Reading the Gospels without knowing the personality of Jesus is like watching television with the sound turned off. The result is a dry, two dimensional person doing strange, undecipherable things.

In Beautiful Outlaw, John Eldredge removes the religious varnish to help readers discover stunning new insights into the humanity of Jesus. He was accused of breaking the law, keeping bad company, and heavy drinking—of being the devil himself. He was so compelling and dangerous they had to kill him. But others loved him passionately. He had a sense of humor, his generosity was scandalous, his anger made enemies tremble—he was definitely not the Jesus of the stained glass.

In the author’s winsome, narrative approach, he breaks Jesus out of the typical stereotypes. By uncovering the real Jesus, readers are welcomed into the rich emotional life of Christ. Eldredge goes on to show readers how they can experience this Jesus in their lives every day.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Eldredge repeats tales from the Gospels to reveal a leader who was both humorous and confrontational, generous and moody. Eldredge clearly loves his subject, almost chuckling in delight at Jesus’ antics. Readers get an intriguing glimpse of Jesus waiting his turn in line, ‘snorting’ in anger, and artfully outsmarting his enemies...readers will find a three-dimensional Jesus and may find themselves re-reading scripture with an eye on characters’ feelings.” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • Eldredge's trademark passion and personal transparency offer another inspiring challenge that could revolutionize lives as did his Wild at Heart.”

    " This is the most amazing description of Jesus I have ever read. I've led a discussion group twice and have read it three times and I will continue to reread it. As my friend said after our group, "It puts Jesus right here, right now." "

    " This was one of those all-time enlightening books. This moves the character of Jesus beyond that of, "Jesus is love," to the true makeup of His character as both humanity and divinity. It proved, through the various references, His playfulness, fierceness, generosity, humility, etc...and ultimately challenges readers to take on these same characteristics in their lives. "

    " Life-changing, transformative, and a book I'll give over and over again as a gift. "
