It's the beginning of the new year and I'm looking for some new titles to add the stack of devotional books I'll be reading in 2009. If you judge this book by its cover, you may think it's just another harmonization of the gospels divided into 365 daily readings. That was my initial thought before I started paging through the book and came across two short appendices at the end. If you start at the end of this book, you'll find an interesting story behind this story. Johnston Cheney spent twenty three years of his life putting together this unique representation of the gospels. Stanly Ellisen, ThD worked closely with Cheney during the last three years of Cheney's life to bring this work to completion. Their collaborative work was originally published as The Life of Christ in Stereo by Western Seminary in 1969. This work has gone through several more printings under various names with various publishers. This current devotional edition published by Harvest House was compiled by Ed Stewart and published with the assistance of Dr. Robert Meltebeke.

Jesus 365: Experiencing the Four Gospels as One Single Story, as the subtitle indicates, weaves the four gospel accounts together into a single story. While many authors may be selective when putting together this type of harmonization, the authors claim to have given a thorough and complete treatment of the text. During the twenty three years this work was compiled, Cheney and later Ellisen validated the quality of this work using twenty English translations and the Greek text of the United Bible Society of 1966. Another point of interest for the reader is Cheney and Ellisen's conviction that Jesus' earthly ministry covered a period of four years rather than the traditional three.

This is a great book! If you've ever wanted to read the story of the life of Jesus, then this is your book. The four Gospels are skillfully combined into one flowing story and then divided into 365 easy readings with a short commentary after each. This is such a GREAT way to learn about the life of Jesus! Easy to read. Straightforward. No opinions. Simply the scriptures arranged in an accessible manner. Highly recommend this! One of my favorite books!

Format: Paperback
In the second century after Christ, the Diatessaron was a popular Christian book which took the four Gospels and combined them into one single story of Christ. This year, I've been reading a fascinating devotional book based on the same principle, "Jesus 365, A Devotional: Experiencing the Four Gospels as One Single Story" compiled by Ed Stewart (Harvest House). If you've been a Christian long enough, you've probably seen a Harmony of the Gospels. This book, takes that idea of a harmony to another level. The four Gospel accounts are carefully blended into one continuous narrative.

The book is a daily devotional, with 365 separate readings, each with a memorable or devotional quote at the bottom of the page. Each day's reading also includes the Biblical references which are used for that selection. Sprinkled throughout the book are occasional explanations of the editorial decisions made regarding the chronology of this harmony as well as brief descriptions of Jewish feasts, tax collectors and other details about the life and times of Jesus.

The book advocates a unique position on the length of Christ's ministry, opting for a four year ministry rather than the traditional three year view. A detailed defense of a four year ministry is included in the book.

Each day's reading is given a number rather than a date. This makes it easy to just read through as a story rather than only one page a day, like a typical devotional. When reading more than a page at the time, I find myself skipping the devotional thoughts to pay attention more to the Biblical accounts of Christ.

This book certainly shouldn't replace a careful reading of each of the four Gospels. God gave us four accounts of Christ, not one.

This Book Jesus 365 is awesome. I love saying the title because it makes me think of Jesus everyday, all 365 days. Every day it gives you a saying of Jesus or a passage about Jesus and it gives a title above explaining what it's about. For example, the title is given "Light of the World" and this passage is Jesus talking about how he's the light of the world.

I have been reading this along with "The Greatest Words Ever Spoken" to really read and cherish the words of Christ.

Great buy.

This book is the greatest! I study one devotional, sometimes more per day. I love the convenience of having all the gospels listed for quick reference. Just what I was looking for. Kinda wish I had gotten the hardbound.
