I gave this book to my husband and each of my three children after reading it myself. After reading Beautiful Outlaw I felt that I had seen the true character and personality of Jesus for the first time. John Eldredge makes Jesus come alive as no one I've read before has been able to do. I can't imagine anyone reading this book and not wanting Jesus to be their best friend. I'm now reading the Bible and looking at the world differently, seeing Jesus more vividly in each and appreciating him so much more. Jesus is more real to me now than ever and someone I want to spend my life getting to know even better.
