"I can think of no other living educator who better embodies the gospel's tough love combined with its unconditional acceptance of flawed people than Jerram Barrs. In this wonderfully moving account of Jesus' approach to evangelism, Professor Barrs shows us the ways in which the Lord's message penetrates deep into the human heart, uncovering its darkest secrets, while always defending the dignity of its owner."
—William Edgar, Professor of Apologetics, Westminster Theological Seminary
"It is my privilege to have known Jerram Barrs for forty years, first as a student, later as a faculty colleague, always as a friend. In this work, he invites us to follow Jesus' example in seeking the lost, as he himself has done over the course of his life since Jesus found him as a despairing university student. The fruit of those years of evangelistic experience comes to expression here for our benefit as he traces Jesus' interaction in the Gospels with various individuals and groups, as he goes about his business of seeking and saving the lost. Each retelling brims with exegetical insight and existential grasp of what's going on at the time, followed by a section on 'learning from Jesus' that is full of practical wisdom, encouragement, and contemporary challenge. The whole book fairly breathes the Spirit of Christ, which is only to be expected from Jerram (as he is known to one and all) who embodies so well in his own life the example of Jesus."
