The Jesus I Never Knew
The Jesus I Never Knew | Philip Yancey
2 posts | 12 read | 3 to read
There is no writer in the evangelical world that I admire and appreciate more. Billy Graham Philip Yancey helps reveal what two thousand years of history covered up What happens when a respected Christian journalist decides to put his preconceptions aside and take a long look at the Jesus described in the Gospels? How does the Jesus of the New Testament compare to the new, rediscovered Jesusor even the Jesus we think we know so well? Philip Yancey offers a new and different perspective on the life of Christ and his workhis teachings, his miracles, his death and resurrectionand ultimately, who he was and why he came. From the manger in Bethlehem to the cross in Jerusalem, Yancey presents a complex character who generates questions as well as answers; a disturbing and exhilarating Jesus who wants to radically transform your life and stretch your faith. The Jesus I Never Knew uncovers a Jesus who is brilliant, creative, challenging, fearless, compassionate, unpredictable, and ultimately satisfying. No one who meets Jesus ever stays the same, says Yancey. Jesus has rocked my own preconceptions and has made me ask hard questions about why those of us who bear his name dont do a better job of following him.

Prompt: Jesus Christ Superstar

Klou This sounds like it would make for an interesting read. And this author's name sounds familiar but I can't think why. 10mo
TheSpineView @Klou I thought the same thing. 10mo
Klou @TheSpineView I've had a look through his books on Goodreads and don't recognise any of them. I wonder what it could be. 10mo
TheSpineView @Klou If I think of it I will let you know. 10mo
Klou @TheSpineView thank you. Same here. 10mo
