MEDIA REVIEWS
..his approach is informed, balanced, and straightforward. I recommend Apocryphal Gospels highly as an introductory text for graduate students and upper-level undergraduates and also as a vade mecum for anyone desiring a reliable update on the fascinating world of extra-canonical early Christian literature. Catholic Studies, 2004
I want to say from the outset that I recommend this volume to any serious scholar of Christianity Modern writings about apocryphal gospels tend sometimes to promote unwarranted theories or further some ideological point an author wants to make. This book, in contrast, strikes one as balanced. Professor Klauck is particularly careful to provide sufficient context for each of the twelve types of gospel so that the reader can assess which theories are warranted by the evidence and which are not. Anthony J. Blasi, editor of Handbook of Early Christianity: Social Science Approaches
'This is...a useful introduction to the current state of scholarship, and makes a useful contribution to developing research in the study of early Christianity.' N.H. Taylor, King's College, London, Heythrop Journal
'[T]his book has the merit of full discussion of texts...Klauck further provides good bibliographical entries, including references to internet material...This book is a useful survey for further discussion, as it also pays attention to recent trends in scholarship.' A.L.A. Hogeterp, Ephemerides Theologicae Lovanienses--Sanford Lakoff
