REVIEWS &; ENDORSEMENTS

Tim is a master storyteller. The Day That Changed Forever helps us experience the events surrounding the crucifixion of Jesus through the eyes and hearts of those who were there. I highly recommend it… – Dr. Steve Ogne

Tim’s stories captivated my imagination, taught me intricacies I’ve somehow missed and helped me find the Jesus I want to know. – Hugh Halter, author of “The Tangible Kingdom”

It brought out a new passion and extreme emotion that I have not felt in a long time. I really needed that. I cried like I did when I first believed and received Gods gift! – Deanna D

Transformissional Coaching, co-authored with Tim’s CRM teammate Dr. Steve Ogne equips leaders who want to empower others through the ministry of coaching.  “In a time of profound and rapid change, church leaders are presented with a new paradigm that empowers them to stay culturally sensitive and on task.  Tim and Steve see “transformissional coaching” as coming alongside leaders so they can be transformed into the image of Jesus and join Him on His redemptive mission in our world. Entering and experiencing the Great Commandment goes together with expressing and engaging the Great Commission.  You can’t have one without the other.”  To purchase this book click here.

 

“Christmas Hearts” was published in 1998, the first of Tim’s “Jesus” books.  Twelve stories of those who were part of the first Christmas story bring the power of Christ’s incarnation to us today.  Now out of print, you can still buy this book at online at places at Amazon (click here) or at  www.half.com (click here).Here’s a review from Amazon:”Used for advent meditations, each chapter prepared by mind and heart for Christ’s birth. First, it slowed me down – mentally and physically, putting into perspective the true meaning of Christmas. Each of the twelve encounters brought to life Christ’s birth. Recalling the conversation between Gabriel and Michael, could have taken place today with the current state of our world. I am eager ot share this book with others – early gifts for next Christmas!”

“Surprised By Grace” was published in 2000, the second of Tim’s “Jesus” books.  These twelve stories retell the experiences of those changed by Jesus during His ministry years as told in the Gospels.  Now out of print, you can still buy this book online at www.amazon.com (Click here) or www.half.com (click here)
