The Jesus You Can't Ignore by John MacArthur

The Jesus You Can't Ignore is a refreshing new look at Jesus and how he dealt with those who were working against God.   Jesus has, in modern times, been portrayed as "politically correct", meak, passive, and as someone who was about avoiding conflict instead of engaging in it.   This book, however, takes a much different approach and points to a Jesus who was not only a peaceful, gentle savior but also a fierce defender of the faith.  MacArthur wonderfully intertwines gospel and insight to reveal a Jesus that was not afraid to fight for truth.
