"Can We Trust the Gospels? is quite simply the best effort I have ever read by a serious scholar to communicate what scholars know about the Gospels and why that should indeed encourage us to trust them and thus to trust Jesus Christ."
—Hugh Hewitt, nationally syndicated radio talk show host; Professor of Law, Chapman University
"There is a crisis of confidence about the Gospels, fueled by sensational claims about supposedly new Gnostic Gospels with a 'revised standard' view of Jesus. As Mark Roberts makes clear, the earliest and best evidence we have for the real Jesus is the canonical Gospels, not the much later Gnostic ones."
—Ben Witherington III, Professor of New Testament, Asbury Theological Seminary, author of What Have They Done with Jesus?
"This book not only makes a compelling case for trusting the Gospels, it illuminates the creative ways in which God worked to bring us His Word. Roberts's brilliant little book deserves to be widely read by both skeptics and believers."
—Joe Carter, Blogger (www.evangelicaloutpost.com) and Director of Communications for the Family Research Council
"What F. F. Bruce did for my generation of students, Mark Roberts has done for the current generation. Any student who asks me if our Gospels are reliable will be given this book, and then I'll buy another copy for the next student!"
—Scot McKnight, Karl A. Olsson Professor of Biblical and Theological Studies, North Park University

I highly recommend this book for pastors and laypeople who want to know more about the Gospels and why we can trust their accuracy.
This is a most effective, and accessible presentation of the facts for the historical reliability of the gospels.
Great read. Went through it pretty quick as it was written to be more ingestible for the non-scholar. Read morePublished 24 days ago by KoalaFace
Some wonderful apologetics here. Dr. Roberts writes a fine study readable by anyone. A great defense for the veracity of the Gospel accounts. Good news indeed. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Melvin C. Williams

Theologically conservative and systematic. However, though the book is a wonderful strong Biblically based by a Christian intellectual, the book is not "above your head". Read morePublished 19 months ago by Billy T. Lowe

we have been spiritually captivated by everything by Mark D. Roberts
he is a very gifted writer, teacher and preacher
Too many gaps in his logic and too many omissions. For example he says nothing about Jesus's so called lapse in atonement awareness. Read morePublished on February 25, 2013 by Avid Viewer
