Item description for Eyewitness: The Life of Christ Told in One Story by Frank Ball...
Overview For two thousand years, people have wondered, questioned, and debated the life of the man we call Jesus. Some thought he was a prophet, while others saw him as an ordinary man. He claimed to be God. Was he? Religious leaders of his day said he deceived the people. Did he?
What kind of man can walk on water, calm a storm, and feed thousands with a few loaves and fish? Repeatedly, eyewitnesses saw miracles too amazing to believe and heard a message about God?s kingdom, where it was more wonderful to give than receive.
Some of the details of Jesus? life were recorded by four of his closest followers. Each account is written from a different perspective, and only one of the four tells the events in chronological order. Therefore, for centuries, the accounts have been told in out-ofsequence fragments.
Eyewitness compiles the information from the Gospels and hundreds of other Bible verses into one chronological story. As you read this account, you can walk with Jesus, hear his voice, see what he does, and discover the joy of following him.

Reviews - What do customers think about Eyewitness: The Life of Christ Told in One Story?
Useful and interesting Mar 8, 2010
"Eyewitness" was the gospel accounts (and related Scripture) combined into one chronological account of Jesus' life and ministry. The author used his own "easy to understand" translation of the gospels. Overall, I enjoyed his translation, though a few times I felt his word choice was poorly chosen and potentially misleading.
Several times, he combined two events into one that are clearly two separate events in the Bible. I also sometimes questioned his sequence of events. However, it was very interesting to get another person's view of what the gospel chronology was like.
This book was read out loud as a group read, and two listeners had never read a "gospels combined and put in chronological order" account before and found it most interesting. It certainly sparked a lot of discussion and investigation of our own.
I liked that the author placed the Old Testament verses that are referred to in the gospels directly into the gospel text as you read along. I thought he did a good job with that.
If you've never read a "gospels combined and put in chronological order" account before, I'd certainly recommend doing so as it gives you a new perspective on events. All I had when I did it was a list of verses to daily look up in a certain order, so having them all worked together in one book does have it's advantages. As long as you keep in mind that "Eyewitness" is not the definitive version but a useful tool, then I'd recommend it.

The life of Christ comes alive Dec 11, 2009
"Eyewitness - the life of Christ told in one story" is a long overdue book. Frank Ball takes all the information from the Gospels (and even Old Testament like Isaiah and Genesis) and puts them into one chronological story of Jesus' life. It is so easy to read and understand and it makes so much sense! I love it as it is making the life of Christ come alive for me. What a great tool for yourself and a phenomenal gift for others. One of the best things about it is that it isn't overwhelming. It is broken down into the individual stories of Jesus' life so you can read a one page account or you can read pages and pages as you get pulled into the living, breathing story of Jesus.
