New From Tim Chester: Crown of Thorns: Connecting Kingdom and Cross

Crown of ThornsWithin evangelicalism today it can sometimes seem there are two competing versions of the gospel. There is the gospel of the kingdom with its focus on God’s plan to restore the world. And there is the gospel of the cross with its focus on the offer of forgiveness. These two emphases create contrasting models of discipleship and mission.

In Crown of Thorns Tim Chester shows how these two gospels are really one gospel – the message of the King who establishes justice in a surprising way.

Praise For Crown of Thorns:

“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, London.
