Reviews - What do customers think about The Four Gospels: The Contemporary English Version (Tarcher Cornerstone Editions)?
Nice feature to this edition Dec 20, 2009
I think this will give people a good introduction to what Jesus actually taught as opposed to what his later followers made into dogma.
I bought this edition because under the headings they put the parallel reference in the other gospels, making it easy to harmonize between the four. I am doing a study where I need to see what material was unique to each writer and what shared. I wish this reference practice was more common in bibles (without making us look at microscopic references at the bottom of the page.)
It uses the Contemporary English Version, which is a new translation. So if you are new to Jesus' thought and want to understand what he taught without the "thees and thous" and without buying a thick book full of a lot of other material then this book will be a great start.
