Vintage Jesus (Mark Driscoll & Gerry Breshears)

I'm only just starting to read Vintage Jesus and it looks good so far. What's striking at first though is the cover design work, which is reflected inside too. I'm no fan of Rob Bell's confusing books but I do like that he's put effort into how they look. Crossway have done well with the design here, and the content looks good too, as I'd expect from Mark Driscoll. Cool plastic dust-jacket gives way to the hardcover which has all the classic images and ideas of who Jesus is. The Amazon pic does not do this justice.
