It has been a little while since we've seen a new (and original) book from John MacArthur. There has been a recent volume edited by him and some reprints of his older material, but it has been some time since we've seen a major, new work. The wait ends in July of this year with the release of The Jesus You Can't Ignore: What You Must Learn from the Bold Confrontations of Christ.

Here is the publisher's description:

Meek and mild. Politically correct. A great teacher. These are the popular depictions of Jesus. But they aren't the complete picture. Maybe because it's uncomfortable, or maybe because it's inconvenient, Christians and non-Christians alike are overlooking the fierceness of the Savior, His passionate mission to make the Gospel clear and bring people into the Kingdom of God. A mission that required he sometimes raise his voice and sometimes raise a whip.

In the much-needed message in The Jesus You Can't Ignore, renowned Bible teacher and best-selling author John MacArthur reintroduces the compelling and often unsettling passion of Jesus' ministry. MacArthur points to the picture of the real Jesus the world is so eager to gloss over. And he calls readers to emulate Jesus' commitment to further the kingdom by confronting lies and protecting the truth of God.

So you find yourself at one of life's most important crossroads with an extremely difficult decision to make. Whether you're married and considering divorce, single and considering marriage, or divorced and considering remarriage, you're battling tough questions: Am I doing what's best?

God's Word offers the most comprehensive guide to answering those questions. In The Divorce Dilemma, John MacArthur looks directly to the Bible to dig out the solutions and advice you need.
