7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By J. Golden on August 7, 2007
Format: Paperback
Basic tool of 20th century biblical scholarship. Presupposes an oral stage in the development of the written gospels and that the pericopes existed as individual identifiable units or "forms" that were allied to certain situations in the life of the early Christian community. The hope is to be able to identify which part of the text goes back to Jesus himself and which were likely to have been "produced" by the early church. This book explains the pioneer efforts of Martin Dibelius and Rudoph Bultmann in applying form criticism to the synoptic gospels.
