About the Author
John MacArthur has served as the pastor-teacher of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, since 1969. His ministry of expository preaching is unparalleled in its breadth and influence. In more than four decades of ministry from the same pulpit, he has preached verse by verse through the entire New Testament (and several key sections of the Old Testament). He is president of the Master’s University and Seminary and can be heard daily on the Grace to You radio broadcast (carried on hundreds of radio stations worldwide). He has authored a number of bestselling books, including Twelve Ordinary Men, and One Perfect Life.

John MacArthur has taken the gospel accounts of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John - as well as some introductory verses from other passages of scripture early on in the book - and put them in chronological order, organized lesson by lesson. The only addition (not to the verses themselves, which are taken from the NKJV) are very helpful study notes at the bottom of each page.
Once you have read the gospels the normal way from start to finish, gospel writer by gospel writer, Matthew to John, the harmony of the gospels becomes an excellent way to see the complete story of the Lord Jesus, from His perfect existence before creation, to His perfect birth and human life, to His ascension to perfect eternal glory. Nothing is left out. I can't recommend this book enough. I plan on ordering more to give away; I highly commend studying the gospels chronologically, and this book makes it simple to do so.
One practical note: This is NOT a complete Bible, it only contains the gospels. If you are looking for a good study Bible, I recommend purchasing a MacArthur Study Bible, which makes a good companion to this (or vice-versa).
The format put me off a little initially. I guess I expected more of a "novel" or narrative. Truthfully, I find the format used much more helpful. By chunking the story into easily read and digested bits, I find myself able to make my own notes, pause and think on what has been written, and to go to other books and my Bible to look up references or amplifying information.
For all of us who desire to reflect Christ in our daily lives, John MacArthur's ONE PERFECT LIFE is a great mirror.
