The Jesus You Can't Ignore by John MacArthur

The Jesus You Can't Ignore: What You Must Learn from the Bold Confrontations of Christ looks at several key sermons Jesus gave during His 3 year ministry on earth. MacArthur examines Jesus' teaching style, audience and the background behind the sermon. The purpose of this book is to point out the major flaw in modern churches of shying away from truth and only embracing Jesus as a messenger of mercy but not justice or holiness. We would rather not offend than tell the Truth of the Gospel. We use one sided attributes of Jesus to justify this approach and in some cases even use false attributes to make Him more appealing.

The first chapter of this book was a little difficult to get into, but was much more interesting once MacArthur began addressing specific scenarios. We appreciated MacArthur's stance on showing the boldness of Christ's teachings, especially in a time when so many shy away from acknowledging the whole character of Christ. This book encourages us to stand up for truth just as our Savior did. There is no room for dialog, no room for alternate paths. We can only be saved through faith in Jesus Christ.

It's frustrating, although we're not surprised, to read of some of the ways the Gospel is being watered down and picked apart. It really is a shame that a lot of Christians are more worried about upsetting other people as opposed to displeasing God.
