From the Back Cover

Voted Book of the Year Philip Yancey's bestselling book The Jesus I Never Knew peeled away popular stereotypes to present a brilliant and fascinating portrait of Christ. Now individuals and groups can join Yancey in this probing look at Jesus Christ---his teachings, 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 did not find this study guide to be exceptionally helpful for the Sunday School class I am teaching. Few of the questions were relevant and it did not have great conversation starters. I think it's a great idea, but not well executed.

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.

THE JESUS I NEVER KNEW by Philip Yancy
Reviewed by A. C. Gray, PhD
This book came to me as a surprise gift from my brother and sister-in-law. It arrived in my mail just as I was intensely studying Paul's two letters to the Thessalonians. Philip Yancey had informed me earlier in his books about the work and faith of Dr. Paul Brand, co-written with him, about his research and healing ministry of leprosy patients. The titles of those books alone are a Christian witness to the world: Fearfully and Wonderfully Made, and its sequel, In His Image. Brand's miracle working discoveries about leprosy and testimony of his Christian faith made reading him more of a blessing because a personal friend had labored alongside him as a missionary. So I eagerly welcomed Yancey's new perspective on Jesus. On the back cover, I was encouraged more with this quote from Billy Graham: "There is no writer in the evangelical world that I admire and appreciate more." Wow!
The chapter titles in Yancey's new book alone would whet my appetite for each adventure in his research to get to know Jesus better. Jesus Himself, praying in the "real" Lord's prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane would petition the Father, "that they may know You", and Paul, crying in his letter to the Thessalonians, would echo those words for himself: "that I may know Him...and the power of His resurrection!' Part I is entitled "Who He Was"; part II is entitled, "Why He Came"; part III: "What He Left Behind". In all that follows in each chapter of the book, the reader senses Yancey's hungering and thirsting to know Jesus better, and in the process, reading him carefully, finishes the book with a richly rewarding better understanding of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
With only one statement in his book would I take exception.
