Full Product Description
Why were “sinners” so attracted to Jesus yet repelled by the religious? It had everything to do with the heart of Jesus. They sensed that Jesus was for them—not against them. Do the broken people in our lives feel such an attraction to us? Or do we unwittingly repell them by expecting them to clean themselves up a little before we can accept them? In other words, do our hearts reveal the heart of God or subtly reflect the heart of the Pharisees?
Through an engaging study of Jesus’ encounters with imperfect people, combined with real-life stories of ordinary people having Christlike impact, this book will inspire you to love the messy people around you—and the one staring back in the mirror—with Christ’s unshockable love.
“Beneath the surface of every broken person, there is a work of art waiting to be revealed. This book shows us how.”—Mark Batterson, author of The Circle Maker
“I wish all believers loved people who are far from God like John Burke does. Unshockable Love reminds us of our desperate need to join Jesus in the messy work of life-on-life discipleship.”—Ed Stetzer, www.edstetzer.com, author of Subversive Kingdom
“John is a man who not only knows Jesus, but knows that Jesus really saves and redeems broken people and makes them trophies of his grace.”—Alan Hirsch, author, activist, dreamer, www.alanhirsch.org

"This book reveals how Jesus restores us into God's Masterpiece, and in the process helps us restore his Masterpiece in others." - Mark Batterson, author of The Grave Robber.
"I wish all believers loved people who are far from God like John Burke does. Burke captures a unique aspect of a missional life in Christ that we can easily fail to grasp: We can be missional but on the wrong mission. Mud and the Masterpiece reminds us of our desperate need to join Jesus in the messy work of life-on-life discipleship." - Ed Stetzer, author of Subversive Kingdom.
"John is a man who not only knows Jesus, but that Jesus really saves and redeems broken people and makes them trophies of his grace. This book gets into the heart of the ministry that has characterized John's distinctive contribution to the contemporary church--that Jesus is Lord and Savior." - Alan Hirsch, author and activist.
