Ever struggled to understand Matthew, Mark, Luke, & John? Enter to win C. Austin Tucker's new book

 Ever thought the gospels were a bit weighty to wade through? I know I have! Paul's letters, I'm good. Ruth, Esther, Genesis, got it. But mention Mark and I find myself scrambling to remember what happened when and who's talking to whom.
        But for every problem, there is a SOLUTION. :) And C. Austin Tucker, founder of Word Truth Life ministries, goal is to help people understand the Bible. So enter to win C. Austin Tucker's chronological and accessible harmony of the gospels and those hard to understand gospels will start making sense. I intend to start reading it for my devotions.
        Never really read the Bible? This book is a great introduction since the whole focus of the Bible is on Jesus' birth, death, and resurrection as covered in the gospels.

by C. Austin Tucker

“Who do you say that I am?” Jesus asked that question of his disciples in Matthew 16:15 and since that time, the question has been asked throughout the centuries. Is he Messiah, man, or myth? Lord, liar, or lunatic? God, guru, or genie?

Theories abound, and each year documentaries try to discover the “truth.” But the best place to find answers is in the Gospels themselves. God has revealed himself through nature and through history, but the ultimate revelation of himself comes through knowledge of his Son, Jesus Christ.

Each of the four Gospels — Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John — cover Jesus’ time on earth from its own unique perspective. They don’t contradict each other, but provide pieces of Jesus’ life that fit together beautifully to form a complete picture. Not all of the Gospels are in chronological order; therefore we can only guess about the chronology of certain events.

It’s essential to understand that it’s not as important when events occurred, only that they did occur. The Chronological Word Truth Life Bible: Behold the Lamb seeks to provide a possible sequence of events, without omitting any of the information that each Gospel uniquely provides. But it doesn’t presume to be the final authority; it’s only one interpretation among many. It’s not meant to be a replacement for reading and studying the Gospels in full for yourself.

The Chronological Word Truth Life Bible was born of the desire to provide a Bible version that’s easier to read and understand. Although there are many differences in comparison with traditional Bibles, Word Truth Life Ministries is committed to acknowledging the full and complete authority of Scripture, remaining true to its entire message. Therefore, despite its different packaging, unique formatting, and shorter length, none of the Bible’s content is missing.
Here are just a few benefits of The Chronological Word Truth Life Bible:
It’s chronological – Events are placed in the order that they occurred, as far as could be determined.
It’s harmonized – The harmonization feature makes this Bible unique. It means scriptures that provide the same information are merged into one narrative.
It’s shorter – Because of the harmonization feature, all four Gospels can be read in half the time it would normally take, but no information is lost.
It’s uniquely formatted – For example:
  • Chapters and verses have been removed from within the narratives to prevent unnatural breaks in the storyline. However, scripture references are present in the heading of each section for those who prefer them.
  • Scripture references are aligned right instead of left; this makes it easier to read the Bible like a novel, as the headings don’t interfere with or interrupt the reading flow.
  • Tables and bullets are used to break up text, making the information easier to understand.
  • Dialogue is formatted as is common in novels, making it easier to follow the speaker.

Other available books in the series include The Complete Book of Genesis and The Complete Book of Exodus, both available on Amazon’s Kindle. It is the hope that all the books in this series will help you Explore the Word, Embrace the Truth, and Experience Life!

  2. I have actually not read the gospels. I'm not particularly religious, but I do take an interest in such things (hence my interest in this giveaway). I think I would like to in future.
