Jesus in Jeans (October 11, 2009)

In Wm. Paul Young's novel, The Shack, Mack first sees Jesus "wearing jeans covered in wood dust and a plaid shirt, sleeves rolled above the elbows, revealing well muscled forearms. His features were pleasant enough, but he was not particularly handsome....Mack knew instantly that he liked him." What is it about Jesus Christ that drew people to him then, and that draw people to him today? The gospels are profoundly disinterested in Jesus' appearance; but they do suggest that he was great company, that he made God real, and that his life was profoundly human.
