Overview

Jesus Was Loved. Jesus Was Hated. But He Was Never Ignored

Some people think Jesus was easy-going. Hardly. Everything he did and said sparked passionate reaction. He polarized people. Some adored Jesus to the point of dying for him. But those who feared and hated him ended up killing him.

If You’ve Never Looked Deep into Both Perspectives . . . It’s Time You Did

• Discover the surprising things those who loved him did—and how you can do the same

• Dig into those who hated him and avoid their tragic mistakes

• See yourself in each character—the good and the bad—and face some fascinating choices

Plus, at the end of each example, you’ll find a thought-provoking question that will stir you into action.

Will this book challenge you? Yes. Will it make you uncomfortable (in a positive way)? Absolutely. Will it change your life as you look at the people who surrounded Jesus in a way you’ve never seen them before? Without question.

Let the revelations begin.
