Overview In this fresh look at Jesus' family, teachings, miracles, death, and resurrection, Yancey helps readers put aside preconceptions and discover a Master who is far "more" than many have ever imagined--more disturbing, more comforting, and infinitely more satisfying.
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.'

SOMETHING EVERY CHRISTIAN SHOULD READ! Mar 29, 2007
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 (:
