You Can Change – commendations

The cover of Tim Chester, You Can Change (June, 2008)Here are some of the commendations for You Can Change which is due out from IVP (UK) on 20 June 2008.

A book about Christian growth that is neither quietistic nor moralistic is rare. A book that is truly practical is even rarer. Tim Chester’s new volume falls into both categories and therefore fills a gap.
Tim Keller, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City

There are few books that are shockingly honest, carefully theological, and gloriously hopeful all at the same time. Tim Chester’s book, You Can Change, is all of these and more. He skilfully uses the deepest insights of the theology of the Word as a lens to help you understand yourself and the way of change, and, in so doing, helps you to experience practically what you thought you already knew. The carefully crafted personal ‘reflection’ and ‘change project’ sections are worth the price of the book by themselves. It is wonderful to be reminded that you and I are not stuck, and it’s comforting to be guided by someone who knows well the road from where we are to where we need to be.
Paul Tripp, President of Paul Tripp Ministries

A wonderful book for those who are serious about personal change. For so many Christians the gulf between our aspirations and the reality of our daily Christian walk is very large. Here is very helpful material to help us bridge this gap and become the whole people God intended us to be.
Stephen Gaukroger, Senior Minister at Gold Hill Baptist Church

We are called to be salt and light. Yet often the church fails to live differently. In our busy culture, we rarely spend time dealing with sinful areas of our lives; instead we try to sweep them under the carpet. Tim’s book is a biblical and practical challenge to the very root causes of ungodly patterns of behaviour. Read it and allow God to change you!
Andy Frost, Director, Share Jesus International

  1. Hi Jonathan. The book is published in the UK on 20 June. There are no plans as yet for publication in the States. (The book I co-wrote with Steve Timmis, Total Church, is coming out for Crossway in September ’08). It is being advertised at so they may sell in the States. It’s also being advertised in the UK at and Though it’s not advertised there yet, my recommended source in the UK is The Good Book Company – partly because I write a lot for them and I’m a friend of the manager director, but also because their shipping rates and service are good.
