Thirty-five chapters expounding on the character of Christ. Christians and Non-Christians alike become numb to exactly how unique and exceptional the Cbrist of the Gospels is. Whether you’re a believer or not, I think this book would be useful as it examines Christ from various angles sannders the major theme being that Christ was so unlike any other person of history that he truly oncomparable be thought of as ‘incomparable’.

The Incomparable Christ: The Person and Work of Jesus Christ
This book could bring doubters to a saving faith in Christ. We just finished this book in the men’s discipleship group that I lead. One quote sticks in my head – “Jesus drank the cup of wrath without mercy so that we might drink the cup of mercy without wrath. Dec 15, Rafael Monchez rated it it was amazing.
This book is a great devotional read for the days leading up to Easter Sunday.
You will like it much more if you are especially fond of poetry. I love the way Sander’s writes, he has a specialty in vocabulary and choice words. He is able to bring mind-bending Theological concepts and explain it simply in a devotional language, simple yet precise. Why did the only one who could have chose His earthly vocation without any restriction choose to become a carpenter?
It is not difficult to conceive the wonder and consternation of the angelic host to see the great Jehova, Creator of the rolling spheres, humble Himself to toil with saw and hammer at a carpenter’s bench for eighteen years; to see Him who made the heavens and “meted them out with a span” stoop to shape with His own hands a yoke for oxen.
Here we see the Teacher joyously partaking in the life of a worker, a skilled laborer, his hands dirty, his body dusty, his head sweaty. This image impacted me personally as I went through a phase of an occupational change; from dressing neat and clean in an office environment to putting on safety gear and carrying tools for construction.
I felt my hands turn harder and harder, my body change it’s form. At times, working from sun-up to sun-down along with my fellow workers. I often wondered why God willed it that I go through this change, not that I am ashamed of it. Our Lord Jesus exemplified the nobility of Labor. Our Lord in His divine wisdom and complete trust in God recognized these years of physical work to be his preparation, his training, for a coming day where He would stagger under the weight of His own cross. This is a great lesson for the children of God for in whatever occupation you fill your time with, there is a lesson that our Lord is teaching us, sometimes, we just don’t see it at the moment.
In the same chapter about Jesus as a carpenter, we read a beautiful poem. Each chapter contains several poems and lines of poetry. This one was my favorite: Workman’s bench and simple tools Line the walls — chests and stools,Yoke of ox, and shaft of plough, Finished by the Carpenter, Lie about the pavement now.
But His hands — Let the light play on them; Marks of toil lay on them Faint with passion and with care, Every old scar showing there Where a tool slipped and hurt; Show each callous; be alert for each deep line of toil.
Show the soil of the pitch; and the strength grips of helve give at length. Doubt that He Meets me full in sympathy? I reach out, gripping Thee, Son of man, close to me, Close and fast, fearlessly.
Mar 22, Ed rated it really liked it. Every time I read J.
Oswald Sanders, I thoroughly enjoy what I learn. This is a tremendous book on the Person and Work of Christ. The only problem I find with the book is that there is no Scriptural or Topical Index included. For me to refer incopmarable this book in inxomparable future, I have no way of finding the material I once read without completely reading it again. This is why I gave it only 4 stars.
Feb 18, Tammy rated it it was amazing. Reading this for Lent. Apr 04, Brenda Huntsman rated it it was amazing. Focus and emphasis was on Christ and Christ alone.

Learned some things as well are realizing some stuff I didn’t put together before. There are 36 chapters in this book. I am reading it for lent. What an amazing Savior we have! Aug 09, Anjanette rated it really liked it. Intimate look at who Jesus is. Powerful and intense book that led me to see Jesus more fully. Thought provoking, encouraging; wonderful read for Lent.
This book is difficult to nail down because it is both wonderfully instructive and oddly incomparabl. Sanders gives power teaching on the importance of Christ’s sinless nature I didn’t see His infomparable as miraculous as the Virgin birth, but it is.
His teaching on the hypostatic union is clear and understandable. I think the best chapters are those on the humanity and deity of Christ.
There is a quote by Chrysostom on Christ’s twofold nature that is worth its weight in gold. Yet he warns aga This book is difficult to nail down because it is both wonderfully instructive and oddly speculative. Yet he warns against speculation regarding Christ and fails to heed his own warning.
Sanders speaks of Christ’s appearance that is pure guesswork. His teaching on Jesus’ childhood is not Biblical. He may be right but it’s not based on Scripture. He also uses an illustration on a rejected cornerstone of Solomon’s temple that is a fairytale.
This book has amazing highs that outweigh the low points. Like any book on Christ, read with discernment. Sanders writes with a spiritual fervor that leads the reader to undervalue his excellent exegesis.
The result is a wonderful blend of scholarly insight with strong applications for the believer.
