His Life: A Complete Story in the Words of the Four Gospels was written by Reverend William Eleazar Barton (1861-1930), Theodore G. Soares and Sydney Strong. Ever since Tatian circa 170 A D people have tried to unite the four gospels into one narrative. This volume was written for everyday people. It is small and was inexpensive making it accessible to almost anyone. The story of Jesus begins "There came a man, sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for witness, that he might bear witness of the light, that all might believe through him. He was not the light, but came that he might bear witness of the light. There was the true light, even the light which lighteth every man, coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and they that were his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he the right to become children of God, even to them that believe on his name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God."
