Description

Jesus is the most famous human being in all of history. But while many people have a basic sketch of Jesus in their minds, comparatively few have taken time to read the four biographies of his life in the New Testament Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.

In Confronting Jesus, Rebecca McLaughlin shares important biblical context to help readers see why the Gospels should be taken seriously as historical documents helps them to explore who Jesus really is.

Features:

- Winsome and Informative: Mixes thorough research with an approachable writing style and cultural references to help readers grasp biblical truths

- Great for Apologetics and Evangelism: Presents the gospel clearly and invites readers to study with a friend

- Accessible: Assuming neither knowledge of the Bible or belief on the part of her readers, McLaughlin provides a clear explanation of the 4 Gospels

- Published in partnership with the Gospel Coalition

J.D. Greear

J.D. Greear is the pastor at The Summit Church

Who is Jesus, really, and why does he matter? That’s the question Rebecca tackles in this insightful exploration of the life of Jesus, using his four authorized biographies—the Gospels. For the last two thousand years, those who have studied Jesus have found him simple enough for a child to understand yet profound enough to confound the philosophers. Whether you’re exploring who Jesus really is for the first time or just want to learn more about the beauty of our Savior, Confronting Jesus is a must read.

Abraham Cho

Assistant Pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York

In a time when the public witness of the church in America has been profoundly damaged due to scandals, divisions, and culture wars, I have encouraged so many of my friends—from non-Christian neighbors to church planters—to return to the simplicity and the power of Jesus. Albert Einstein once admitted that though he wasn’t a believer in Jesus, he was nevertheless ‘enthralled by the luminous figure of the Nazarene.’ There couldn’t be a better time than now for us all to be enthralled by him once more, and I can’t think of a better person to (re)introduce us to the luminous figure of the Nazarene than Rebecca. A beautiful and moving book!

Scott Sauls

Senior pastor of Christ Presbyterian Church in Nashville, Tennessee and author of Befriend and From Weakness to Strength

Among the many books that have been written about Jesus, Confronting Jesus is one of the most carefully written, compelling, and convincing volumes I have seen. What makes it special is how thoughtful and accessible it is, not only to Christians but also to those who have questions or even doubts concerning faith. If you are looking for a resource to help you or a friend encounter and consider Jesus Christ as he really is, look no further. This is that resource.
