Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In 1897, author Charles Monroe Sheldon penned a volume titled In His Steps that went on to become an international bestseller. It is from this book that the popular WWJD (What Would Jesus Do?) movement emerged. MacArthur, bestselling author, pastor of Grace Community Church and president of the Master's College and Seminary, begins with this notion and expands it to ask the question, What did Jesus do? He acknowledges that knowing the mind of Christ can be a challenge, especially when confronting the widespread influence of secularism and irreligion. But he also notes that Jesus encountered the same kinds of challenges. By studying the gospels, a modern pilgrim can get a sense of how Jesus handled similar situations, and extrapolate from his example ways in which we, today, can live. His [Jesus'] style of ministry ought to be the model for ours, the author writes. MacArthur insists that we can engage contemporary culture using the same techniques that Christ used to meet head-on the challenges of his day. (July)

If you read all of the Bible, chapter by chapter, it becomes very clear that Jesus is not the ever gentle, tolerant "He loves you just the way you are" Jesus so often taught by pastors who pick and chose through Scripture to fit their sermons, and as so often is depicted in art. He is a dispenser of tough love when needed, and a scathing critic of hypocrisy and religion used for self-glorification, as most Pharisees did in His time, and as we can find within our own churches today. Yes, He is ALL love, tender and merciful to the broken, repentant sinner, and loves us in spite of our failings, but will tell us shape up in no uncertain terms, if we are willing to listen.

Author John MacArthur has written a timely book with "The Jesus You Can't Ignore," with so many denominations seeming to be scattered in their direction, and many of them with a weak message to their flock. We need the bold Jesus, to guide us and teach us. As MacArthur writes, "Nothing is more thoroughly evil than false religion, and the more false teachers try to cloak themselves in the robes of biblical truth, the more truly Satanic they are."

Chapter 6, "Hard Preaching," surmises how Jesus would be received today, were He preaching in a stadium of "typical twenty-first century evangelicals," and is right on target, and every chapter contains nuggets of truth well worth highlighting and remembering. On page 191, MacArthur writes, "The tenor of His words reminds us that spiritual warfare is just that: a battle. It is a fierce conflict against spiritual lies, damnable erroneous doctrine, and destructive false religion."

What we have going on in Christianity today is nothing new. Thomas Jefferson went through the New Testament with a chainsaw and determined that he found the real Jesus (see The Jefferson Bible on Amazon). Scholars have been searching for the "historical" Jesus for centuries. They have been digging through rubble continuing to look for a Savior who lines up with what they want. This is exactly what Judas did-force Jesus into the mold he thought he should fit. But, as John MacArthur powerfully illustrates, Jesus has been towering in the Scripture all along. The problem is not that He is elusive; it is that we don't like the Jesus we find in the Gospels. We easily accept the wise handling of problems, the love and the sacrifice, but we want to do away with the correction and confrontation. If you have read other recent Christian works, the confrontations of Jesus are rarely present. At least Jefferson openly admitted that he was deleting aspects of the Gospels that he felt did not line up with his view of Jesus. The authors these days are claiming that their lilly-livered savior is the real thing. MacArthur does not care that he is going to be called judgmental or a Pharisee, he takes his call to defend the truth seriously and delivers one of my favorite books of the past decade.

This work is about seeing Jesus' ministry in its entirety. It is specifically about looking at the way Jesus dealt with those that taught or adhered to error. The idea that Jesus accepted all ideas and ways of seeing the world is false and dangerous and MacArthur has made this difficult to refute.

First, he establishes that what is happening in today's world is that instead of pursuing truth, we are pursuing acceptance and harmony. This opens Christians to a deterioration of what we believe.

This is one of the most enlightening and refreshing books on Jesus that I've read in a very long time (other than the Bible, of course). There seems to be an almost overbearing trend within the Christian community that has been steadfastly working to create a new Jesus - one who is always politically correct, is the epitome of pacifism, avoids conflict at all costs, and is just plain "nice." In other words, the milquetoastifcation of Jesus by many evangelicals who appear to be working tirelessly to avoid confronting the subject of evil (because, that simply wouldn't be "nice"). At the same time, these evangelicals have been promoting a Christianity whereby now-taboo topics such as Satan, Hell, sin, conflict, and evil have been stricken from the pulpit out of fear that these might offend potential "customers" (i.e., "new believers") and ruffle the feathers of the latest politically correct special interest groups. Hmmm . . . for some reason, the Purpose-Drivel © Life marketed by Rick Warren of Saddleback Church seems to come to mind . . .

I digress though; the author of this book grabs the current trend to whitewash Jesus' ministry by the horns and takes readers through a wonderful journey of what the Bible really tells us. As shocking as this may be to many Christians, MacArthur cogently elucidates the fact that Jesus was not a pacifist wuss who bent over backwards to avoid confronting evil, rather the author provides indisputable examples from the Bible that demonstrate Jesus went out of his way to stir the pot - and did so in order to let those who were willing to hear His truth. Jesus did not hold "love-ins" or speak gently to those who spoke or promoted evil, rather he initiated direct confrontations with them in order to expose hypocrisy, false prophets, and corruption.
