The Gospel of Jesus
This excellent audiobook, read by Garrison Keillor, is a "harmonization" of the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. That is, the elements described in those gospels are combined here to create a single chronological telling of the story of Jesus. Never before has the story made so much sense to me -- told in this way, elements of the story became clear that had always been a bit mysterious. And Keillor's narration suits the stories well. Something about his slightly wry attitude suits the parables perfectly. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in better exploring and understanding Christianity.
