About The Book
About The Author
As editor-in-chief of Vetil Media Ministry, Nikola has translated and published more than thirty books into Bulgarian, as well as writing some himself. He is passionate for a glorious Church, without spot, wrinkle or any such thing. Nikola’s dynamic preaching pointedly encourages believers to be everything the Lord created them to be. He then encourages his congregations to take responsibility in word and deed toward that end.
As a translator, Nikola has also produced and distributed around the nation nearly 1000 Bulgarian versions of audio and video teachings by famous foreign preachers and teachers.
As part of a charity in Bulgaria, along with other volunteers, Nikola takes care of needy people from the minorities, distributing clothes, food, medicine, and school materials to children.
Nikola is married to Helen, and they have two lovely young-adult daughters, Annie (which means grace) and Mikaela (which means who is like God?). Both are part of Nikola and Helen’s ministry, serving in the area of music.
What makes you feel inspired to write?
Revelations from the Word of God, which are adequate and relevant for the time we are living in, principles and concepts which are timeless and anything that makes my heart jump for joy.
How did you come with the idea for your current story?
Ever since I believed and read for the first time Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, I couldn’t but notice some stories were repeated in more than one Gospel, but each one would use additional details not present in the former one. So, the idea came to me to combine the Gospels chronologically and contextually, so that the fullness of each story is accomplished, without the repetitions and without adding or taking away anything from the Bible text itself.
What is your favorite scene in the book? Why?
The Gospel of Matthew says that Jesus touched the hand of Peter’s mother-in-law, and the fever left her (8:15). In Mark it is written that Jesus took her by the hand, and lifted her up; and immediately the fever left her (1:31). Luke says that Jesus stood over her, and rebuked the fever; and it left her (4:39). The fact that the fever left Peter’s mother-in-law is the same, while each Gospel writer adds a new element to the “process” of her healing and thus, to the whole picture.
In The Four in One Gospel of Jesus this passage would look like this:
“Jesus came, stood over her, rebuked the fever, took her by the hand, and lifted her up; and immediately the fever left her”.
So, we get the complete picture by adding and mixing all the words and details that are unique in each of the four Gospels. When the chronology is applied to the whole story of the life of Jesus, The Four in One Gospel of Jesus emerges.
What is the highest goal that you desire to meet as an author?
The smile, prayers and happiness of satisfied readers of my materials.
Who is the one author that you would love to meet someday and why?
N.T.Wright, because I consider him the most knowledgeable and making sense theologian when it comes to studies of the First Century understanding on the New Testament.
What is in your To Read Pile that you are dying to start or upcoming release you can’t wait for?
C.S. Lewis’ materials, also N.T. Wright and Greg Boyd – anything from these three.
