I am maintaining a web page devoted to the Synoptic Problem, and I would
love to see the answers to this query also go to this list. I have found
the following textbook to be a very good and lucid introduction to the
Synoptic Problem as well as form and redaction criticism:
Robert H. Stein, THE SYNOPTIC PROBLEM: An Introduction (Grand Rapids,
Mich.: Baker Books, 1987).
It is written at a level that is appropriate for American undergraduate
students, as well as being quite detailed.
If you are interested in a more technical overview of the major arguments
and seminal essays both for and against the Two Source Hypothesis, then
Arthur J. Bellinzoni, Jr., ed., THE TWO-SOURCE HYPOTHESIS: A Critical
Appraisal (Macon, Ga.: Mercer Univ. Press, 1985)
is an excellent resource.
I also would welcome any suggestions on how the Synoptic Problem Home
Page, now at http://www.mindspring.com/~scarlson/synopt/, may be improved.
