Format: Paperback
Unbelievers never tire of alleging contradictions between the Gospels. Yet if one actually takes the time to read the Gospels, it becomes obvious that the discrepancies between them are, in any case, so trivial that they do not undermine the veracity of the accounts in any way. Otherwise, one would have to discard all newspaper accounts for comparable "contradictions" between news accounts. Since the Gospel writers wrote independently, it is inevitable that there are superficial discrepancies between the Gospels. Cheney beautifully shows how the different Gospel accounts flow together once one realizes that the writers "saw" things from different angles, so to speak. Cheney correctly calls this supplementation.

Format: Paperback
Cheney's harmony is a must for the bookshelf of any serious Bible student. This work, which accounts for every word in the original language texts, demonstrates the sequential consistency and compositional integrity of the four Gospel accounts and brings them to life in a special way. What a shame that its out of print!

Format: Paperback
What a masterpiece of arranging and translating. Mr. Cheney took 20 years to finish this project and it's a wonderful way to study the life of Jesus in chronological order with all the details from the gospels blended together. You have to read it to see it's value. It is out of print -- thus the high prices for used copies -- so it's too bad it couldn't be revised to bring the words a little more up to date.
As a student of the Greek and Hebrew I can say it's a very accurate translation though a bit uncontemporary in it's vernacular after 30+ years.
I don't think it was ever published in hard cover. It's paperback is extremely sturdy.
I got my first copy in 1980 at a Goodwill store for $.99!! I've gotten many, many fine books from the thrift shop book racks.

Format: Paperback
I was moved by the chronological rendering of all 4 gospels. With the time lines worked together and the annotations marking the change in gospel accounts, this is a powerful study tool. My deepest regret has been loaning it out and losing track of who had it.

Format: Paperback
There have been any number of so-called "harmonies of the gospels" that have been published over the years, where the author/editor either places all four gospel accounts side-by-side, or (more ambitiously) attempts to weave them into a single account. Some previous attempts include the following:

A Harmony of the Gospels for Historical Study: An Analytical Synopsis of the Four Gospels- 1st Ed.[1894]
A Harmony Of The Gospels (1903) [1903]
A Harmony Of The Synoptic Gospels In Greek (1920)
A Harmony of the Gospels for Students of the Life of Christ: Based on the Broadus Harmony in the Revised Version [1922]
Harmony of the Gospels [1933].
A Harmony of the Gospels [1947]
Davies' Harmony of the Gospels [1976]
Harmony of the Four Gospels, A: The New International Version [1986]

Format: Paperback
This was one of the major books I had to use in a seminary class years ago. It is by far the best of it's kind. Johnston M. Cheney's labor of love is a must have for any pastor and/or serious Bible student. I need another copy as I lent mine out to a fellow pastor. Never got it back. David Burzynski

I sm so sorry this book is out of print. It is truly great and makes the life of Christ most vivid. Every word of all Gospels is included in a fresh translation. I'm using it in my work on the subject: tks.org
