Publisher's Summary

Walk through the gospel records of the “bold confrontations” of Jesus and discover how to use your newfound knowledge of the person of Jesus to defend the biblical truth of the Christian faith.

Do you have any idea who Jesus really is?

“What you think of Jesus Christ will thoroughly color how you think about everything else,” writes John MacArthur. This is a critical truth in the life of every believer. Your view of Jesus affects the way you view God, the world, and every one of your decisions.

These days, Jesus is often portrayed as a pacifist, a philanthropist, or a docile teacher. He strikes a plastic - and sometimes pathetic - pose in the minds of many. Some prefer the meek and mild Jesus who heals the sick, calms fears, and speaks of peace and goodwill. These things do represent a portion of the Messiah. But tragically, too many have never been exposed to the rest of him. They have never seen a full 360-degree view of the Savior. His boldness in the face of confrontation and why that matters. Until now.

Abridged from his classic best seller The Jesus You Can’t Ignore, Jesus Unleashed takes a revealing walk through the gospel records. Like an investigative journalist on a mission, author and teacher John MacArthur shows you a remarkable and compelling picture of Jesus unleashed.

"He isn't safe. But he's good." - C.S. Lewis

This book pushes back on the postmodern view of Jesus. He was bold and deliberately provocative in confronting false teachers. "What you believe about God is the most important feature of your whole worldview."

Excellent teaching on Christ's ministry

This book is an excellent teaching on the bold proclamations of Christ and how it divided false teaching from truth.

God bless John MacArthur

4 hours of awesome truth backed up by the Word of God and historical records. I am so thankful that I discovered this author who unapologetically speaks truth without fear of what mere man may do to him.

"Safe? ... Who said anything about safe?"

"Safe?" said Mr Beaver ..."Who said anything about safe? 'Course he isn't safe. But he's good. He's the King, I tell you." - C.S. Lewis (The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (Chronicles of Narnia, #1)

It's amazing and wonderful to see an elderly teacher put on the boxing gloves, as it were, and step bravely into the ring of verbal battles as well as written battles, over the truth of Jesus. And for this reader, I've been waiting for this one for 50 years.

About that long ago, I actually attacked an Episcopal Priest after Sunday morning service for having stated from the pulpit that "Jesus is not Lord". And I wasn't even saved.

But just having passed my first decade on the earth, I wasn't a fool either. I knew that sign out in front claimed our church to believe in Christ as the Son of God, the Savior and Lord. To have the leaders of this same place who took money from even someone as young as me to feed their salaries stand there and deny the very Christ they got their whole show from was just too much for me.

The amazing part, looking back, is that when I collected myself, realizing the priest I had pummeled with my little fists had not a word to say, I turned only to see a frozen crowd of church goers, staring at me, like-wise dumbfounded.

I found that to be just beyond toleration. I still find it intolerable. And I'm glad to have such a nice, short and to the point book to pass around to whomever might have ears to hear the Truth, should they have any love for the truth in them.

A new, breathless look at the Savior

Fast paced and founded strongly in scripture, this is a book you will want to read, then re-read. I loved all the instances of when Jesus confronted the religious leaders of His day. Only one - Nicodemas - was met with compassion. Every instance mentioned in the chapters is completely documented with scripture (references are given for each, but do not disrupt the narrative). The reader is wonderful and injects an urgency in the reading, much like Jesus had, setting His face "like a flint" to Jerusalem and the cross. I loved it. And I will read it again soon.
