Product Description

In The Jesus I Never Knew, Philip Yancey reveals the real Jesus beyond the stereotypes, offering a new and different perspective on the life of Christ and his work---his teaching, his miracles, his death and resurrection---and ultimately, who he was and why he came. Relating the gospel events to the world we live in today, The Jesus I Never Knew gives a moving and refreshing portrait of the central figure of history.

With a willingness to tackle difficult questions, Yancey looks at the radical words of this itinerant Jewish carpenter and asks whether we are taking him seriously enough in our own day and age. 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; and a Jesus who is brilliant, creative, challenging, fearless, compassionate, unpredictable, and ultimately satisfying.

Publisher's Description

“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” Jesus—or even the Jesus we think we know so well? Philip Yancey offers a new and different perspective on the life of Christ and his work—his teachings, his miracles, his death and resurrection—and 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 don’t do a better job of following him.”

    This review was written for The Jesus I Never Knew.
    Before this book, I was in a dark place. I was losing faith and I have a large problem asking for spiritual advice. So one day I felt called to go to my Wednesday night class, which was moved into a new area for the first time. This room used to be a church library of sorts and ,after talking to the teacher about my struggles, I found this book. This book called to me and ,due to the graciousness of my teacher, I was loaned it. This book was amazing. In the process of losing faith, my biggest concern was whether or not my beliefs were no different from any other person on the planet, but this book reminded me of how amazing the person who my beliefs are founded on was and how much he loved me and everyone else. The author skillfully illustrates our Lord and Savior in a way that few authors have done since the writing of the gospels themselves. When even on a respected website such as this it is easy to see writings that aren't necessarily biblical sound that people jump on almost like a band-wagon and those that are more biblical sound than people give credit to, its amazing to see a work such as this. I would recommend this to any christian who is beginning to lose perspective and those who are have hear that God is just a cold unfeeling old man in the sky because I assure you he is not. God Bless.

    This review was written for The Jesus I Never Knew.
    I'd only heard about Philip Yancey's books over the years, had never read any of them nor been in a study where his book was shared. A friend recently had an experience with Christ and since she was raised in the same faith I was "back in the day," I recalled the confusion about the person of our Savior. Yancey's name came to mind so I ordered this book and it's been the perfect choice. She and I have since found a different denomination to worship with, but we still had assumptions and traditions from childhood that needed to be sorted out - this book does just that and then some. I recommend this for anyone who has felt God is distant, cold, arbitrary, punitive, angry, harsh, or more concerned that we're lost than saved. Using the Bible, Yancey reveals a God of love and tender mercy who weeps over our choice to reject Him as he continues to prove Himself to us. Now that's truth in action, setting us free from the lies and myths of the world.

    I needed to read the book for a class I was taking.

    Little did I know how much it would challenge me

    in my growth. The book opened my eyes to

    the culture around the life and times of Jesus.

    He became more real to me and I had a

    deeper understanding of what it means to

    be a follower of Christ.

    Jesus, on the ground, real, but still heavenly.

    Phil Yancey is serious enough about his faith to seek truth and to look for the impact of Jesus wherever it can be found.
