Every year our advent candle builds expectation for Christmas, but it burns down to nothing. This wonderful book will create expectation and leave you feeling moved, joyful, thankful and awestruck. You will not be empty-handed or empty-hearted after spending a month with these devotions. Along the way, you will learn to see the riches of Christ in the Old Testament and feel a fresh impetus to see centrality of the story of Jesus in the pages of your Bible.

Have you become a Christmas cynic like me, jaded by a commercialized holiday?  Instead of saying 'bah humbug,' let Tim Chester take you past the trees and tinsel to the ancient biblical drama that led up to Jesus' birth.  The One Trust Story connects the familiar Christmas story to God's mighty works in the past, as well as to our lives in the modern world with freshness and delight.

Every Christmas our hearts must be re-tuned to God’s glorious purpose for sending Jesus into this world. I heartily recommend Tim Chester’s, The One True Story, to do just that. Read it and you will once again resonate with the God of the universe who loves you through Jesus.

The One True Story: Daily readings for Advent from Genesis to Jesus

Frederick Hodgson, November 1st 2016

It is hard to see how readers of this inexpensive book would not be stimulated to pursue the themes of grace, judgment, faith, salvation, sin, temptation and the ‘true people of God’, as they are developed in the biblical story from beginning to end.... continue reading

Christ from Beginning to End

Lewis Allen, Evangelicals Now, December 1st 2016

Each chapter takes five or six minutes to read comfortably out loud, and closes with a thought for reflection, accompanied by a prayer or a hymn. Those new to the faith will find the gospel opened up to them and seasoned pilgrims will discover much to encourage. Preachers will love the wealth of material here to bring freshness to Christmas ministry, as well as to strengthen their grasp of biblical theology. Highly recommended.... continue reading

“A Fabulous Read”

(Review written for 'The One True Story')

I am already a great fan of Tim Chester’s work especially his Advent and Lent readings. This book is surely one of his best. He takes us through many of the familiar stories by of the Old Testament and shows how they fit into the one great story which runs through scripture - the story of creation, fall, redemption and new creation. I have been a Christian for over forty years and yet I learned many new things from this study. It made my heart sing. Thank you Tim Chester.
