The Problem of Jesus
From demons in his house to miracles. From why we all lie to the end of the world. From how to beat temptation to what Heaven, Hell, and the purpose of our lives really are. Author and pastor Mark Clark says that the scandal of Jesus is that he talked about all of these things and what they have to do with us and yet we ignore him. It is time for that to end.
The Problem of Jesus is an exploration of the person and work of Jesus of Nazareth: his parables, his miracles, his controversial call to discipleship, politics, and challenge to love God above everything else in the world, his seemingly insane claim to be God, and what his death and resurrection actually mean if they did in fact happen - and what it all has to do with our lives. Award-winning author Mark Clark engages with ideas from all realms of study - from Malcolm Gladwell and Jordan Peterson to historians, scientists, and philosophers like N.T. Wright, John Polkinghorne, and C.S. Lewis; from Dallas Willard and Nancy Pearcey to Star Wars and James Bond and Pretty Woman - all to present a fresh and compelling portrait of Jesus, the man, the message, and the mission, who forever altered the course of human history.
Every person must make their own decision about Jesus and maybe you have, one way or the other, but we have to make sure we have a clear picture of him first. Do you?
