Reviews - What do customers think about A Simplified Harmony of the Gospels?
A good unified harmony Feb 1, 2007
I am really starting to like the HCSB translation (Holman Christian Standard Bible) for a reading translation of the bible, even though it is based on the corrupt Wescott and Hort Greek manuscripts. If you can keep that in mind, than this is a nice way to read the four gospels in a unified and fluid way. Recommended only if you are aware of the corrupt text it is based on.
Great Overview of the Life and Ministry of Christ Jan 29, 2006
For people who want to read a unified, simplified account of the four Gospels, this is the book for you! The author uses the new and very readable Holman Christian Standard Bible translation and chocks each page with lots of explanatory notes. Anyone desiring a deeper understanding of the life and ministry of Christ will be greatly aided by this work. A great first "harmony of the Gospels."
SIMPLE AND READABLE! Feb 18, 2002
I've taught Sunday School to adults for years. This new Harmony is super. Great layout, beautiful cover, clear and concise writing. Simplified, but not pablum. Serious scholarship, but crystal clear. The format makes for a very easy and short read. I especially like the way the words in the text to be amplified are set out in bold and matched with the notes at thhe bottom of each page without footnote numbers or fine print. Easy to use. Considering using it as a text for my class to teach the life of Christ. Am looking for companion study guide with review questions or workbook for students. Would welcome suggestions.
