You Can Change: God’s Transforming Power for Our Sinful Behaviour and Negative Emotions, my book on sanctification, Christian growth and pastoral issues is now out from IVP-UK. It was actually out a month a go, but I forgot to post about it.
Here’s what Tim Keller says about it: “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
And here’s what Paul Tripp says about it: “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
Here’s a sample chapter: Chapter Five: What Truths Do You Need To Turn To?
