Crown of Thorns: Connecting Kingdom and Cross
2 in stock
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.
"... 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
"... skilfully integrates and weaves together the two dimensions of Cross and Kingdom towards a healthy, scriptural understanding of Christ's accomplishment."?
