Resource Review: Outlaw by John Eldredge

In Beautiful Outlaw, John Eldredge removes the religious varnish to help readers discover stunning new insights into the personality of    Jesus. Jesus was accused of breaking the law, keeping bad company and heavy drinking. Of being the devil himself. He was so compelling and dangerous they had to kill him. But others loved him passionately. He had a sense of humor. His generosity was scandalous. His anger made enemies tremble. He'd say the most outrageous things. He was definitely not the Jesus of the stained glass.
     In the author's winsome, narrative approach, he breaks Jesus out of the typical stereotypes. By uncovering the real Jesus, readers are welcomed into the rich emotional life of Christ. Eldredge goes on to show readers how they can experience this Jesus in their lives every day.
Beautiful Outlaw will quicken readers' worship, and deepen their intimacy with our incomparable Lord and Savior.
