Puzzling Paradoxes

How Jesus Gets Our Attention
  • By Albert Lawrence

The paradoxes of Jesus seem like contradictions, and they are. For example, Jesus says that we receive by giving; we find by losing; we rule by serving; we rest by laboring; we live by dying.

However, the surprise is that out of these contradictions a new and profound truth emerges, one which might escape our notice. A British theologian put it this way: "Paradox is truth standing on its head trying to get our attention."

Are you ready to tackle some of Jesus' most puzzling paradoxes? I have chosen ten to examine. Learn in these chapters how to substitute the upside down, back to front, inside out teachings of Jesus for the conventional wisdom of 2015 America. As you do, you will discover that the puzzling words of Jesus contain the secret of turning any life right-side up.
