Crown of Thorns commendations

Here are some commendations for my latest book, Crown of Thorns: Connecting Kingdom and Cross.

This book is an absolute gift for those who want a holistic discipleship that ‘teaches them to obey everything I have commanded you.’ (Matthew 28:20) ~ Daniel Montgomery (Senior Pastor, Sojourn Community Church, Louisville, Kentucky )

…skilfully integrates and weaves together the two dimensions of Cross and Kingdom towards a healthy, scriptural understanding of Christ’s accomplishment. ~ Iver Martin (Principal, Edinburgh Theological Seminary)

…a readable, relevant, important, biblically sharp consideration of the current kingdom vs cross dynamics which decide the foundations on which we end up building our life, ministry and discipleship. ~ Colin Buchanan (Christian Children’s Recording artist and author, Sydney, Australia)

It is hard to imagine a more needed book today than Tim Chester’s Crown of Thorns. ~ Sean Michael Lucas (Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church, Hattiesburg, Mississippi)

… Tim Chester has done a great service in unfolding not just two key biblical themes but how they link and relate, and doing so in a warm and accessible way. The result is a rich and potent picture of Jesus the king who suffered. ~ Graham Beynon (Pastor, Grace Church Cambridge and Director of Independent Ministry Training, Oak Hill College.)
