- Chuck E. Hill: Who Chose the Gospels? Probing the Great Gospel Conspiracy, Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2010. 18,00 Euro, S. 304
in einer Rezension:
Hill’s work comes as a breath of fresh air after reading both the radical revisionists like Bart Ehrman and the more conservative revisionists like Lee McDonald. If anything, Hill could have made his case a bit more forcefully at times. Read the Gnostic and apocryphal corpora through from start to finish and you will not find a claim made anywhere by the authors of those Gospels that demonstrates that they were even wanting them to be accepted on a par with the canonical texts. Nor do the early orthodox heresiologists ever allege that the sectarians made such claims, as one would have expected to read if they had done so, if only for the sake of denouncing such those claims as a key reasons for rejecting the writings.
