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.

What made the experience of listening to The Jesus I Never Knew the most enjoyable?

Over the years I have enjoyed reading or listening to this book countless times. Mr. Yancey's insights into Jesus' life are fascinating.

What does Bill Richards bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Bill Richards is my faovrite reader. I could listen to him speak hours on end without ever growing weary of his soothing voice.

Any additional comments?

I recommend this book to anyone wanting a more meaningful answer to Jesus' own question, "Who do you say I am"
