Product Description

In Crown of Thorns, Tim Chester lays out two perspectives that are at work among the evangelical movement today. One, places emphasis on the gospel and God's plan to restore the world. The other, emphasizes the cross of Christ and the offer of forgiveness. While these two perspectives may seem to contrast each other, Chester shows how these two gospels are really one and the same.

Publisher's Description

Within 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.

Author Bio

Editorial Reviews

Is the gospel about the coming of the kingdom of God and its implications for social justice in this world? Or does it centre on the cross, dealing only with personal salvation and the need for forgiveness? ... Chester employs clear exegesis of biblical passages to help build his case, particularly from Mark's Gospel. He writes in a lively style and has produced a helpful little book. It will be particularly useful for young believers and those just beginning as preachers. Its brevity will enhance its appeal. I have pleasure in commending it.

...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.

... 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.
