I need some recommendations for books regarding Jesus. How to know him better, his character, a focus on who he is, etc..
Flavel volume 1 has the best Christ centered sermons.

Looking unto Jesus by Isaac Ambrose

Knowing Christ by Mark Jones

Suffering Savior by Krummacher
A list compiled some time ago -

Puritan books on Jesus Christ:

Thomas Goodwin - The Heart of Christ
John Owen - Glory of Christ (also found in Works volume 1)
Richard Sibbes - A Heavenly Conference, The Bruised Reed, The Love of Christ
John Bunyan - All Loves Excelling
John Wall - None but Christ
Jonathan Edwards - Altogether Lovely
Isaac Ambrose - Looking unto Jesus
Philip Henry - Christ all in all
John Brown (of Wamphray) - Christ the Way, The Truth and The Life
John Flavel - Fountain of Life (found in Works volume 1)
Edward Pearse - The Best Match

Letters of Samuel Rutherford
Ralph Robinson - Christ all in all (out of print)
George Swinnock Works volume 3

More modern books:
BB Warfield - Saviour of the World, Lord of Glory
Robert Letham - Union with Christ, Work of Christ
Dane Ortlund - Gentle and Lowly
Hugh Martin - Christ Victorious, Christ for us
Donald MacLeod - Person of Christ
Mark Jones - Knowing Christ
Oswald Sanders - the Incomparable Christ
The mention of Hugh Martin made me realize that it was his book, "The Shadow of Calvary," I actually had in mind when I made the Leahy recommendation above. It is an amazing book.
I have been told one of the best; though more scholarly works on the subject is Peter Langes, "The Life of the Lord Jesus Christ;" it comes in either 4 or 6 volumes depending on what edition. It can be read for free on Google Books or Archive . org. I own this, but have yet to read it, so I cannot give a personal review.
