Zeba A. Crook is Associate Professor in Religious Studies at Carleton University. He is the author or editor of several books and many articles in New Testament Studies and Christian Origins, and sits on the executive and steering committees of several scholarly societies.
"Parallel Gospels is a superb achievement which, in a single stroke, addresses the numerous problems of translation, formatting, and arrangement that have plagued current English synopses. It is a tool that is optimally useful. I don't see any feature of either Aland or Throckmorton that should incline the instructor to keep using them once Crook is available (except, of course, inertia)."--John S. Kloppenborg, University of Toronto "Crook's synopsis is unique among English language synopses for its attention to the original language of the gospels. It allows much more meaningful comparison of the wording of the gospels than does Throckmorton. Because of Crook's careful translation of the texts, students who do not read Greek will have unprecedented access to the verbatim agreements among the synoptic."--Colleen Shantz, University of St. Michael's College
