Baker desired a book that would help readers study the Gospel accounts in a new way—chronologically and seamlessly—using the God’s Word® translation. By working through a harmony of the Gospels, choosing the stories, creating the helpful cross-reference readings, writing brief introductions to each section, and providing sidebars that give historical and cultural context, we guide the reader through the story of Jesus’ life. The goal was to help the reader go a little deeper, bridging the gap between the biblical text and current application. The book can be used both as a study guide and as a devotional.
