Book Description

Based on Philip Yancey's Gold Medallion Book of the Year on the life of Christ, this six-session video resource for small groups can help participants experience the Jesus they may never have known. The drama and immediacy of motion pictures are used to compare well- and little-known film portraits of Jesus with the Jesus of the Bible.
In six riveting sessions, you'll obtain fresh, uncluttered perspectives on history's central figure—his radical claims, his challenging teachings, and his effect on others . . . including you. This remarkable experience will spark discussion, interaction, application, and growth. Together, you'll share life-changing discoveries about God, the Bible, and yourselves. Best of all, you'll come face-to-face with the most compelling, creative, challenging, fearless, unpredictable, and ultimately satisfying person anyone can know: Jesus Christ.
The six sessions include: 1. The Jesus We Thought We Knew 2. The Teachings of Jesus 3. The Revolutionary Grace of Jesus 4. The Miracles of Jesus 5. The Death of Jesus 6. The Resurrection, Ascension and Ongoing Presence of Jesus.
The Jesus I Never Knew DVD and Participant’s Guide are available separately.

More About the Author

Author of CBC Book of the Year 2007 - PRAYER - Philip Yancey is one of the most popular and acclaimed religious writers of our day. His searching and refreshingly honest books, which include FINDING GOD IN UNEXPECTED PLACES, SOUL SURVIVOR and PRAYER have encouraged and inspired millions of people around the world.
With a background in journalism, Philip admits that he prefers to ask the questions instead of answer them. This has led him through a path of re-discovering his faith and sharing that, publicly through his writing, in some of the most heart-felt and tried ways imaginable. A true wordsmith, a curator of language, Philip tackles difficult issues with an approach of 'this is what I've wrestled with and how I got through it so perhaps you might find it helpful too' makes his reading incredibly engaging.
Philip admits that he lost his faith in a racist church and made a living out of being a doubter and sceptic. After he came back to his faith, he wrote books about his journey by 'circling the edges' of common issues and eventually moving on to topics like Jesus, grace and most recently prayer. Billy Graham has said that there is no one in the evangelical world whom he admires more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Potential life-changing stuff! 31 July 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I ordered several copies of this with the DVD & personal study book to go along with the book I already have & have been doing this with my church house group. Challenging doesn't come into it! It's an easy to follow format, but takes you to a depth unusually with group studies. (At least, with the ones I've come across before.)We're quite a mixed bunch, from new Christians to those who've been committed toJesus as long as they can remember and from all backgrounds, but this has met us all and helped us to grasp more of God's amazing grace towards us, challenging how this is lived out in our daily lives. For those concerned about the possibility of it giving licence to sin (I've heard this criticism voiced) I can assure you there's clear spelling out about grace being free, not cheap! I'd recommend this to anyone wanting to deepen their relationship with God & 'live it out'!

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent small group resource 28 Feb. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was bought as part of a package. Together with the accompanying DVD and the main text 'The Jesus I Never Knew' this resulted in six excellent small group study sessions for our church-based House Group.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Jesus I Never Knew Participant's Guide 21 Dec. 2009
By Terry Johnson - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Participant's Guide is good. Some questions are excellent and are thought-provoking. The movie clips in the study are a great visual stimulant for thought and discussion. Some of the questions in the guide are less relevant to the material in the book and could be replaced by better questions in my opinion, or at least could be tied in better with the material in the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent group study guide 31 Mar. 2011
By Auntie Chula - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After reading Philip Yancey's book, The Jesus I Never Knew, I was determined to share the contents with members of my church and other friends. I also longed to see the films to which Yancey referred. The Participant's Guide, with 6 lessons, has made it easy to share this message with a Lenten class. There is actually material within for 12 or 18 weeks, but it is possible to focus with 6. Coupled with Yancey's DVD, which does contain clips from the films, the book has provided lively discussion and great learning. It challenges one to go further into the Bible for more personal study.
4.0 out of 5 stars Thought provoking 8 May 2013
By C. Solana - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've done many different Bible studies of various depths. This isn't the most in-depth, but it does lead you to think in very different ways from different perspectives. I think it might be a good introductory study for new Christians. Our study group is diverse in age and background. I never cease to be amazed at the insights and thoughts this study brings out in each of us.

4.0 out of 5 stars Our group is really enjoying this study 12 Mar. 2013

Our group has really been enjoying this study. The book helps us to start the discussions about what we are thinking both of the scripture and the message and movie clips that philip shows on the DVD that this goes with.
