The Four Witnesses by Robin Griffith-Jones, an Anglican clergyman, attempts to clarify the distinctions among the four gospels' quite different visions of Jesus. The four witnesses, as Griffith-Jones describes them, are the rebel (Mark), the rabbi (Matthew), the chronicler (Luke), and the Mystic (John). Griffith-Jones asks: "Who were these four writers? Where did they write and when? For whom?". He proceeds to give straightforward, balanced, intelligent answers to those questions. The Four Witnesses is most intent on making the point that each gospel was first written to speak to the situation of a particular religious community. For many readers, this will come as very good news, because it will help them to hear the particular messages that the gospels hold for their own communities today. For this reason, The Four Witnesses will also be a useful resource for Christian education programmes in churches of many denominations. (The book's resources are enriched by several ancillary products, including four accompanying one-hour videos, a CD-ROM, and a Web site. -- Ali Perry-Gallagher
