I’ve worked closely with Tim over the last few years and recognise him as an outstanding leader from whom we have much to learn. This dynamic and powerful material is essential reading for any leader who wants to go the distance.

As you read this book, I think you will understand that it isabout the ‘upside-down gospel’, so to speak.. Jesus said, ‘if you want tobe first in the Kingdom of God you’ve got to be the last’ (Matt.20:26). As Tim would share his heart with you, I trust that you too will become a servant of the Lord.
