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 new work, Mark Galli introduces us to a different sort of saviour - 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, untamed love that we can find true joy.

-Publisher

Many Christians are used to the idea of a meek and mild Jesus, the stereotypical ???nice guy.??? Countering these all too prevalent notions, Mark Galli offers a unique study of seventeen troubling passages from the Gospel of Mark to prove we should be anything but comfortable with Christ. Highlighting the undeniable fact of an untamable and often militant Messiah, Galli gives readers a training manual in spiritual growth to awaken sleeping believers and transform them into devoted disciples. Hinging on the compelling nature of the love of God, he explains how this mean and wild Jesus shows us truer love than our pleasant construct ever could. Striking and bold, always rooted in Scripture, Jesus Mean and Wild will put readers on the road to true discipleship. Now available in trade paper.
