This book made me want to read the Gospels with fresh eyes.

**** In the last eighteen months or so, the question of ''who is Jesus' has been on the minds of many. Although this is not actually a new book, it does answer the question to a great extent, stripping away the Hollywood images to reveal the man who could be termed 'a good Jew', and still is the Son of God. Through the lens of the culture into which He came and the affect His life has had since then, Mr Yancy paints a moving portrait. This is not one of his more contraversial books, but it is one of his best. ****

This book has brought me into a closer walk with Jesus. I read it ever so slowly to savor all that Philip Yancey wrote about my Savior. I didn't want it to end. Yancey has written words that sent me back to first century Palestine. I watched Jesus heal the sick, raise the dead and give the Sermon on the Mount. I was there! God Bless you, Mr. Yancey.

I grew up going to church with my family, and knowing a lot about Jesus, but I had never thought about some of the things Mr. Yancey explores in this book. I found his perspective very enlightening. This book is also pleasantly free of church-ese. Mr. Yancey doesn't act like he knows everything there is to know about faith and about Jesus, which is a great relief. This book gently warns me not to keep Jesus in a little 'box,' writing him off as just a wise man or a great thinker (yes, he was both -- but as Mr. Yancey points out, there is much more to Jesus than this). Highly recommended.

Just when one thinks they really know who Jesus is, they realize they weren't taught enough. Phillip Yancey tells us how much he "really" knew about Him too. Only to discuver after reading the Bible and seeing what society shows him is a totally different Jesus the Christ. I really didn't think about how much I really knew about Jesus the Christ until I looked into this book, and I see I could use a little more insight. I grew up knowing one side of Jesus, but when I read the Bible then I discovered there is the other side too.

Being of Jewish decent I am humbled in having Jesus as a huge part of my world. People believe what they want ... I practice Christianity and Judaism and feel the best of both worlds. I love what Yancey states in page 140. He gives examples of the type of people who would impress Him. I was able to relate to one of these people. Because I already did something so similar, by giving to a homeless person. I then watched this woman run across the street into a fast food joint because she mentioned she was hungry. The Lord blesses those who help others. Reading this book will expand our knowledge of what He wants us to do, in our lives ...

Philip is gifted in that he perceives a deeper picture which is also biblical. I have been a Christian for 17 years, but after I have read this book, I felt like I have met Jesus in person afresh. The title of this book is very appropriate -- The Jesus I never knew before. Praise the Lord for the works of Philip.

This book reveals Jesus in several different aspects of life. From having always existed, even before his earthly birth, to his resurrection from the grave into everlasting life.

A wonderful book. A real eye opener. Yancy no doubt will anger some in the right wing with this book. In this Book he lays out the truth. A wonderful read.

Anyone who has questions about who Jesus was and is needs this book. I grew up in a christian church, but always had some doubts and questions I didn't even know how to ask. Philip Yancey phrased all my questions better than I could have and answered most of them. He presents a clear, believable picture of a very human Christ and also the divine Christ and meshes the two with a real, living God. After reading this I have a much clearer idea of who i am and how to be the Christian I want to be. I borrowed this from my church library, but I am going to buy this and all his books so I can refer to them whenever I need help on my journey.
