Publisher's Summary

Tim Harlow, senior pastor of Parkview Christian Church, helps Christians rediscover the passionate savior of the Bible who is still relevant today.

For years Christians have asked, "What would Jesus do?" But what if we asked a better, more illuminating question: “What made Jesus mad?” 

As much as we love a gentle, sweet image of Jesus, that picture isn’t complete. Jesus got deeply angry at times. That shouldn’t surprise us - but who he was mad at, and why, might. Jesus was most angry with people whose attitudes got in the way of his purpose: to seek and to save the lost, to unite us with God's amazing love. So, when he saw hypocrisy, greed, judging, and lack of mercy coming from the hearts of people who supposedly followed God and as a result pushed people away from him, Jesus went into orbit. Do we feel the same way? 

Whatever the problem - tolerating injustice, shunning sinners, or ignoring the least among us - What Made Jesus Mad? opens our eyes to the issues that most angered Jesus and that should anger Christians as we align our hearts with his and get back to actually following the Savior.

Funny & moving!

This book is surprisingly funny & not what most people would think it is. Harlow makes some surprising claims in this book that will challenge every listener's thinking. Great book & well read by narrator as well!

Heart changing

This book has changed my heart and how I teach youth ministry in this ever during and broken world. John Lennon was so close to having it right when he said, "all we need is love". all we need is jesus and to love like him

Humor and heart

excellent and convicting to the heart (in a good way)!

Tim is hilarious and I think he is showing a side of Jesus that makes a lot of people in the west scared but, the love of God is scary.

Wait! Listen to this befor you leave!

Before giving up on your church read this book or listen to it on Audible! As someone who stopped going to church because of the hypocrisy, heavy handed rules and meaningless traditions, I can say that this book will put it all back in to proper perspective! What Made Jesus Mad is consistent with what has been in my heart since I was young. People are flawed and the church is made up of people. I wish I would have heard this 30 years ago.

If you're an atheist or not sure what to believe, I recommend this book as a way of getting to the heart of what Christianity is all about, in my flawed opinion.

...and this book makes Jesus seem cool!! (and he is!)

The narrator sounds good / does a good job and the story is engaging.
