Unexplainable Jesus: Rediscovering the God You Thought You Knew by Erica Wiggenhorn

Unexplainable Jesus: Rediscovering the God You Thought You KnewABOUT THE BOOK

When’s the last time you were captivated by Jesus? 

Crowds clamored, women wept in awe, disciples dared to do the impossible—all because of Jesus. Somewhere in the overly familiar we’ve lost our fascination. Whether you’re worn thin, filled with questions, or desperate for more of God, come encounter Unexplainable Jesus. Experience the culture and customs of His day and follow Him into a life unimaginable. This study features:

in-depth study of Luke (40 lessons over 8 weeks)
historical and cultural insights
soul-searching questions
access to extensive online resources


Step into the streets of Jerusalem and encounter the Jewish Rabbi who turned the world upside down. After rediscovering Jesus on the pages of the book of Luke—or maybe discovering Him for the very first time—you’ll see there is no other plan, goal, ambition, or Person worth following but Jesus.

Plus, check out the Unexplainable Jesus DVD, which contains hours of all-new video teaching content from Erica Wiggenhorn.


MY THOUGHTS.....

Unexplainable Jesus: Rediscovering the God You Thought You Knew by Erica Wiggenhorn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am always eager to have the chance to review a devotional or a Bible study guide and I can't begin to describe my appreciation of Unexplainable Jesus, a new 8-week Bible study of the New Testament book Luke. Rediscovering the God You Thought You Knew is the subtitle and author Erica Wiggenhorn shares eight "unexplainable topics" to help us understand the true Jesus. The eight chapters of this book are titled Unexplainable Beginnings, Unexplainable Birth, Unexplainable Introductions, Unexplainable Teaching, An Unexplainable Kingdom, Unexplainable Invitations, Unexplainable Confrontations, and An Unexplainable Rescue and they thoroughly cover the 48 chapters of Luke and part of Acts 1. Each book chapter has scripture for reading, commentary that teaches, and questions to answer. I especially like that the book layout offers space to answer the questions and a place to record my personal thoughts!

When I started this study, I was especially impressed with a section in Week 2, Day 2. It mentioned that Jesus's mother Mary tried to store up all of the memories of Jesus' birth and the events that followed it. I learned that the Greek word syntero means 'treasured up' and I loved this observation from the author. 'Together we will treasure and ponder who this Unexplainable Jesus is and in the midst of a life that often wounds us, may we discover the wonder of all that He is.' This is what I long to do----I want to syntero all of the wonder that He is! And even though I haven't finished this study, I have already learned so much about Jesus the man and Jesus our Savior!

Erica Wiggenhorn has written a wonderful resource and I recommend Unexplainable Jesus: Rediscovering the God You Thought You Knew to anyone wanting to learn more about God, our Heavenly Father, who chose to send His Son as the human man known as Jesus.

I received a complimentary copy from the author and Moody Publishers and this is my honest review.
