Some two thousand years after he walked the earth, Jesus Christ is still a controversial figure. While misdirected speculation and lies about Jesus have permeated popular culture and even the academy over the years, the truth about his character, nature, and work has not changed. So what exactly is the truth about Jesus Christ?
That’s the question the authors of Vintage Jesus answer by looking at a number of sub-questions about Jesus, including “Is Jesus the only God?” “Why did Jesus come to earth?” “Did Jesus rise from death?” “Why should we worship Jesus?” and others.
Through Scripture, illustrations, and carefully formed arguments, Driscoll and Breshears present the Jesus Christ of the Bible as the sinless Son of God, at once fully human and fully divine, and our substitutionary atonement.
Nonbelievers and new Christians will find solid, biblical answers to their most honest, difficult questions about Jesus, presented in a relevant and accessible way. Now in paperback.

Pastor Mark’s sermons reach millions of listeners online, and in 2010 Preaching magazine named him one of the 25 most influential pastors of the past 25 years. Pastor Mark and his wife have five children.
Gerry Breshears (PhD, Fuller Theological Seminary) is professor of theology and chairman of the division of biblical and theological studies at Western Seminary. He also serves as an elder and on the preaching team at Grace Community Church in Gresham, Oregon.Review:
"In a society where the Nicene Creed doesn't hold as much water as a tall Americano, Mark Driscoll and Gerry Breshears take an unabashed stance on biblical theology that comes as a refreshing yet timeless hyssop in response to a Christian sociological breakdown of truth."
—Brandon Ebel, President, Tooth & Nail Records
"Mark Driscoll and Gerry Breshears combine profound understanding of modern culture with weighty Christian doctrine that is faithful to the Bible. It's written in such an interesting style that it's hard to put down. I strongly recommend it!"
—Wayne Grudem, Research Professor of Bible and Theology, Phoenix Seminary
"A great book about Jesus-yesterday, today, and forever relevant. The answers provided are right on and meaningful to everyone."
—Allen R. Weiss, President, Worldwide Operations, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts
"This book reveals Mark Driscoll as a highly powerful, colorful, down-to-earth catechist, targeting teens and twenty-somethings with the old, old story told in modern street-cred style. And Professor Breshears ballasts a sometimes lurid but consistently vivid presentation of basic truth about the Lord Jesus Christ."
—J. I. Packer, Board of Governors' Professor of Theology, Regent College; author, Knowing God
"Wow! This is a powerful book. It's edgy and, frankly, it made me uncomfortable at certain points . . . but for the right reasons. We need light, not polish, over the story of Jesus, and that's exactly what this well-written and provocative work provides. It may make you squirm, but the strong biblical orientation and the crisp historic perspectives give you a context for that squirming!"
"This book presents an honest view of Jesus without giving in to the pressure to soften him up. I had to grapple with the real vintage Jesus. This is a Savior worth fighting for."
—Matt Lindland, 2000 Olympic silver medalist in wrestling; top-ranked middleweight mixed martial arts fighter
"This new book by Driscoll, one of the most promising young pastors I've met, and his theological partner Gerry Breshears, tells the old, old story in a contemporary, exciting, in-your-face manner. Though written to appeal to today's younger seekers, nothing of classic Christian theology is omitted. Those of my generation may bridle at some aspects of the book-but it's good if we do. This book is just what's needed for us to understand how to reach the postmoderns and a great tool to help all of us connect with young seekers. This is both bold and uncompromising. I can highly recommend it."
—Charles Colson, founder, Prison Fellowship and the Colson Center for Christian Worldview
"If you think that you already know Jesus, think again. This book will open the eyes of many who have yet to see the radical nature of Jesus' life and teaching. For the spread of the gospel and the advancement of the kingdom, I can only hope many will read this book and embrace Jesus as the true Lord, God, Savior, and King that he is."
—Bruce A. Ware, Professor of Christian Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
