This is a general comment on the published reviews of Perrin's book,
not just Parker's review.
There seems a general feeling that Perrin builds a strong case for
relating Thomas to a previous ancient Syriac gospel tradition, but
a much weaker case for deriving Thomas from the Diatessaron in
Perrin may be too inclined to assume that the Diatessaron is the
oldest form of the Syriac gospels and that the Old Syriac is
largely derivative from it.
