Sometimes what we already "know" about Jesus gets in the way of our really knowing him.
Many depictions of Jesus show him as a character who coolly and calmly floats above the grit and grime of human existence. He doesn't hurt, he doesn't fear, he doesn t laugh and, most tragically, he doesn t love very passionately. He seems not to feel at all. But a closer look at the Bible reveals something surprisingly different.
In this eye-opening spiritual study, Peter Wallace examines Jesus s actions as well as his teachings to uncover a passionate figure who was involved, present, connected, honest and direct with others. Through Wallace s deeply personal insights and compelling examples, you will be encouraged to model this passionate Jesus by building personal authenticity in every area of your own life, particularly in your self-acceptance and self-expression, your relationships with others and, above all, your relationship with God.
