What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“We are called to be salt and light. Yet often the church fails to live differently. In our busy culture, we rarely spend time dealing with sinful areas of our lives; instead we try to sweep them under the carpet. Tim’s book is a biblical and practical challenge to the very root causes of ungodly patterns of behavior. Read it and allow God to change you!”
Andy Frost, Director, Share Jesus International

“A wonderful book for those who are serious about personal change. For so many Christians the gulf between our aspirations and the reality of our daily Christian walk is very large. Here is very helpful material to help us bridge this gap and become the whole people God intended us to be.”
Stephen Gaukroger, Senior Minister, Gold Hill Baptist Church

“A book about Christian growth that is neither quietistic nor moralistic is rare. A book that is truly practical is even rarer. Tim Chester’s new volume falls into both categories and therefore fills a gap.”
Timothy J. Keller, Pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City; best-selling author, The Reason for God

“There are few books that are shockingly honest, carefully theological, and gloriously hopeful all at the same time. Tim Chester’s book You Can Change is all of these and more. He skillfully uses the deepest insights of the theology of the Word as a lens to help you understand yourself and the way of change and, in so doing, helps you to experience practically what you thought you already knew. The carefully crafted personal ‘reflection’ and ‘change project’ sections are worth the price of the book by themselves. It is wonderful to be reminded that you and I are not stuck, and it’s comforting to be guided by someone who knows well the road from where we are to where we need to be.”
Paul David Tripp, president, Paul Tripp Ministries; author, What Did You Expect?

I absolutely love this book. It was recommended by my pastor and another member from our church. I couldn't put it down but I did, only so that I can absorb the message. I would only read a chapter a day and reflect on what was being shared. Amazing! My favorite line: "Sometimes Christians flow away from God, but still we move downstream toward the ocean of his love." Basically, God's love is constant so no matter what, we can count on him at any time in our life.

Very well written, practical and Gospel centered book on growth in Christ. The world has a love/hate relationship with change. The church should desire to change into Christ likeness more every day. Chester helps us think through not only the theology of change but gives us a road map for actually taking the grace-driven steps to change our thinking and behavior through the daily struggle of fighting against sin and for faith and repentance. I highly recommend this short read and especially recommend it to someone struggling with one recurring sin that seems to have a hold on them. You will be helped here.
