The New Testament of the Bible begins with four accounts of the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus the Christ. There is great value in having four accounts, since they come from different perspectives to different primary audiences. But to the first-time reader, this can be somewhat confusing. This book is an effort to put the four Gospel accounts together in one, not to replace the scriptures but to introduce them, to show the big picture.

Such a task is not lightly undertaken, however. The exact sequence of events and teachings is often obscure, and though much is known about the context of the writings, disagreements can still pose difficulties. This book makes no claim of infallibility, but rather simply to faithfully present the most influential Person in history.

The First-Read Gospel is a loose paraphrase in modern English, putting great emphasis on readability for the average person.
