Timothy Paul Jones (@timothywashere) Endorses Torn to Heal for #Royals Fans

According to Timothy Paul Jones, Torn to Heal is a great book for Royals fans:
"As two of the few remaining fans of the Kansas City Royals, Mike Leake and I know what you're talking about when you talk about suffering. After two decades in the tomb of the American League, it is true of the Royals what was true of Lazarus: 'Lord, they stinketh.' And verily, we are tempted to become Stoics or dualists about it. Books like this, however, may help Royals fans to see a purpose in their suffering. Purchase a copy for the Royals fan in your life, even though it's highly unlikely that you have any Royals fans in your life since most people have assumed for several years that the Royals have turned into a high school team. And last year, they played like it--but they're still officially Major League and, thus far this year, they're almost playing like a professional team but we're not holding our collective breath. Even if you don't know any Royals fans, this book may work for Cleveland Indians fans too and maybe even Cubs fans, if you know any. So buy it for them."
He also seriously endorsed the book:
"Mike Leake takes us on a gospel-driven path between dualism that acts as if God has lost control of his world and fatalism/stoicism that tries to bury pain beneath emotionless acceptance of whatever happens. The result is a brief but potent primer for ordinary people on the purpose of suffering."
Dr. Jones is one of my favorite professors at SBTS. I’m honored that he took the time to not only endorse the book once but twice. The book is scheduled to release tomorrow. Be sure to get your copy today. (For those of you that asked it should be available on Amazon in the next couple days).


  1. Congrats on the endorsement and book. I'm a Twins fan, but always hope that the Royals will finish on top of the AL Central is we can't. Can't stand the Indians, White Sox, and Tigers!

    1. Thanks! I was a Twins fan last night. And will be again for the next couple days.
