Experiencing the Playful, Disruptive, Extravagant Personality of JesusUnknown - 2011
Reading the gospels without knowing the personality of Jesus is like watching television with the sound turned off. The result is a dry, two-dimensional person doing strange, undecipherable things. Without Jesus' tone of voice, what was in his eyes, the lift of an eyebrow, a suppressed smile, we misinterpret a great deal of what we find there. In Beautiful Outlaw, John Eldredge removes the religious varnish to help listeners discover stunning new insights into the humanity of Jesus. He was accused of breaking the law, keeping bad company, heavy drinking-of being the devil himself. He was so compelling and dangerous they had to kill him. But others loved him passionately. He had a sense of humor. His generosity was scandalous. His anger made enemies tremble. He'd say the most outrageous things. He was definitely not the Jesus of the stained glass. By uncovering the real Jesus, listeners are welcomed into the rich emotional life of Christ. All of the remarkable qualities of Jesus burst like fireworks with color and brilliance because of his humanity. Eldredge goes on to show listeners how they can experience this Jesus in their lives every day. This audiobook will quicken listeners' worship, and deepen their intimacy with Jesus.
