We all want to know Jesus better, so we read about Him in the Gospels. But in the book Praying the Gospels, we not only learn about Him, but we learn how to talk to Him as we read the Gospels.
The author, Elmer Towns brings a unique perspective to the four Gospels, translating them directly from the Greek and combining them into one continuous whole. He then expands them and infuses color by including information about the authors, the culture and the religious practices of the day. Meticulously researched and written, this reads like the story of the greatest life every lived.
As with his other Praying the Bible books, Towns adds many opportunities to pray as he adds a My Time to Pray page which draws from the key points of the chapter, and uses them to springboard into a specific prayer, relating to what has just been read.
Praying The Gospels is another wonderful book to help God's people grow closer to Him and in Him.
