Reviews - What do customers think about Harmony of the Four Gospels, A: The New International Version?
Harmonious Nov 6, 2006
Even a student of the Gospels already quite familiar with the details of the life of Christ, will find that the parallel format in chronological order provides a new clarity and richness to the flow of the life and ministry of Christ. While any Gospel harmony is an essential bible study tool, this version has the added benefit of a single bold print path that helps the student tread more easily through the four narratives.
You need this book Apr 2, 2005
Think you know the Gospels? You don't know the Gospels at all until you read this book over and over and over.
Each event of all the four Gospels is printed side-by-side in columns with the continuity of the narratives printed in bold type so that the whole story comes alive, giving the complete narrative from beginning to end as it unfolds.
I have owned this book for over 12 years and I'm still rereading it all the time. It never gets old. It's great for devotionals, for study or for leisure reading.
Great tool for a study of the Gospels! Dec 29, 2002
This is a wonderful tool when studying the Gospel's account of the life of Christ. The author (or should I say editor/compiler?) arranges the texts in harmony, but also includes approximate dates of when the events took place. Some are critical of this approach, wondering how Mr. Daniel came up with the method of dating the events. Mr. Daniel asserts that the method is by no means difinitive. However, by following the feasts and seasons mentioned in the Gospel texts, he does leave us with useful benchmarks as to when these events took place. There are also useful comments about events like the cleansing of the temple. Were there two such events or only one? Mr. Daniel begs the question, then gives his view in the footnotes. This is a great book to use in a long Bible study on the life of Christ - with the emphasis on long. Our care group is currently working our way through the book . . . it's taken us a year and a half, and we're just now half way through! Take your time . . . learn all you can about our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
A Practical Addition to Any Scholar's Library Jul 21, 2001
I used this book during our study of the book of Matthew. Since it is helpful to read the other gospels in order to maximize understanding, the format of this book was perfect. The gospels are printed side-by-side whenever they cover the same illustration so the scholar can make comparisons, achieve clarity, and notice key repetitions. One very useful aspect is that the book has a running story in which the scripture is highlighted, regardless of which gospel, so that the reader following the highlighted text can read the full story of the ministry of Jesus with the maximum amount of detail and with improved chronology.
I don't like the format Jul 19, 2001
This isn't what I expected. I expected 4 columns, one for each gospel, with blank spaces where appropriate. Maybe this would've used more paper, but it sure would've been easier to navigate. With *very* close inspection I can see that there is a boldfaced narrative as promised, but it's not especially bold. It's hard to distinguish the boldface from the regular font. And I don't care for the little titles over the various subsections. Maybe a few footnotes or an appendix explaining where/why the gospels differ on various points or why Daniel placed chapters where he did, but all those titles and varying formats really interrupts the reading. It's not at all what I was hoping for, I'm afraid.
