Publisher's Summary

Everyone has their own vision of Jesus - an all-powerful defender of the faith, a wise rabbi, a stained-glass cathedral image, or a soft and fluffy Sunday school flannelboard likeness. But the question of who Jesus really was and what his life was like has fascinated generations of Christians. Best selling author and respected journalist Philip Yancey takes a deeper look at the Christ of the Gospels. From the manger in Bethlehem to the cross in Jerusalem, Yancey reveals a complex character, a disturbing and exhilarating Jesus who aims to transform your life and faith radically. The Jesus I Never Knew is a piercingly honest interpretation of the life and character of Jesus of Nazareth by a writer unafraid to tackle Christianity's most difficult issues in order to enhance our perspective and understanding.

a wonderful human description of Christ

If you are thinking of buying this and have not listened to the unabridged version I would recommend that you did that first.

The first thing I must say is that the quality of the recording is quite poor, although I got used to it after a while, that said it is completely fascinating, the additional 6 hours are well worth listening to.

Too much music

Would you try another book written by Philip Yancey or narrated by Bill Richards?

I cannot listen to this book. Every chapter starts with music which is played over the voice of the reader. I bought an audio book not a music album.

What did you like best about this story?

I do not know I could not use the audiobook to find out.

How could the performance have been better?

No music.
