Everyone has their own version of Jesus--a soft and fluffy Sunday school flannelboard Jesus, a distant stained glass cathedral Christ, an all-powerful defender of the faith, a wise rabbi who never breaks a sweat. But who is Jesus really? Best-selling author and respected journalist Philip Yancey takes a deeper look at the Christ of the Gospels. From the manger in Bethlehem to the cross in Jerusalem, Yancey reveals 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 is a piercingly honest look at the person and the life of Jesus of Nazareth by a writer who is not afraid to tackle the difficult issues of the Christian faith.
