Expository Times Compelling book...it is accessible and lively...this is a valuable book that is already a bargain at full price. Church of England Newspaper

It is pretty informative and well written book. I think it treats the historical material fairly and honestly.
I think it gets harder to read toward end, but first chapters are hard to put down. I am not sure if that was me, or authors writing style..
Whatever the case, if you really interested in the subject of who choose the Gospels, or which were the "candidates" and how many. As author says, there are some contemporary weird theories (which of course after reading this book, or looking at history objectively will simply fall apart) that say that Gospels where popping into existence like rabbits. Ancient writings like Gospel of Thomas, Gospel of Peter, etc etc are presented to general audience as legitimate competitors to Christian Canon. To see if this is the case, and why, let's not be lazy and read the book. ;)
