In BEAUTIFUL OUTLAW, John Eldredge removes the religious varnish to help readers discover stunning new insights into the humanity of Jesus. He was accused of breaking the law, keeping bad company, 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 humour. 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, just as he set masculinity free in his book, Wild at Heart. By uncovering the real Jesus, listeners are welcomed into the rich emotional life of Christ. All of the remarkable qualities of Jesus burst like fireworks with colour and brilliance because of his humanity. Eldredge goes on to show listeners how they can experience this Jesus in their lives every day. This audiobook will quicken readers' worship, and deepen their intimacy with Jesus.
