Untamed: How the wild side of Jesus frees us to live and love with abandon by Lisa Harper

Untamed: How the Wild Side of Jesus Frees Us to Live and Love with Abandon

Have you met the real Jesus – the One who is wild enough to set you free?  Too many people settle for relating to Jesus merely as a comfortable friend and companion, when what we all need is an untamed Savior: A fearless champion tough enough to conquer our shame and compelling enough for us to follow him without hesitation.
Harper, speaker at Women of Faith conferences, blends storytelling and biblical insights and invites you to engage with The Jesus of the gospels. Harper reminds us that Jesus is so provocative that no one left an encounter with Him unchanged. Pharisees fumed, paralytics turned cartwheels, and pariahs found love and acceptance when they met Him. Come meet the Redeemer who is both safe and strong – learn how the wild side of Jesus frees us to live and love with abandon.
I recommend this book.  At the end of each chapter are questions that are introspective and will lead to dig deeper in the bible passages provided.
