way that few besides Leithart could offer.

    12. Excellent Does a great job at highlighting each of the gospels unique contribution to the witness of Christ Leithart also satisfies the reader by teasing out the various Old Testament themes that are woven into each of the gospels thus accomplishing the great task of displaying how all of Scripture declares Christ.

    13. This is a very good short survey of the four Gospels As usual, Peter Leithart thinks outside the box and gets me thinking out there too This is a follow up to his book A House for My Name Hopefully, Dr Leithart will eventually do something similar with other books in the New Testament like Hebrews and Revelation One can hope.

    14. Phenomenal If you thought Rosenstock Huessy s Fruit of the Lips was good, get this One strength of this book is that anyone can read and profit High school students can work and pastors will find a trove to tease out.

    15. Excellent introduction to the Gospels and the New TestamentThis book is a great for someone who was wants a view insightful and concise introductory to the Gospels and their story themes I would recommend it highly.

    16. A really fantastic read This book, in conjunction with Leithart s A House for My Name, has had a profound effect on the way I read understand the Bible I highly recommend this book to anyone interest in how the story of the Gospel relates to the rest of scripture.

    17. Excellent introduction to the four Gospels A good follow up on his OT survey, A House for My Name.

    18. I highly recommend it It is giving me a sharper understanding of the life and times surrounding what happened to Jesus Christ.Provides a basis for understanding the 4 Gospels in contextis a tremendous springboard for discussion and study and is terrific for group like our men s group.

    19. A little heavy on intertestamental history at the front end, but the chapters on each gospel are good.

    20. It isn t a House for My Name II, but it does include a lot of good stuff The inter testamental summary is a really nice, concise resource just to have on the shelf Very fun.

    21. Tries to be two books intro to NT and analysis of the gospels, but he does not really a complete thought of either Has potential but feels unfinished.

    22. Excellent Explains the purpose and themes of each gospel as a literary work, independent of the other 3 Very engaging.

    23. This little book brings forth a whole new vision for the four Gospels by linking them together in ways most people would never see Could not recommend it
