Item Description...
Popular perception of Jesus Christ is that of a tempered, genteel man who walked the earth, offering nuggets of wisdom to His followers. But what we sometimes fail to recognize is that although Jesus Christ offered a message of forgiveness, He also spoke challenging, demanding words about what being a follower of Christ requires.
In contrast to the superficiality of much modern Christian teaching, Dr. John MacArthur serves up the unvarnished truth of what Christ taught and lived. In simple, compelling terms, he spells out what is required of those who would follow Him. Going beyond Jesus' life to include the crucifixion and resurrection, MacArthur shows readers that Jesus modeled the commitment and loving obedience He requires of us by making the ultimate sacrifice for humankind.

More About John MacArthur

John MacArthur John MacArthur is pastor-teacher of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, as well as author, conference speaker, president of The Master's College and featured teacher with Grace to You, an international radio broadcast. His more than six dozen books have sold millions of copies worldwide and include more than two dozen volumes of The MacArthur New Testament Commentary series.

The son of Jack MacArthur and fifth cousin of U.S. General Douglas MacArthur,[8] John MacArthur attended Bob Jones University before transferring to Los Angeles Pacific College (now Azusa Pacific University). He later obtained his Masters of Divinity from Biola University's Talbot Theological Seminary, in La Mirada, California. He graduated with honors. From 1964 to 1966, he served as an associate pastor at Calvary Bible Church, in Burbank, California and, from 1966 to 1969, as a faculty representative for Talbot Theological Seminary. Then, in 1969, he became the third pastor in the then-short history of the nondenominational Grace Community Church of Sun Valley, California.

His daily radio program, Grace to You, which is now broadcast throughout much of the world, began as an audio recording ministry to provide cassettes of his sermons to listeners. They were first broadcast in Baltimore, Maryland, in 1977.

In 1985, MacArthur became the president of The Master's College (formerly Los Angeles Baptist College), an accredited, four-year, liberal arts Christian college; and, in 1986, he founded The Master's Seminary. MacArthur also received an honorary doctorate from Talbot Theological Seminary[ and an honorary doctorate from Grace Graduate School.

Nearly 43 years after beginning in the pulpit of Grace Community, MacArthur completed one his own life goals of preaching through the entire New Testament on June 5, 2011, at the end of his projected target window, stated the previous January, to finish "some time in the summer."[1] During the same interview, MacArthur projected he would complete his commentary series within another five years, some 35 years after beginning.

MacArthur is married to Patricia and they have four children and fifteen grandchildren. Spanish Bio: John MacArthur, es el pastor-maestro de la Grace Community Church en Sun Valley, California.

The hard truth  Feb 13, 2007
Wonderful book...we are called to stand firm in a God-centered faith in the midst of a self-centered world.
Should have been titled "HARD TO READ"  Jan 17, 2007
The first 75% of this book is so difficult to read that I'm certain the publisher asked the author to pick up the pace for the last few chapters in order to give readers something tangible. I found the first few chapters to introduce the theme that MacArthur considers most Christians to be unsaved and on their way to hell. He then spends most of the book trying to explain why that is the case. In the end, he "makes nice" and ends the book on some positive notes. I found myself wondering why MacArthur believes he is so holy and righteous, while so many other "Christians" are vile sinners, doomed to hell. Yes, I agree with most of his premises, but I found his litmus test for "true believer/false believer" to be offensive. Why is it any of our concern who is a true believer or not? That is between each person and God. We are called to preach the gospel, not to judge people by their WORKS, to determine if they are righteous enough to be called true believers. MacArthur is contradictory in this book about salvation. On the one hand, he believes the Holy Spirit leads people toward salvation, opening their hearts to the gospel message. And yet, he believes that only a few are truly saved and for some reason, he spends a LOT of time describing false if we are to identify them. To what end? To weed them out of the church? I would not recommend this book for a young Christian with a mild exposure to scripture, or you will become very discouraged.
A must buy  Jan 4, 2007
A Superb book. John Macarthur really shatters the notion that Christianity is easy. Backed up with plenty of scripture and personal accounts. Buy and read this book!
Great Expository Presentation  Oct 29, 2006
We may not all agree with Dr. MacArthurs dogmatic presentation of the gospel. But we must all agree that he is a blessing to the body of Christ.

"Hard to Believe" is a great witness to the pure presentation of the gospel. MacArthur has done a fantastic job!
Today the church is plagued with wishy wasy form of a prosperity gospel that is so sanitized it no longer resembles anything found in Scripture.

With this understand Dr. MacArthur, as always, confronts this issue head on by giving a sound, loving, but bold and biblical explanaion of what it truly means to follow Christ.

If you or a loved one feel as if you are sitting in church questioning whatexactly it means to follow Christ, this book is for you!

A must read for every beleiver. It will srengthen your view of Christ's authority, and demolish this culturally induced ideal of what the gospel really is that we suffer from here in the short...READ THIS!!
