Many Christians are used to the idea of a meek and mild Jesus, the stereotypical “nice guy.” Countering these all too prevalent notions, Mark Galli offers a unique study of seventeen troubling passages from the book of Mark to prove we should be anything but comfortable with Christ. Highlighting the incontrovertible fact of an untamable and often militant Messiah, Galli gives readers a training manual in spiritual growth to awaken sleeping believers and transform them into devoted disciples. Hinging on the compelling nature of the love of God, he explains how this mean and wild Jesus shows us truer love than our pleasant construct ever could. Striking and bold, but always rooted in Scripture, Jesus Mean and Wild will put readers on the road to true discipleship.


From the Back Cover:

God loves you and has a wonderful difficult plan for your life. “Mark writes of a Jesus that is unleashed, untamed, undomesticated, and unpredictable. I want to know this Jesus, though he scares me a little.”–John Ortberg, teaching pastor, Menlo Park Presbyterian Church “In this wonderfully provocative book, Galli recovers a more multifaceted portrait of Jesus, insisting that Jesus’s plan for our lives is demanding and difficult–and in that difficulty we find real love. This is not an easy book to read, because it promises to change you and your relationship with God. And I, for one, am very, very grateful that I read it. I know I will be reading it again.”–Lauren F. Winner, author, Girl Meets God and Real Sex “Galli reads widely, writes winningly, and expounds Jesus convincingly. Finally, a Jesus who was potent enough to cause commotion and even (temporary) chaos.”–Scot McKnight, author, The Jesus Creed and Embracing Grace “Can he say that? Galli’s vigorous presentation of the ‘mean and wild’ aspects of Jesus arises from a justified impatience with a faith too often soggy. ‘Mean and wild’ are in the eye of the beholder, of course, but this volume will help clear our vision to behold a Lord who is anything but tame.”–Frederica Mathewes-Green, author, The Illumined Heart: The Ancient-Christian Path of Transformation
