Jesus Mean and Wild
The Unexpected Love of an Untamable God
God loves you and has a
wonderful difficult plan for your life.
The contemporary church loves to paint Jesus as gentle, meek . . . nice. But in this striking book, Mark Galli introduces us to a different sort of savior--one who often makes other people feel decidedly uncomfortable.
Focusing on Jesus as he is portrayed in Mark's Gospel, Galli unveils the power of Christ in his militancy--an aspect frequently ignored in many churches today. Through biblical episodes, stories of saints--classic and contemporary--personal snapshots, and discussion questions, Galli shows that Christ's deep love for his people is richer and more difficult than we imagine. But it is in this persistent, fearsome, and untamed love that we can find true joy.
