I Wish Jesus Hadn't Said That...

Full Product Description

Steve Timmis, founder of the ‘Crowded House’ initiative and author of ‘The Gospel Centred Church’ takes an honest look at the things Jesus said that seem to ask more of us than we can dare to give. Much of Jesus words seem to turn the world upside down – and not for good and benefit of the people he calls to follow him.

Yes we know that in following Jesus instruction we’ll be winners rather than losers, but how does that work in practice? Explaining troublesome phrases such as‘Take up your cross’ ‘Love your enemies’ ‘I did not come to bring peace, but a sword’ ‘Go and make disciples of all nations’ Steve Timmis shows how obeying God isn’t about spoiling everything in your life, rather it enables us to live the life we were always made to live.

I Wish Jesus Hadn't Said That... by Steve Timmis was published by IVP in March 2013 and is our 10474th best seller. The ISBN for I Wish Jesus Hadn't Said That... is 9781844748723.

Publisher's Description

Jesus had a way of turning things on their head big time. We call ourselves his followers, but are we really willing to dare to follow him when he says:

‘Take up your cross’‘Love your enemies’‘I did not come to bring peace, but a sword’‘Go and make disciples of all nations’

‘Let’s face it,’ says Steve Timmis. ‘Being a follower of Jesus can be rather inconvenient … a pain in the neck.’ It cuts right across so many of our ‘natural’ rights and desires.

Or so we think.

But the paradox is that it’s in the losing, rather than the loving, of our lives that we find amazing joy and deep fulfilment. Obeying God, rather than spoiling everything, enables us to live the life we were always made to live.

Endorsements

'I found this book compulsive reading - I couldn't put it down! The author, Steve Timmis, hits hard, but so truly and fairly - he kept reminding me of Jerry Bridges' book "Respectable Sins" and I felt convicted in every chapter, but also encouraged to accept the challenge to change - and be changed - to become what Jesus wants me to be. Thank you, Steve!' - Helen Roseveare, 20 years medical missionary in Congo with WEC International; many years as deputation worker worldwide; and author of 12 books.

'Steve Timmis’ writing makes easy-reading without being shallow as he treats some of Jesus’ meaty sayings. Concise, relevant, applied and insightful.' - Simon Guillebaud.
