This popular-level theology book introduces the person and work of Christ to those who are seeking answers to some of their most basic—and pivotal—religious questions.
Some two thousand years after he walked the earth, Jesus Christ is still a hot topic. And for all the Da Vinci Code-esque conspiracy theories and lies about Jesus that have permeated popular culture and generated controversy within the academy over the years, the truth about his character, nature, and work has not changed. So what exactly is the truth about Jesus Christ?
That’s the question the authors of Vintage Jesus seek to answer by breaking it down into a number of sub-questions about Jesus, including
Nonbelievers and new Christians looking to sit down and delve into the topic of Jesus, asking the toughest, most confounding questions they can think of, will find solid, biblical answers presented in a relevant, accessible way.
“In a society where the Nicene Creed doesn’t hold as much water as a tall Americano, Mark Driscoll and Gerry Breshears take an unabashed stance on biblical theology that comes as a refreshing yet timeless hyssop in response to a Christian sociological breakdown of truth.” — Brandon Ebel, President of Tooth & Nail Records
“Mark Driscoll and Gerry Breshears combine profound understanding of modern culture with weighty Christian doctrine that is faithful to the Bible. It’s written in such an interesting style that it’s hard to put down. I strongly recommend it!” — Wayne Grudem, Research Professor of Bible and Theology, Phoenix Seminary, Phoenix, Arizona
“Wow! This is a powerful book. It’s edgy and, frankly, it made me uncomfortable at certain points… but for the right reasons. We need light, not polish, over the story of Jesus, and that’s exactly what this well-written and provocative work provides. It may make you squirm, but the strong biblical orientation and the crisp historic perspectives give you a context for that squirming!” — Dan Wolgemuth, President of Youth for Christ/USA, Inc.
“This new book by Driscoll, one of the most promising young pastors I’ve met, and his theological partner Gerry Breshears, tells the old, old story in a contemporary, exciting, in-your-face manner. Though written to appeal to today’s younger seekers, nothing of classic Christian theology is omitted. Those of my generation may bridle at some aspects of the book—but it’s good if we do. This book is just what’s needed for us to understand how to reach the postmoderns and a great tool to help all of us connect with young seekers. This is both bold and uncompromising. I can highly recommend it.” — Chuck Colson, Founder, Prison Fellowship
