It is all very well to say that a Christian should take the Lord Jesus Christ as their life model, but where do you find simple, clear teaching written with a pastor’s heart on this vital subject? This book is the answer: in short, easily read sections Jeremy Walker follows the determined path of the Lord in saving his people, and shows how the Christian can pattern mind and life after the Saviour.
Jeremy Walker was born to godly parents and was converted to Christ during his teenage years. He serves as a pastor of Maidenbower Baptist Church, Crawley, and is married to Alissa, with whom he enjoys the blessing of three children. He has authored several books, and is grateful to preach and to write as opportunity provides.
The brevity of this work betrays its significance. Rarely have I been so challenged and encouraged by a single book. It is demanding and convicting, and yet instructive and hopeful. Like a compass, it turns the reader back to the heart of true discipleship. Initially, it deserves multiple readings, and then, it should be read once a year to help the believer maintain the course.

This is a great little book that is much needed at the present time, written by a real man of God for whom I have huge respect. It considers the Lord Jesus Christ as he sets out on his way to Jerusalem to accomplish our salvation. The Lord Jesus of the Bible, the one to whom this book points us, is what a real man should be: clear-eyed with unflinching determination, conviction, self-discipline and courage. But he is not cold or stoic. To quote Jeremy, “Christ had a face like flint because he had a heart on fire.” I recommend this book enthusiastically and pray that we will have the same flint-like determination to seek God, make our salvation sure, put sin to death, increase in holiness, be godly husbands, wives, fathers, mothers, children, church members, and to carry out whatever we have been called to carry out for the kingdom.

Jeremy Walker has provided us with a valuable treasure in this new book, A Face Like a Flint. Writing with an engaging pen, he does a masterful job of describing for us the unflinching resolve of the Lord Jesus Christ as He headed to the cross. This same firm determination is so desperately needed in our lives today. In a day when many believers are lacking depth of convictions, this book will put a backbone of steel into followers of Christ as we walk in His steps. Be ready to be challenged by what you read and compelled to live with the same unwavering fortitude as did our Lord!

In a culture where casual Christianity dominates so much of evangelicalism, a prophetic voice is needed to call true believers to a holy determination to follow Jesus. Jeremy Walker in this book is that voice. A Face Like A Flint powerfully points us to the redeeming work of Jesus and his unchanging word as the key for every Christian to channel this righteous tenacity. Written with a clarity, wit, and precision that mark all of Walker's books, you will be inspired and convicted to pursue Christ, cling to his word, and hold fast until the end with a renewed resolve. I commend this book and the faithful man who wrote it.
