Today’s free book is an English translation of Gospel’s Diatessaron, dating from the later half of the Second Century, which is the earliest harmony of the four Gospels. The original Syriac version is lost, so the text we now have has been reconstructed from translations and commentaries. My thanks to Book Aid for providing a copy of this public domain title for digitisation.
