This 1,300+ page book was originally published in four separate volumes: Introduction; The Early Ministry; The Middle Period; The Final Week. The Introduction deals extensively with a variety of critical issues, including the Two-Source Theory, date and authorship questions, and the like. The remaining three sections contain a chronological study of the life of Christ, taking into account the data found in all four gospels.

This resource is worthwhile—especially if you plan on preaching or teaching. You’ll find it an excellent resource. Because it is broken down into relatively short chapters dealing with individual scenes in the life of Jesus, it can be read in a piecemeal fashion. Unless you’re looking to study the life of Christ chronologically and exhaustively—or unless you enjoy reading 1,300 page books—you might do better if you read it in that way.

Written primarily in the 1940's, portions of the book wrestle with the liberalism of its day, particularly source, form and redaction criticism. This is an invaluable resource. (theWord version available).

Thank you for making this module as this is an excellent book that has benefited many people. Just so you know the author's first name is "Rupert" not Rory.
You're right, thank you. Fixed.

Written over 60 years ago, it is as relevant today as it was when Dr. Foster released it to the church.  Modernism has escalated it's attack on the written word, and the Q theory is touted as if it were "gospel."  Dr. Foster used the 1901 American Standard Bible, and it's language style will seem dated.  But it is worth "studying" in depth.
