Publisher's Description

Why were sinners so attracted to Jesus yet repelled by the religious? It had everything to do with the heart of Jesus. They sensed that Jesus was for them--not against them. When broken, sinful people feel repelled by Christians, we must assess whether our hearts reveal the heart of God or reflect the heart of the Pharisees. Through this engaging study of Jesus's encounters with imperfect people, combined with real-life stories of ordinary people having Christlike impact, readers will learn how to show unshockable love toward those around them.

    I would have never considered myself a Pharisee before reading this book. Now I am careful not to place my value on a person but see them as a masterpiece the way The Master does.

    This book has changed me in ways I could not have forseen. Before reading this book I saw people as either saved (I smile--You are my kin) or not saved (frown, sadness, frustration, ahrrr). But I am so happy to report, this book has taught me to pray for God to help me see people as Jesus sees them. It's taught me to love on people regardless of where they are with God, just as Jesus does. Because of this book I can now say proudly: I am a reformed Pharisee!...(well, working on it)....This book grabbed my heart and shook it like a rag doll!...I know it sounds strange, and it is hard to explain, but it is as though I needed to be given permission to love those who reject Jesus. Well, this book's done that and much more. I now feel I am free to love without reservations or judgment. Even if you don't see yourself as a Pharisee (I never saw myself as one-EVER), this book will change you from the inside out. A MUST READ!

    "Survey Says...We just conducted a national survey of American Christians based on a study I did comparing the attitudes and actions of Jesus with those of the religious Pharisees. Survey says? 86% of all Christians are more like the Pharisees in either attitude, action, or both. Before you say, "Not me," let me give you a few of the discoveries I explore in Mud and the Masterpiece. Because I'm convinced there are many shades of gray between being Christ-like and subtly Pharisaical." John Burke

    I moved to Miami a little over a year ago to start a ministry for the poor and to plant a church. One startling statistic that we learned was that only 3% of the population in the greater Miami area go to church. That means 97% of the people don't. That statistic resonates every day for us. We keep asking ourselves why. I believe that this book helps to really uncover the reasons why so many don't want to go to church or have anything to do with God, but even better helps to unpack what we can do about it!

    I really believe this book is bringing a message for the church today. A message we desperately need to not just hear, but also to be living out! What I love about this book is it gives us steps to follow and thought provoking questions to answer and ideas on how to live out what we are learning. John has done such an amazing job communicating God's heart for us and others through a candid look at the Life of Jesus in The Gospels. It is a must read for Christians today!
