"The Jesus You Can't Ignore" by John MacArthur is a great resource if you want a clear picture of the Jesus of the Bible. He walks you through the Gospels to show how Jesus related to those He encountered. He points out how Jesus stood for truth, not trying to be politically correct, as some do in this day and age.
I'm not sure what I expected from this book. I admit it was a little difficult to get started and for some reason it could not hold my attention at first. But, as I continued on, I did find it very informative. It is a good reference book. MacArthur has shared his views clearly and points to the many scriptures that back it up. He has written a great book dealing with a subject that many Christians are concerned with today.
This is the book to read if you also struggle with the way Christ is being represented today. He is a God of love, this is true. He is gentle. But He is so much more. He spoke TRUTH and He was not worried about offending anyone. He wasn't concerned with tolerance. He was all about His Father's work.
I would recommend this book to anyone who would like to dig in and see what scripture really says about who Jesus is... and how He spoke the truth to those He came to save.
Thanks for reading and God bless!
