The Jesus I Never Knew (Grand Rapids: Zondervan , 1995)

As Yancey does so well, here he weaves together contemporary observations and historical insights to present a fresh, winsome, compelling picture of Jesus.  No matter how well you feel you know our Savior–or how much you feel you know about Him–I’m sure you will be glad you read this book and will–as I have–return to it again and again.

From the last chapter:

I must admit that Jesus has revised in flesh many of my harsh and unpalatable notions about God. Why am I a Christian? I sometimes ask myself, and to be perfectly honest the reasons reduce to two: (1) the lack of good alternatives, and (2) Jesus. Brilliant, untamed, tender, creative, slippery, irreducible, paradoxically humble–Jesus stands up to scrutiny. He is who I want my God to be.
