009 - Vintage Jesus

Vintage Jesus was an incredible book. Mark Driscoll makes a book about the defense of a historical Jesus fun to read. His book never drags and offers the readers plenty of insights mingled with laughter. He breaks down the gospel of Mark like no one else ever has or ever will. His words are powerful and cut to the point. He offers the reader two options, either accept Christ as Lord or reject him as nothing.

Driscoll shows a mastery of history and culture as he quotes John Lennon and Augustine as well as countless others from both church history and pop culture. He references atheists, theologians, musicians, poets, nuns, and comedians. However, don't be fooled by the diversity of quotes he pushes the idea that Jesus came to earth as fully God and fully man, he died a sacrificial death so that we can go live forever with Him in heaven. Driscoll may come across as unorthodox in his presentation, but don't be fooled, his theology is superb. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone. To those who are seeking to know more about Jesus to seminary students this book offers plenty and well worth the investment of time and money.
