This unique text is presented exclusively in Scripture verses with verse citations in margin of the quoted scripture for reference purposes
Longwood, FL (Vocus) October 13, 2010
Although the “according to” Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John are complementary, it is challenging to the reader to comprehend the overall narrative as they are not organized by any consecutive line of thought or chronology. Each Gospel has a different emphasis and organization, shaped to be relevant to its own purpose and audience, reflecting the differences of interest and environment. Author Richard Bird’s new Xulon Press release, The Integrated Gospels ($15.99, paperback, 978-1-60957-329-4), consolidates the “according to” Gospels into a cohesive, reader-friendly Gospel, presenting it in a chronologically and thematically consistent text by interweaving and arranging the Scripture verses into a singular continuous narrative, thereby becoming relevant to all readers at all times.
“This unique text is presented exclusively in Scripture verses with verse citations in margin of the quoted scripture for reference purposes,” the author says. “Employing no added commentary or paraphrasing, The Integrated Gospels faithfully preserves the integrity of the Word of God, affording the reader a new and beneficial perspective on ‘The Greatest Story Ever Told.’”
Bird says that this text was done carefully and prayerfully about 10 years ago in the spring of 2000. “It was done as a personal study and references text, but after showing it to friends a couple of years ago, I became encouraged by their enthusiasm over the work to make it available to the wider Christian audience,” he explains.
Xulon Press, a division of Salem Communications, is the world’s largest Christian publisher, with more than 7,300 titles published to date. Retailers may order The Integrated Gospels through Ingram Book Company and/or Spring Arbor Book Distributors. The Integrated Gospels is available online through xulonpress.com/bookstore, amazon.com, and barnesandnoble.com. A signed copy of the book is available from the author through his website, http://www.theintegratedgospels.info.
