The Jesus You Can't Ignore

The Jesus You Can’t Ignore by John MacArthur addresses people’s perception of Jesus Christ. MacArthur makes a valid point that someone’s view of God affects his or her outlook on everything. Unfortunately this point is made over and over, before the book even begins. The book has such a lengthy prologue and introduction that it felt like I had read a couple of chapters before I even got to the first one. Frankly, I got bored of rereading the same basic points reworded every four paragraphs. When I started into the first chapter, I had hopes that this would get better, and it did to an extent. However, I still could not get into the book and gave up. I have tried off and on to restart it for the past six months to no avail. While I think this book could be very good and probably is, I do not have the patience to get into it. From what I did read, it is a very well thought-out book, although a bit wordy. It is great for anyone who needs to reread passages to understand them because MacArthur took the work out of that and says the same basic thing repeatedly.
