The beauty and richness of the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John are highlighted in this exciting new series of spiritual classics.
Here is the life and teachings of Jesus, as found in the four Gospels in the New Testament--now available in an affordable, important new collection.

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.
