Item Description...
An old adage says, "God created man in His own image and man has been returning the favor ever since." Philip Yancey realized that despite a lifetime attending Sunday school topped off by a Bible college education, he really had no idea who Jesus was. In fact, he found himself further and further removed from the person of Jesus, distracted instead by flannel-graph figures and intellectual inspection. He determined to use his journalistic talents to approach Jesus, in the context of time, within the framework of history.
In The Jesus I Never Knew, Yancey explores the life of Jesus, as he explains, "'from below,' to grasp as best I can what it must have been like to observe in person the extraordinary events unfolding in Galilee and Judea" as Jesus traveled and taught. Yancey examines three fundamental questions: who Jesus was, why he came, and what he left behind. Step by step, scene by scene, Yancey probes the culture into which Jesus was born and grew to adulthood; his character and mission; his teachings and miracles; his legacy--not just as history has told it, but as he himself intended it to be.

Yancey is not alone in his examination of the "real" Jesus. Publishing today is replete with writers committed to setting the story "straight,quot; joining countless others who, over the past 2,000 years, have determined to discover the truth about Jesus. But where others would deconstruct and discount, Yancey disarms and discloses. We become colleagues with him as he examines the accounts of the life of Jesus. And among the things that we discover is that Jesus himself leaves us few options: either he was who he said he was or he was nuts.

Philip Yancey was awarded the Gold Medallion Christian Book of the Year award for this book in 1996 by the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association. It's not the first, nor the last, award Yancey has won for his writing. But the writing is not necessarily the great gift of this book. Yancey allows the reader to discover, along with him, The Jesus I Never Knew.

Publishers Description
'There is no writer in the evangelical world that I admire and appreciate more.'Billy GrahamPhilip Yancey helps reveal what two thousand years of history covered upWhat 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.'

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Although it was a little dry in the beginning, it got better and better and by the middle was fabulous.
The Jesus I Never Knew  Mar 26, 2007
In all the years I have spent examining my faith and discussing religion with spirit-filled men and women, never have I experienced so much collected wisdom and insight as I have in this one volume. This book is ideal for the thirsty mind in search of direction, inspiration, and a greater understanding of the life and love of Jesus.
The Jesus I need to Know!  Mar 15, 2007
Careful writer, P.Yancey gives the Christian community a volume that represents his own struggles with the true Christ (I am glad he didn't turn to the Jesus Seminar, but rather to the Scriptures). If you are like me, who collects books on Jesus, you would have this one among your collection. Buy it!
Leader's Guide  Jan 5, 2007
I purchased the Leader's Guide for The Jesus I Never Knew so that we would have an additional teacher's guide. At my church, two of us are team-teaching this class. I strongly suggest that anyone planning on using this guide to lead a class centered around the Yancy book use the kit which includes the video. The kit includes this guide.

The guide lends itself well to planning a discussion oriented study of the Yancey book.
The Jesus we all should know!  Dec 23, 2006
What a wonderfully written book. A worthy pursuit in life would be to know God(understament). This book will help you a great deal if that is your desire. Philip Yancey brings invaluable knowledge of Jesus to your frontdoor; now open get door and get the book (:
