"Schenck (Priests and Warriors, 2013) presents an in-depth look at the Gospels, their relationship to passages in the Old Testament and their placement in the Bible as a whole. Often placing the Gospels side by side when narrating the same events or parables...an arrangement usually reserved for the traditionally synoptic Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke, but here also including John...Schenck shows readers a direct connection among the works. . . . allows for a more robust comparison than simply reading the Gospels separately. For example, readers can now easily see the different treatments of Pontius Pilate for each Gospel. . . . the book succeeds in comparing biblical texts in a way that is straightforward and easy to digest. Such a comprehensive look at the Gospels will give readers a useful path in their own journeys toward criticism and understanding. . . . Notable for its clear organization. . . ."
