Within a few decades of the death of Jesus of Nazareth, there emerged within the infant church five literary and theological geniuses: Paul and the writers of the Gospels.

No works of literature have been subjected to such close, persistent scrutiny by so many over the centuries. Yet the Gospels continue not only to fascinate, challenge and inspire, but to reveal new treasures and throw up fresh problems.

Much depends on the questions we ask of them and the level of curiosity and honesty we bring to this task. For while the Gospels represent four magnificent attempts to come to terms with Jesus and the God he revealed, we cannot be surprised when they fail. We should, however, be astonished that they take us so far into Truth – then point even further on.

In this glorious book, Trevor Dennis urges us to follow some of those pointers, to investigate where they lead in the search for the bright gospel beyond the Gospels. We will find ourselves in territory that is sometimes disturbing and sometimes heartening . . . But never less than truly exhilarating.

  • Focuses characters in the Gospels whose lives are profoundly changed by Jesus
  • Examines unresolved tensions in the Gospels
  • Explores the part women played in Jesus’ circle
  • ‘Do you see this woman?’
  • ‘The Vikings were all men!’
  • Rejection rejected . . . and reinstated
  • ‘Here is God: no monarch he, throned in easy state to reign’
With characteristic sensitivity and freshness, Trevor Dennis asks the Gospel authors why they describe things in the way that they do. His rigorous interrogation is attentive to details that are often missed, to characters that are overlooked, and to expressions that are sometimes misconstrued. His own rich analysis of what is going on shows that sometimes the Gospel narratives do not always seem to be fair to their subjects . . . in a most remarkable way Trevor Dennis gives those very narratives a second chance.
