Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author John MacArthur gives readers a fresh look at how Jesus addressed attacks against the truth. Meek and mild. Politically correct. A great teacher. These are the popular depictions of Jesus. But they aren't the complete picture. Maybe because it's uncomfortable, or maybe because it's inconvenient, Christians and non-Christians alike are overlooking the fierceness of the Savior, His passionate mission to make the Gospel clear and bring people into the Kingdom of God. A mission that required he sometimes raise his voice and sometimes raise a whip.
In the much-needed message in The Jesus You Can't Ignore, renowned Bible teacher and best-selling author John MacArthur reintroduces the compelling and often unsettling passion of Jesus' ministry. MacArthur points to the picture of the real Jesus the world is so eager to gloss over. And he calls readers to emulate Jesus' commitment to further the kingdom by confronting lies and protecting the truth of God.

Great point that I never considered before.

Having grown up Roman Catholic before actually becoming a Christian in college, I have a special zeal for witnessing to Roman Catholics. I believe I am simply following scripture when I do not call a priest "Father so and so" and cannot tell you how many times I have been corrected by people who think I'm being disrespectful. You don't even want to get me started on the sacraments, praying to saints, Mary, or transubstantiation! I have also been known to debate the wandering Jehovah's Witness or Mormon that happens upon my front porch. I see now that Christ was far more confrontational than I have ever been and while I do not plan to immediately ramp up my game, I will not be afraid in the future of offending those who distort the truth and, knowingly or unknowingly, entrap others in the lies they believe. My one criticism of this book was that I thought it could have been condensed. It's already short, but it shouldn't have even taken that long to make the point.

Why, oh why was this abridged?

A fantastic book with even better reminders that The best - no, the only - place to get to know Jesus is in the Bible!
