Holman Bible Publishers HCSB Harmony of the Gospels - eBook

Holman CSB Harmony of the Gospels is a standard, four-column synchronized reading of the Gospels based on the work of John A. Broadus and A.T. Robertson. In addition to the harmony itself, articles are included to address issues that arise when one compares the four Gospels and seeks to give a harmonized account of the life and teachings of Jesus. Designed for pastors, lay Bible teachers, professors, and students, this edition also features eight four-color maps that illuminate Christ's life and ministry plus the full text of the four Gospels from the Holman Christian Standard Bible translation.

Great book. I wish I'd had this book when we started our study on the book of John.

CBD's marketing description accurately identifies the content and usefulness of this work. In addition, I found the many footnotes contained accurate and useful explanations, a mini-commentary on gospel events. The 35 essays offer real discussion of various harmonic and gospel issues without being dogmatic or pedantic. I especially appreciated finding competing essays by Hoehner and Polhill on chronology. The 8 maps at the end are useful, but would have been more helpful if numbered and coordinated into the Harmony with footnotes. An independent study of Life of Christ/Harmony can be conducted with this work. The Harmony uses the HCSB version, which communicates as effectively as the NKJV or NIV, although occasionally a word choice by the translators is unexpected and may be disconcerting to some, e.g, "shadowland of death" Matt 4:16.
