Vintage Jesus: Timeless Answers to Timely Questionsby Mark Driscoll
Pub. Date: 01/31/2011
Publisher: Crossway Books
Some two thousand years after he walked the earth, Jesus Christ is still a hot topic. And for all the ridiculous, twisted, Da Vinci Code-esque conspiracy theories and lies about Jesus that have permeated popular culture and even the academy over the years, the truth about his character, nature, and work has not changed. So what exactly is the truth about Jesus Christ?
That’s the question the authors of Vintage Jesus seek to answer by breaking it down into a number of sub-questions about Jesus, including Is Jesus the only God? Why did Jesus come to earth? Did Jesus rise from death? Why should we worship Jesus? and others. Nonbelievers and new Christians looking to sit down and delve into the topic of Jesus, asking the toughest, most confounding questions they can think of, will find solid, biblical answers presented in a relevant, accessible way.
This popular-level theology book introduces the person and work of Christ to those who are seeking answers to some of their most basic--and pivotal--questions.

I am so blessed to be the first at a Barnes & Noble e- commerce site to write how awesome and relevant to today's culture this book is. Please, please read this book. Adult youth pastors should read this book. 'Hilarious!' is just a few of the expressions that this book exudes as well. Mark Driscoll is funny, it encourages to understand the heart of God and renews the mind in a detraining culture. This books truly helps the Church in America to wake up and see Jesus Christ for who He really is and what He did for a broken and depraved nation. May God continue to bless the Ministry in which God has called these two ministers for.
