Long reviews Bockmuehl, Ancient Apocryphal Gospels

READING ACTS: Book Review: Markus Bockmuehl, Ancient Apocryphal Gospels.
Bockmuehl, Markus. Ancient Apocryphal Gospels. Louisville: Westminster John Knox, 2017. 344 pp.; Hb.; $40.00
A review by Phil Long.
Conclusion. Bockmuehl contributes a useful introduction to apocryphal gospels which avoids the kind of sensationalism which often accompanies books on non-canonical documents. The glossary of technical terms and extensive bibliography makes this an excellent introduction to the apocryphal gospels.
