Who is Jesus Christ?

You've never met him in person, and you don't know anyone who has. But there is a way to know who he is. How? Jesus Christ-the divine Person revealed in the Bible-has a unique excellence and a spiritual beauty that speaks directly to our souls and says, “Yes, this is truth.” It's like seeing the sun and knowing that it is light, or tasting honey and knowing that it is sweet. The depth and complexity of Jesus shatter our simple mental frameworks. He baffled proud scribes with his wisdom but was understood and loved by children. He calmed a raging storm with a word but would not get himself down from the cross. Look at the Jesus of the Bible. Keep your eyes open, and fill them with the portrait of Jesus in God's Word. Jesus said, “If anyone's will is to do God's will, he will know whether the teaching is from God or whether I am speaking on my own authority.” Ask God for the grace to do his will, and you will see the truth of his Son.

John Piper has written this book in the hope that all will see Jesus for who he really is and will come to enjoy him above all else.

Situation

Despite 200 years of mission work in India by William Carey and others, India continues to be one of the most complex nations in the world. With over 6,000 castesand 33 million gods, Jesus could easily become a simple idol added to the collection of the gods in the temple. However, more and more, India’s population is seeking answers that are only answered through the Word of God and books to help them understand and grow. 

The Dalits (the “Untouchable” caste) are educating vast numbers of their children and villages and it is within these lower castes that freedom in Christ is emerging as a call to personal and spiritual liberty. Today, there is dynamic growth in indigenous mission groups, churches, and Indian Christian leadership. Presenting Jesus—not as just another god—but as the true incarnate Son of God who has brought life, hope, and growth to the national church. (Operation World, pgs. 309-317)
