Many Christians find reading the Bible to be a difficult and daunting task. “Everyone needs a better understanding of the Word of God,” explains author Ellen Childs’. With this mission in mind, she has penned the “Condensed Book of the New Testament” (published by CrossBooks).

The “Condensed Book of the New Testament” will help readers more fully understand the Bible’s 27 books within the New Testament and the stories they tell. Childs condenses almost every major event into a manageable and easily understood format, with Jesus’ miracles, Jesus’ teaching by parables and other teachings, and His death and resurrection grouped together from all four gospels.

An excerpt from the “Condensed Book of the New Testament”:

“The Spirit and the Bride say, ‘Come!’ Let everyone who hears this say, ‘Come!’ Let everyone who’s thirsty, ‘Come!’ Everyone who wants the ‘Water of Life’ can have it as a free gift.

Jesus, who testifies that these things are true, says, ‘Yes, I’m coming soon.’

Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!”

“My prayer is that this book will convict readers who aren’t Christians, and they will accept Christ as their Lord and Savior,” tells Childs. “I also pray that Christians will have stronger faith as they learn more about the Word of God.”
