Ordinary Hero: Living the Cross and Resurrection in Everyday Life

Ordinary Hero: Living the Cross and Resurrection in Everyday Life

by Tim Chester

$7.79 $11.99

Overview

How should we live? What does it really mean to be a Christian believer in everyday life?

Intriguingly, when the New Testament writers answered that question, they did not look back to the life of the Lord Jesus. Again and again, they focused on his death and resurrection.

The cross and resurrection provide the pattern for discipleship, calling Christians to a new way of living, with different values, different hopes. This lucid, passionate, practical guidebook gets right to the heart of what it means to be a Christian disciple today.

Tim Chester writes, 'This book strikes a note that is rarely heard today. In particular, the important themes of suffering followed by glory, and the hiddenness of the Christian life, are all but absent in contemporary Christian thought.'

The book concludes with a powerful story of an ordinary hero.

The included discussion questions make this an ideal book to read together in small groups or as a whole church.
