All four gospels, written into one chronological account of the life and mission of Jesus. A great concept from Australian author and primary school teacher Carlee Yardley. Perfect for everyone especially the age group that are too old for 'Bible story books' but not quite ready for the Bible.

Have you ever picked up a Bible and wondered where in the world you should start reading? The gospels are a good place to start, but which one should you choose? Matthew, Mark, Luke or John? You might not know this, but while Luke writes about Mary and the angel and the shepherds in the fields, only Matthew mentions the wise men with their gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. Luke recounts the story of Zacchaeus and the parable of the prodigal son, but if you don't read John you'll miss Nicodemus and the wonder of John 3:16.
This book contains all four gospels, written into one chronological account of the life and mission of Jesus. If you want to know why Jesus made the Pharisees so mad, and why it was so shocking that he would touch a leper and eat with a tax collector, this book is for you. Prepare to meet the King of kings and witness the greatest sacrifice the world has ever known.
From the author:
I began to write this book after Luke 6:46 hit me in the heart one day. Jesus asked the crowd, “Why do you call me Lord, Lord, but not do what I say?” It was one of those catalyst moments as I realised the obvious: How can we do what he says if we don’t know what he says? And what would my life look like if I was seriously following Jesus as a disciple, and not as a self-reliant Westerner? A lot of Christians (including me) take on the name of Christ, but forget to make him Lord of their lives. To be a disciple means to learn from and become like the teacher. So when we say yes to Jesus, the goal is to look less like the world and more like him. The question of my life became this: What does Jesus care about, and what should I care about?
I decided to strip back everything I knew about God and the church, lay out the gospels side by side, and start again from scratch. I listened to hundreds of sermons, read piles of books and commentaries, and met Jesus all over again. In the process this book was born. I hope that as you read it, you will meet Jesus and find out what he cares about and what you should care about if you call yourself a disciple.
