Item description for The NIV Harmony of the Gospels: With Explanations and Essays by Stanley N. Gundry...
Overview This revision of the Robertson/Broadus Harmony of the Gospels attempts a greater precision in defining the "inner movements" of Jesus' life and a deeper understanding of His death and resurrection. This is done through the subdivision of some of the longer sections into smaller portions. Robertson's paragraph numbers have been retained and assigned lowercase suffixes to indicated subdivisions. Explanatory footnotes of historical and geographical features, and of theological and chronological matters have been multiplied in this revision and this work provides the New International Version translation of the gospels which is based on a more literal philosophy of translating the Greek text.
Publishers Description The classic Robertson/Broadus Harmony of the Gospels, newly revised for students of the New International Version.

NIV Harmony of the Gospels Jul 8, 2006
I enjoyed this book and find it full of information that is useful. It is a good reference to use along with your bible.
An eye opener Oct 14, 2003
I am currently reading through this book, which is really a combination of each of the gospel accounts in chronological order. So far the book has been very enlightening and has taught me more about Christ than I would have learned by reading one gospel at a time. There is something about reading each account side by side that really brings the stories to life, and making Jesus more tangible (at least in my mind). If you want to know more about Jesus, His disciples, and you want to grow closer to the Lord this is a great book to help with all of these things.
The commentary is excellent. For example, did you realize that Jesus began to teach in parables late in His ministry, and only after many people had turned against Him?
One other thing that I really like about this book is that every time an old testament prophecy is fulfilled in the new testament it gives the old testament reference right there in the text. I know that many Bibles note this, but they use superscript marks and it's easy to read over them, so I like the references in the reading, that way I don't miss anything.
An excellent resource for studying the life of Jesus. Jan 4, 1999
This helpful book arranges the four gospels in parallel columns, following the life of Jesus. It is a very helpful resource for anyone desiring to know what Jesus said and did in chronological order. Also, the book provides excellent essays and notes about various interesting and controversial issues involved in studying Jesus' life. It uses the New International Version in the text, making it available to all English readers. I use this book as an important part of the course I teach to ministerial students on the life of Jesus.
