Yancey Does it Again
Excellent re-evaluation of Jesus' life and work. Made me see Jesus as a whole person.

Religion Busting Revelation
If you know of Jesus from popular cultural mythology, or, even, years of Sunday School be prepared to have your paradigms shifted. Yancey resuscitates the 2D icon of Jesus we all thought we knew, to introduce us to a profile of a living Jesus who can be intimately known.
This is one book I cannot keep on my bookshelf. I keep giving it away! I find fresh insights with every re-reading. This book will become an ageless Christian classic. "Jesus I Never Knew" is that good.

A thought provoking book. Definitely makes one reconsider who they think Jesus is/was without compromising the truth of the Bible. Far from merely the gentle shepherd of the flannel board, the author found the Lord to be more complex, more perfect and infinitely more approachable than he had ever imagined.

I found this book to be as exciting to me as a good mystery novel! Yancey does such a thoughtful study, and presents so many new ways to look at Jesus--how he lived and the real meaning behind what he said,that the result is different by far than what I had heard all my life. I can think of many adjectives to describe this book---thorough, challenging, descriptive,exhaustive, thought-provoking, doubt-destroying, and totally fascinating. I would recommend it to already Christian believers, but especially to skeptics and agnostics!!
