Editorial Reviews

Here is a book to treasure and to share. Tim leads us on a journey through some of the Bible’s most precious chapters, for a rediscovery of the Christ who has walked our road, and who goes with us still. The Beauty of the Cross will be a rich blessing to you.
This is a book to savour! Tim Chester has done an exquisite job in walking us gently through the richness of Isaiah’s vision of Jesus Christ, the Servant of the Lord, as he walks to (and through) his death in our place. Beautifully paced, theologically rich and deeply rooted in the real world—take it, read it slowly, and drink in its Christ-saturated truth!
This compelling reflection on Isaiah’s extraordinary portrait of the Servant has a simplicity and directness which will provoke surprise, gratitude and worship. Pastoral and devotional in tone, it illuminates these remarkable chapters through thought-provoking illustration and application which will warm the heart, strengthen faith, and encourage mission. A wonderful resource for spiritual renewal!
Tim brings readers right into the right light of Lent. Christ the Lord. Like the old hymn, Chester’s meditations and expositions from Isaiah invite you to turn your eyes upon Jesus, to look fully at the face of the suffering servant, and see how the things of earth grow dim in the divine wattage of Christ’s glory and grace.
The Beauty of the Cross is a wonderful resource for meaningful reflection on our Lord’s finished work at Calvary. Tim Chester does a fine job of focusing on rich texts in Isaiah 52-53 and then leads the reader to pray, meditate and praise our Great God for his perfect plan of redemption. Poignant quotes from church fathers and others as well as personal illustrations are value-added to this well-organized devotional. It’s a treasure! The Beauty of the Cross will be a great addition to any believer’s library.
The cross of Jesus is the centre of the Christian faith. None of us thrive when we drift far from the foot of the cross. It is there that we discover that God is not like the world thinks he is, that our only hope does not lie in ourselves, and that the hideous instrument of torture, the cross, is actually profoundly beautiful. Tim Chester’s book, "The Beauty of the Cross", will be a great companion and guide as you meditate on the cross of Jesus.
Do yourself a favor and grab a copy before March 6th, so you can savor God's Word in Isaiah 52 and 53 this Lenten season! In a world of distraction, sometimes the best moments are we simply slow down and steep ourselves in a small section of God's Word!
As someone who has rubbished Lent in the past, and then worked for an Anglican rooted publisher (which publishes a number of Lent books each year, and sees it as a significant communications opportunity) I’ve gradually come to appreciate the role of these key notes in the symphony of the traditional church calendar. Thus, I’m glad to see that one of my favourite author/teachers, Tim Chester, has written a Lent book.
