On 16 October my book Ordinary Hero: Living the Cross and Resurrection in Everyday Life will be published in the US for the first time from The Good Book Company.
Here’s a three-minute video of me talking about it.
Here’s what some nice people say about it.
Tim Chester is rapidly becoming one of the leading young English- speaking Christian writers. His prolific work has an accessible style which has clarity and is very thought-provoking. This book is no exception. Tim encourages us to live heroic but ordinary lives that are full of the extraordinary hope that comes from believing in the death and resurrection of Jesus. –Adrian Warnock, blogger and author of Raised With Christ: How The Resurrection Changes Everything
Tim Chester brings us to the foot of the cross and challenges us to live our lives from there. In his direct and yet compelling style, Chester writes with real insight and honesty into the struggles of the Christian life and with a vivid hope for its joys. He shows again and again the way in which the cross of Christ not only showers on us the grace of forgiveness but also teaches us how to live. –Dr Michael Jensen, Lecturer in Doctrine, Moore Theological College, Sydney, Australia
This impressive book emphasizes what really matters that the truth of the cross and resurrection is to be lived as well as believed. Tim writes with a simplicity and directness that demonstrate how the cross and resurrection impact every corner of our lives and set us free to live as we should. If you read each chapter slowly and prayerfully, and determine by God s Spirit to follow what the Bible teaches, you will be on track to live a life of true discipleship. –Jonathan Lamb, Langham Partnership
