While secular critics and liberal religious scholars have discounted the historicity and integrity of the first three Gospels, evangelicals maintain that the Synoptic Gospels fully support a high view of inspiration and historicity, despite varying views among evangelicals on Gospel origins.

Four evangelical scholars join together in a presentation/response format to examine the three dominant views on Gospel origins. Grant Osborne and Matthew Williams present the Two-Source or Markian Priority View; John H. Niemela presents the Two Gospel or Matthewan Priority View; and F. David Farnell presents the Independence View. Robert Thomas provides a helpful introduction to the issues and a final summary of the discussion.
