About the Book

There are many benefits to New Testament in Poetry. The chapters that cover the life of Jesus are in the first person to give a sense of immediacy. While it is 25 percent of the New Testament length, it retains all parables, sermons, doctrines, travels, prophecies, persons, miracles, and messages. In fact, it could be called the Essential New Testament. It is meant to be a study guide to lead one to read from Matthew to Revelation. Each sonnet (fourteen-line poem) is titled and subtitled to give additional information to the reader and Bible student.
