Overview

In The Gospels as Historical Documents, Reverend Vincent Henry Stanton seeks to provide a thorough examination of the historical validity and integrity of the Gospels. Stanton’s historical investigation is divided into three parts: examining the early use of the Gospels in other Christian writings, the accounts of the Synoptic Gospels, and the validity of the fourth Gospel. Each part of this historical study consults modern critical examinations and provides new conclusions from Stanton’s own studies.

Praise for the Print Edition

. . . [Stanton] has for many years past been a student of Christian origins, and has evidenced in previous works the grasp and delicacy of judgment with which he can detect and estimate the details of a complicated historical problem. He is too a critic of independent judgment who does not hesitate to differ from venerated predecessors on his own side, or to yield to the conclusions of the adverse side, when the facts seem to him to require it; and these are the characteristics discernible in the masterly analysis of the external evidence for the Gospels what is contained in the present volume.

The Month: An Illustrated Magazine of Literature, Science, and Art

An excellent feature of this work is an elaborate defense of the tradition which asserts that the Apostle John resided at Ephesus. . . . High praise is given to the exceedingly lucid style and orderly treatment of difficult questions: owing to these admirable qualities, the reader gains a clear understanding of the most complicated problems.
