Fruit of Lips, Eugen Rosenstock-Huessy
Book Description Provided by Mr. Dr. Peter Leithart
Since the time of Irenaeus of Lyons, Christians have asked why we have four gospels instead of one harmonized version of the story of Jesus.    In this fascinating and pungent book, Eugen Rosenstock-Huessy sets out to answer this question by linking the four gospels with the aspirations of ancient civilization, the structures of grammar, and New Testament history.    He also shows how the four gospels form a single complex work, fitting together like movements of a symphony.    Rosenstock-Huessy was a German-American philosopher, sociologist, historian, and polymath, one of the most original thinkers of the twentieth century, and saw this slim volume as the culmination of his voluminous life's work.
