4.0 out of 5 stars What being a disciple of Jesus is really about., 5 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Ordinary Hero: Living the Cross and Resurrection (Paperback)
What does it really mean to follow Jesus. Health & wealth? Healing from sickness & pain? Perfect home life and deep, unfailingly fulfilling relationships?

How about following Jesus to the cross, taking up our own and following him in a 'long obedience in the same direction' (to quote another author, empowered by the forgiveness of the cross and the hope of the resurrection?

Christianity comes in many different forms. But only those that have the cross and resurrection of Jesus at their heart are the real deal.

Tim Chester does a good job in Ordinary Heroes to give an clear and readable explanation of what the Bible teaches on discipleship. It has been counter-cultural ever since Jesus taught it. This book is a fresh reminder of that. It is good stuff.

Why only 4 stars? Well nobody's perfect; but I would not know how to improve it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A means of re-focussing on the central power, Christ and His work, for life and ultimate joy., 25 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Ordinary Hero: Living the Cross and Resurrection (Paperback)
Still reading this amazing book. If anyone reading this is not a Christian you may not understand how a book about Christ, a cross and death can be so wonderful, but, this book get to the heart of how much Christ has done for a lost and found sinner, especially a tired world weary one, and re focusses you on the cross, His death, resurrection (yes its true He arose!) the power that gives, and where we will be after death and in eternity once saved by faith. That's for the ordinary everyday person. I look forward to the chapter ... 'the adventure of hope! Don't we just need that?
Hope you find the courage to get this book and read it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Core, 25 July 2011
By 
This review is from: The Ordinary Hero: Living the Cross and Resurrection (Paperback)
This book is deeply biblical. Tim Chester explains what God has done, what this means for us, what the realities of modern life are, and how we should live as a consequence. Jesus said anyone following him was to take up their cross, and He established the pattern of suffering followed by glory. Unlike many weighty theological books, this one brings it home and shows what it means to do this in everyday, ordinary life. 10/10.
