The Ordinary Hero

Full Product Description

The cross and resurrection provide the pattern for discipleship today, calling Christians to a radical new way of living.

The Ordinary Hero invites us to :
live out the radical implications of grace
apply the way of the cross: sacrificial love and service, to every area of life
accept the pattern of suffering followed by glory as normal
pursue spiritual power, not for its own sake, but in order to live the weakness of the cross
embark on risk-taking lives because we're focussed on the world to come

Says the author, '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 Ordinary Hero by Tim Chester was published by Inter-Varsity Press in May 2009 and is our 20873rd best seller. The ISBN for The Ordinary Hero is 9781844743773.
