John S. Kloppenborg, one of the most respected scholars on the Sayings Gospel Q, has here selected -- and in several cases translated for the first time into English -- ten key articles from German, British, and North American authors on the literary design and construction of Q.

Q research is now regaining its high profile in Synoptic Gospel scholarship, and Kloppenborg's introduction places the debate in the wider perspective of New Testament research.  The literary-critical focus of the volume sets up a kind of dialogue of the essays and serves as a base for approaching other important questions, such as those about Q's theological place in primitive Christianity and the social history of early Christianity in Galilee.
