Great summaries of the various Gospel critics and the traditions (and sub-traditions) that spun off from them. Strimple is a great scholar and his acumen shines through in this work. Of course, it probably needs to be updated at this point.
An excellent and well-written summary of the criticism of modern scholarship in relation to the Gospels, and in Synecdoche, the Scripture in general. A fantastic read that will also passively introduce the reader to modern philosophy, linguistics, and interpretation.
This was ok, not great. Being 20 years old, it's dated and does not cover important movements in the past 2 decades. It's fine for historical survey of past movements. His discussion on Bultmann and his followers is perhaps the best part of the book.
