5 Stars Out Of 5
Finally A Harmony of the Gospels I Can Follow & Understand!
October 11, 2017
I worked for over 20 years in a brick and mortar bookstore selling both Bibles and Christian books much like the Bibles, books, gifts, jewelry, etc. sold right here on christianbook.com; so, without trying to sound boastful, "I know my wares." That includes many versions of Harmony of the Gospels.
Over the years I've purchased several different versions and types of Harmonies only to find them all helpful up to a certain point. Most became (at least to me) too complicated and thus confusing and I could never wholeheartedly recommend one to a customer or friend...until now!
George W. Knight's "A Simplified Harmony of the Gospels" using the text of the HCSB (Holman Christian Standard Bible), is exactly as the title states, SIMPLE. However, simple by no means implies watered-down or less-than. Its simply written with laypeople like myself in mind in a flowing "story-like" fashion so that all 4 Gospels become one continuous story.
There's also limited study notes, Side Bar explanations, an Expanded Outline, A Systematic Reading Plan, Scripture Indices, Subject Index and last and very important to me the text itself from the HCSB (in a large text format). So in the end I now own a user friendly, Christ-centered, trustworthy, Bible Study tool in a favorite translation, what's not to be happy about?
