Award- winning author Philip Yancey strips away the stereotypes and cosy images surrounding the person of Jesus to reveal the powerful and enigmatic reality of the man who changed history.
Images of Jesus – the sweet Christmas card baby, the serene figure with a halo, the predictable flannel-graph cut-out of Sunday school – have often obscured the real flesh and blood person behind the myth. Using the Gospel accounts and historical research of first century Palestine, Philip Yancey reveals Jesus as full of emotion and passion, who shocked and scandalised many of his contemporaries, and whose words and actions cut across all conventions. Jesus is truly unique and disturbing – both to his own age and to our own. This fascinating exploration will challenge those without faith to believe, and those with faith, to face the truth.

In 'The Jesus I Never Knew' award-winning author Philip Yancey strips away the stereotyped images to reveal the powerful and astonishing reality of Jesus.
The picture-book Jesus floats through the well-known Gospel stories complete with halo and serene smile. Nothing troubles him. But he doesn't cut much ice with the modern world. Philip Yancey explores the real flesh and blood Jesus behind the myth – the man who shocked and scandalised his contemporaries and refused to fit their preconceptions.
Here is a fascinating voyage of discovery that will change your relationship with the man who changed history.
"Yancey's flair for honest, vivid, well-informed down-to-earthness gives piercing power to these reflections on the Gospel facts about Jesus Christ."
James I Packer
