Book Review: The Jesus You Can’t Ignore by John MacArthur

When you think of Jesus, do you think of a mild-mannered man who always got along?  If so, John MacArthur wants you to understand Jesus in a different way.  In The Jesus You Can’t Ignore: What You Must Learn from the Bold Confrontations of Christ, MacArthur examines the three year period of time in which Jesus battles with the religious leaders of his day.

This three year period was bracketed by the two times that Jesus cleansed the temple.  In between these events, you will discover that Jesus challenged the actions, teachings and even the thoughts of these leaders.  He challenged everything that made it difficult for people to find right standing with God.

Readers will find the familiar MacArthur writing style.  The basis for all of his arguments are firmly rooted in a careful understanding of the Bible.

The purpose for this book is to provide a call to today’s Christians to follow Jesus in confronting errors of our day that threaten the gospel message.  When people distort the gospel by either adding to it or taking away from it, this is when we should challenge these views.

I highly recommend this book to all who want to grow in their understanding of who Jesus is.  What you think about Jesus will enable you to more clearly look at the religious landscape and make clear distinctions.

What you think about Jesus Christ will thoroughly color how you think about everything else.

–John MacArthur
