Perhaps it is best to start by saying what this isn't. It isn't a paraphrase. It isn't a Bible study. It isn't a new translation.
So what is it? Simply stated, this is the Gospel, as one story, with no repetition. Nothing has been added, and nothing has been taken out. It has been created to help people understand the message of Jesus as efficiently as possible.
This is essential in a time when people communicate in tweets and texts. In a world where people communicate in 140 characters at a time, people simply don't have time to read all four Gospels. Even if they took the time to read one, they will miss important parts, as there are stories that aren't in all of them. This rendition solves that problem by putting everything in one place.
The Condensed Gospel is also important in a time where the message of Jesus has gotten muddled up with the words of others to the point where people aren't even following Jesus anymore. Now, more than ever, we need to hear the words of Jesus clearly.
