A canonical gospel can now not be considered as a definitive, self-sufficient account of its subject material. It needs to play its half inside of an complex fourfold polyphony, and its that means and value are thereby transformed.
In elaborating those claims, Watson proposes not anything below a brand new paradigm for gospel experiences — one who engages totally with the on hand noncanonical fabric to be able to light up the old and theological importance of the canonical.
