Dr. Peter Kreeft, Catholic author of over 50 books, professor of philosophy, international speaker and master apologetics teacher has written one of the best books I have ever read: Jesus Shock! This book is a stirring call to recognize Jesus not only as the loving lamb, but as the mighty lion (think Aslan in Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis). I have read and re-read this book and always recommend it to friends, Catholic and Protestant alike, who are searching for truth. This is a must read!

Jesus Shock is the second in a series of short works on seminal concerns of the impact that Jesus Christ made in the world. The first work, The Philosophy of Jesus, explored philosophy in light of Jesus, rather than the other way around. The present work investigates the reception Jesus received both in His lifetime and continuously to the present time, not only from His enemies, but from His friends, a reception of shock, astonishment, even disgust.” Jesus-Shock shows the reasons why to this day the name of “Jesus” stirs up controversy, even revulsion, in polite society. In the true spirit of ecumenism, it also points the way toward a true rapprochement among His modern-day disciples.
