Yancey – Jesus I never knew

CELC

Yancey

Personal Author:
Yancey, Philip.
Title:
The Jesus I never knew / Philip Yancey.
Publication info:
New York : Walker and Co., 1996.
Physical description:
386 p. (large print) ; 23 cm.
General Note:
1st Large print ed.
General Note:
Originally published: Grand Rapids, Mich. : Zondervan Pub. House, c1995.
Summary: 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? Does the Jesus of the New Testament compare to the ‘new, rediscovered’ Jesus—or even the Jesus we think we know so well? Yancey offers a new, 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, he 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. This Jesus 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.’
