Read full description of the books:



This is an ingenious harmonization of the four gospels that was originally collated by Johnston Cheney in, I think, the mid-to-late 1970s. I picked up my first copy in paperback up in New York in around 1980 or '81 and have brought it with me and kept it close by ever since, revisiting it often. The overall effect of the book is to be able to read a presentation of the four gospels as if one seamless story, in which all four renderings of the gospel story by Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, all the quotations, all the historical information, etc. is one narrative - like reading a novel. Cheney did a brilliant job and it's my favorite way to read the gospels. Somehow, (under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, I believe), he managed to get everything in, not leaving anything out, with very minimal, if any, editing of the text. Yes, on occasion the content of phrase or sentence appears to repeat, as a redundancy, but because the same events are usually worded somewhat (even drastically) differently by the four different authors, or even left out by one or two authors, this minor effect actually serves to either enhance (fills in more detail) or emphasizes the importance of the event being rendered. Bottom line: highly recommended. The four gospels read as one seamless story and a lot of highlights and nuances jump out at you that may not have been noticed before, when you see the different renderings artfully tucked in side-by-side as one narrative. ***P.S. - I just noticed the provided blurb on this book says it was first published in 1984, which is actually incorrect. The EDITION in the picture with the green cover may have been published then, but Cheney first wrote and published it years earlier. The edition I have has a white cover with four different splashes of colors melding into one, like waterfalls. Inside the flap of MY edition it says it was first published in the 1970s (I do not have the book with me right now - it's at work and used as a devotional, so I can't tell you exactly which year). I bought my copy a few years before 1984 - 1980 or 1981, I think. I just reordered this book (used but in excellent condition) - it's now called "The Greatest Story." It's the same author (Cheney) but I think with a co-author or editor (Ellisen) listed on the byline. It is not super easy to find copies because I don't think it's being published anymore - not sure about that. But there ARE copies available out there - quite cheaply - through Amazon, even if used. Go get it! :)
