I wanted to make the story of Jesus complete and singular.

The gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John all combine to tell the story of Christ, but unfortunately to get a full picture in the Bible one must bounce back and forth between them, hopefully not getting lost in the shuffle.

Author Sterling Redd has recognized this source of confusion and frustration for himself as well as other Christians, so he wrote his new book, “The Reader-Friendly Life of Christ,” in hopes of addressing the problem.

“I wanted to make the story of Jesus not only a complete and singular story,” Redd said. “But I needed it to flow like a novel in order to keep a reader’s attention.”

Dropping the unnecessary duplication, extraneous and overwhelming parts in the New Testament accounts, Redd has created a single linear, flowing, yet purely scriptural and comprehensive account of Jesus’ life and teachings. While the book could never act as a substitute to the Bible itself, it certainly aims to be a reader-friendly companion piece.
