New Release: The Friends and Foes of Jesus

New Release: The Friends and Foes of Jesus

He was loved. He was hated. But he was never ignored.

Throughout history, men and women have asked, “Who is Jesus?” Some called him Lord. Others called him a great prophet.

Still others called him an apostate and nailed him to a cross.

The Jesus we meet in the New Testament is at once both human yet divine, adored yet feared, meek yet all-powerful. This Jesus can’t be summed up by a simple word or phrase, and his impact on world history and on the spiritual lives of believers today can’t be overstated.

Jesus was just as polarizing in his own time as he is now. Some adored him, risking their lives and following him to the cross. Others cursed him with their dying breaths.

In The Friends and Foes of Jesus, you’ll come face to face with Christ’s closest followers as well as his most outspoken rivals. From the High Priest who hated him to the beloved disciple who laid his head on Jesus's breast at the Last Supper, Peter DeHaan gives flesh, blood, and voice to these New Testament characters whose names you’ve read dozens of times but never really met until now.

Peter DeHaan writes about biblical Christianity to confront status quo religion and live a life that matters. He seeks a fresh approach to following Jesus through the lens of Scripture, without the baggage of made-up traditions and meaningless practices.
