Forceful reminder that Jesus is far from only meek and mild. MacArthur uses extensive biblical passages to show that Jesus is more assertive than passive and in fact provokes confrontations with those most opposed to His actual mission -- the religiously comfortable.



Whether this book changes you will depend upon which side of the confrontational horse you fall off on. If you feel safest being passive and use your portrait of Jesus as an excuse, watch out. But if you, as I suspect is the case with MacArthur, relish confrontation and do not feel you are doing your biblical duty unless someone is offended, this book will excuse you from gentleness and compassion.
