This compact theological primer from a widely respected scholar offers a well-integrated and illuminating approach to a variety of basic issues in the study of the New Testament:

  • Where, why, and how the Gospels were written and what we should expect from them
  • The reliability and historicity of the Gospel accounts of Jesus' life and ministry
  • The continuing significance of the apostle Paul and his teaching
  • Points of continuity and discontinuity between the teaching of Jesus and of Paul -- and how to bridge the two

In Jesus, Paul, and the Gospels James Dunn has gathered texts from three sets of lectures given in 2009 to Catholic and Jewish audiences in Italy, Spain, and Israel. The resulting book uniquely presents the Gospels to a Jewish audience and Paul to a Catholic audience -- all from a scholarly Protestant perspective. Written to introduce well-informed people to topics that are perhaps new or unfamiliar to them, this book is ideal for readers and students of various backgrounds both within and beyond the Christian community.

"In this clear and insightful book, James Dunn offers a concise yet panoramic view of the origins of the early Jesus movement — a subject in which he has long been a proven master."
Michael J. Gorman
— St. Mary's Seminary and University
"Anyone seeking an introduction to Jesus, Paul, the Gospels, and their interconnections will find no better book than this. The fruit of a lifetime of research by a master scholar-teacher, it is vintage Dunn: clear, concise, creative, and credible."
Scot McKnight
— North Park University
"Jesus, Paul, and the Gospels forms both a capstone and an introduction to Jimmy Dunn's groundbreaking works about the beginnings of Christianity. If I had only one volume to put in the hands of someone who asked, 'Where do I begin to read Dunn?' this would be the book."
