Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Philip Yancey serves as editor at Large for Christianity Today magazine. His books The Jesus I Never Knew and What's So Amazing About Grace? were national best-sellers appearing on both the Publisher's Weekly and ECPA lists. Both books also won the Gold Medallion Book of the Year Award. Yancey has written eight Gold Medallion Award-winning books, including Where Is God When it Hurts? Disappointment with God, and The Gift of Pain. He co-edited The Student Bible, which also won a Gold Medallion Award. He and his wife live in Colorado.

From the Back Cover

Critically acclaimed as the most significant Christian book of the last ten years, The Jesus I Never Knew was selected for the prestigious Gold Medallion Christian Book of the Year Award in 1996. In it, best-selling author Philip Yancey peeled away popular stereotypes to present a brilliant and challenging portrait of Christ. Now individuals and groups can join Yancey in this probing look at Jesus Christ - his teaching, his miracles, his death and resurrection, and ultimately, who he was and why he came. This study guide helps readers press beyond the traditional picture to uncover a Jesus who is brilliant, creative, challenging, fearless, compassionate, unpredictable, and ultimately satisfying. Each chapter begins with Yancey’s reflections on rediscovering Jesus. Questions that stimulate journaling follow, with note-writing sections that assist the reader in - Seeing Jesus Through Scripture - Looking at Jesus Within and Without - Being Seen by Jesus - Further Glimpses of Jesus - Gazing on Jesus This Week -- Also included are Yancey’s suggestions for viewing Hollywood films on Jesus, with optional directions about film usage in studying The Jesus I Never Knew.

All my preconceptions of who Jesus is was changed by this book.
Bernadette J. Reed
I am a voracious reader but it takes me twice as long to read a Phillip Yancey book because I stop to muse on what he has written.
Urban B. Turner
The study guide is an excellent resource for anyone facilitating small group discussion on Yancey's book.

Format: Paperback
This is a "sign post" book that forces you stop and evaluate your perspective of Jesus, His life and teaching. Yancey is a wordsmith with a style that is both honest, probative, and enlightening. This is a revitalizing must-read for Christians, especially those wishing to enhance their accompanying biblical examination, but meaningful for non-believers as well. Like all books of this genre, its pages should be evaluated through the framework of scripture, but I see no conflict here. What I find is a refreshing examination of Christ which broadens rather that disorients one's understanding and relationship with Him. One thing is for certain: you'll get your money's worth from this literary treasure chest as it merits reading, rereading, underscoring, and lending out - just make sure that your friends return it.

The study guide is an excellent resource for anyone facilitating small group discussion on Yancey's book. The suggestions for how to enhance the discussion are doable, and a variety of options are presented. The study guide is well worth the price.

Format: Paperback
A great book to cut through all the ideas of one group or church. It is above all the preconceptions of Jesus, and presents a person that is very mesterious and difficult to pigeon hole. A great book for anyone upset with the state of the christian church or christianity as a whole. It ponders questions like why christians are so condesending of those who are in most need of help. Again, a must read for all.

I have spent a fairly large part of a long life in Sunday School,

church,Bible Classes, college courses, and daily reading of the Bible and myriad magazine, tracts etc. But never have I experienced a deeper mind shaking treatise on faith and understanding of what Jesus was doing and intended while he taught his disciples and listeners/observers during his time on earth as described in the 4 gospels. My understanding of passages I never could comprehend before is wonderfully satisfying and truly exhilerating. I haven't stopped thinking about it, and doubt I ever will.

This small study guide provided great discussion questions as well as chapter summaries. it also included recommended uses for the movies that Yancey used in his original study of Jesus, as well as, the time cues so you don't have to spend hours scanning the movies for the necessary clip. If you are teaching through this book and want to integrate the video clips and group discussion, then I'd strongly recommend getting this study guide.

I didn't read closely enough or was confused but I was actually looking for the workbook that goes with the video series. I am going to keep this study guide since it has a lot of good information that goes with the book (which we also have). Love the book and the video series. This study guide just enhances the learning.

Format: Paperback
To start I am using the study guide on my own, not in a group setting. I LOVE the book, "The Jesus I Never Knew" but I found the study guide boring. The book is very deep and thought provoking... sometimes i would stop mid chapter just to sit with something I had read so I could take it in... wanting to be sure that I would not forget it. Our God is taking me to a deeper level with Him by learning more about Him through His son Jesus and He brought me to the book. Thinking the study guide would guide me deeper into each chapter I bought it as well. But instead I found the study guide surface deep. It seemed to me that its to help facilitate a group setting to open up with each other. The video suggestions are a wonderful addition and I think a fantastic idea for a group or individual but I don't have the time nor the resources to use them. I guess this book does help people open up so for that I cant discourage but for an individual it did not work for me. I gave it two stars because contrary to the beauty and depth of the book I found the study guide to be quite the opposite.
