    Thanks for your interest in this promotion. We have now given away all free copies of Beautiful Outlaw and the promotion has concluded.  We initially thought we'd give away 10,000 free books over the course of a month - but ended up giving away 2 1/2 times that many -  25,000 copies - in just five days. Every book was given - and shipped - free. Our hope is that 25,000 people will soon receive their copy of Beautiful Outlaw and encounter the real Jesus like never before.


    Reading the Gospels without knowing the personality of Jesus is like watching television with the sound turned off. The result is a dry, two dimensional person doing strange, undecipherable things.

    In Beautiful Outlaw, John Eldredge removes the religious varnish to help readers discover stunning new insights into the humanity of Jesus. He was accused of breaking the law, keeping bad company, heavy drinking. Of being the evil himself. He was so compelling and dangerous they had to kill him. But others loved him passsionately. He had a sense of humor. His generosity was scandalous. His anger made enemies tremble. He'd say the most outrageous things. He was definitely not the Jesus of the stained glass.

    In the author's winsome, narrative approach, he breaks Jesus out of the typical stereotypes, just as he set masculinity free in his book, Wild at Heart. By uncovering the real Jesus, readers are welcomed into the rich emotional life of Christ. All of the remarkable qualities of Jesus burst like fireworks with color and brilliance because of his humanity.

    Eldredge goes on to show readers how they can experience this Jesus in their lives every day. This book will quicken readers' worship, and deepen their intimacy with Jesus.

    Revive your church/religious walk

    Review by: Justin
    I love most everything John and Stasi put out. I think it is the thought provoking style John writes with that I am drawn to. This book is no different. I LOVED it! As an Associate Pastor I read it, bought a copy for my Pastor then we bought copies for the church. It will directly confront the spirit of religion found in so many churches today and change the way you think about Jesus. Such a true and inspiring book. I strongly encourage you to read it and as others have said, you will definitely be telling others about it. I give a copy to everyone I can find who is desperately seeking a renewed relationship with Jesus. Get it! (Posted on 1/20/14)


    Review by: Heather
    I loved loved this book so much! It made me see Jesus as a real person. I especially loved getting to know his sense of humor. Thank you so much for opening my eyes and helping me get closer to our Savior! (Posted on 1/20/14)

    Excited about Jesus again

    Review by: Dennis
    I recently heard John speak at the American Association of Christian Counselors. His sensitivity to God made me want to investigate his recent writings. I has read Wild at Heart years ago. When I started reaing Beautiful Outlaw, I immediately saw my own compromise in my walk, keeping Jesus away from me. I'm now excited about what Jesus wants to do through me. (Posted on 10/7/13)

    life-changing! must read!

    Review by: kymomma
    This book introduced my Lord to me in a refreshing way. I didnt realize i was a part of the kitchen-window philosophy until Mr. Eldredge showed me. Christ has used this book to meet me anew and heal old wounds i had carried way too long. (Posted on 7/5/13)

    I never knew

    Review by: Bethy
    I grew up in the church but for some reason the entirety of my faith is based on God the father and the Holy Spirit. Never once in all my encounters with God have I encountered Jesus. I don't even really talk to Him. So convicted! Praying for that landslide. (Posted on 6/24/13)

    A Fresh View of a Wonderful, Awesome Savior

    Review by: Tom
    What a different view of the Person of Christ! I had our local library order this book so that those who may not purchase it would have the opportunity to come face to face with Truth! Great job, John! (Posted on 5/15/13)

    Scandalously comforting and exciting

    Review by: Demyster (J Michael)
    I like and love this outlaw even more now that John Eldredge as revealed Jesus to me in an even more scandalous way. Someone who is not afraid of being who he is and was created to be. John divulged in meaningful and present-time understandable ways that Jesus is my friend, my best friend. He laughs with me, jokes with me, looks me in the eye and stands up for meā€¦even when I have wavered. Then, He even died for me. That is why I like standing up for him. (Posted on 3/21/13)


    Review by: Jaren
    Reading it again, I find new things pop out at me. I was literally brought to tears when seeing the chapter regarding the humanity of Jesus, and that he knows my heart intimately, and he wants me to come with him into his, as well as my own humanity because...he just does! John does a marvelous job at bring Jesus to life. Beautiful! (Posted on 3/1/13)

    My Outlaw

    Review by: Stan
    This is my Jesus, the one I had been reading about in the gospels. The one I had been falling in love with and experiencing. I was losing him in the religious fog.
    Thanks for letting me know I'm not alone in knowing this beautiful outlaw of mine and for helping me to know him even more.

    Recognizing Jesus' personality and personally

    Review by: Jaren
    One of the best books I've ever picked up. I actually saw the Jesus as recorded in the Bible for the first time. It also got me excited to read God's Word! A must read for anyone who is trying to find Jesus in the religious fog of the church. A must read for anyone disgusted with the religious ideals surrounding Jesus, and a must read for anyone who wants to truly fall in love with Jesus! (Posted on 1/18/13)

    Simply Amazing!

    Review by: Jaren
    One of the best books I have ever read. Having read "Wild at Heart", and "Desire" before hand, I expected a life changer, and I was not disappointed. I found myself literally falling in love with Jesus as I never have before. Highly recommended! (Posted on 1/13/13)

    Life Changing

    Review by: fogfog
    This book is a wonderful liberating gift! So freeing, I came away with renewed passion for my Christ, my friend Jesus. Knowing him more tenderly as legalism was stripped away. (Posted on 11/29/12)

    A Life Changing Book!

    Review by: Karen
    As others have previously written, this is a book you will not want to put down and will read over and over again and keep on your bedside table.... you will also want to share it with friends and family. The most important thing is to have a close relationship with Jesus....this book makes you yearn for that. Thank you John for writing such a "beautiful" book. (Posted on 11/18/12)

    Once read, you will talk about it. Promised!

    Review by: jberbuer
    Quote: "Reading the Gospels without knowing the personality of Jesus is like watching television with the sound turned off." I got the book at the December 2011 WIld at Heart event in Colorado, fresh off the press. Once I started reading, I couldn't put it down. My wife knows it by me reading passages to her again and again. Now we review it to use the video for home group gatherings. Thank you, John! (Posted on 10/30/12)

    Must Read!! Great Book

    Review by: Dave
    Didn't know what to expect from this book when I bought it, but as I began to read I was hooked. Beautiful Outlaw brought Jesus into a whole new light for me as I saw many different human sides of His character. Will read it again and again. (Posted on 10/25/12)
