Description

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.

      • content:

        September 12, 2011
        Bestselling author Eldredge (Wild at Heart), founder of Ransomed Heart Ministries, uses his playful style to uncover the truth about who Jesus really was. With an eyebrow-raising warning about the “poison of religion,” he urges readers to turn from religious power displays and legalism and instead spend time falling in love with the man, Jesus. Eldredge repeats tales from the Gospels to reveal a leader who was both humorous and confrontational, generous and moody. Eldredge clearly loves his subject, almost chuckling in delight at Jesus’ antics. Readers get an intriguing glimpse of Jesus waiting his turn in line, “snorting” in anger, and artfully outsmarting his enemies. On the other hand, many of the themes are recycled (e.g., Jesus is your friend, suffering happens for a reason), and the book lacks opportunities for application and reflection (e.g., study questions). Still, readers will find a three-dimensional Jesus and may find themselves re-reading scripture with an eye on characters’ feelings.
