Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Chester and Woodrow have given us a gift that will lift our eyes from this temporal horizon to the steppes of eternal joys of our High Priest in heaven." ~ Eric C. Redmond (Executive Pastoral Assistant and Bible Professor in Residence New Canaan Baptist Church, Washington, DC Council Member, The Gospel Coalition)

"With the publication of Chester and Woodrow's The Ascension: Humanity in the Presence of God, I'm grateful to be able to point others to an accessible and inspiring study of this central Christian doctrine. In reading this book, Christians will find their minds sharpened and hearts warmed. Delightfully, the book ends with an Ascension hymn. Theology leads to doxology." ~ Robert L. Plummer (Associate Professor of New Testament Interpretation, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky)

"The writers show us the Bible's answers to these questions and many more. If you have ever wondered why the ascension is critical to being a disciple of Jesus or why it wasn't just a bad strategy by God that removed the main evidence for Christianity, you will find plenty of help here." ~ Marcus Honeysett (Director of Living Leadership and author of Finding Joy, Kent, England)

"Glorious and unexpected truths are here constantly laid bare for our wonder and our joy." ~ Jonathan Stephen (Principal, Wales Evangelical School of Theology, Bridgend, Wales)
