Elmer Towns & Lee Frederickson published "The Bible by Jesus, Let me tell you my story" (2017)
It is a pleasant read and tells the gospel as a first person narrative. It includes an interesting paraphrase of the Lord's prayer that I found myself effortlessly meditating upon, and
thus wished to share. Here is the excerpt (from page 27 of the book):
My Father in heaven, may Your name be holy, in my life on earth, as Your name is holy in heaven. May Your kingdom come, in my life on earth, as Your kingdom rules in heaven. May Your will be done, in my life on earth, as Your will is done in heaven. (This is the part I meditated).
Give me daily bread for this day. And forgive the consequences of my sin, as I forgive the sins of those who hurt me. Do not let me be tempted to do evil, but protect me from the evil one, for You have the ability to answer this prayer. Let Your kingdom rule my life. May You get credit when these prayers are answered.
