The Jesus You Can’t Ignore, by John MacArthur

John MacArthur has a bone to pick…with seeker-sensitive congregations, with Emergent Christians, with believers who emphasize orthopraxy at the expense of orthodoxy.

However, I sense that the author has missed one important point: Jesus’ strongest attacks were against the religious leaders of his day.  The author himself may be railing against the specks in others’ eyes while ignoring the plank in the orthodox church’s eye.

Despite these misgivings, MacArthur’s expositions on Jesus’ hard teachings are compelling and convincing.  If you would like a well-researched, compelling argument against the frequent application of “cultural sensitivity” in Christian circles today, then I highly recommend this book.

[Full disclosure: I received a free review copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.]

    Stumbled upon your review on BookSneeze’s site. I completely agree with you – while there are good points in MacArthur’s book, his convictions slightly blinded him (at least that’s my opinion)…
