Product Description

Review

'A vividly written and very moving presentation of the great themes of the gospel... its simplest and most dominant insight is that Christianity is not advice but news.' Dr Rown Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury A C.S. Lewis for the 21st century Newsweek Tim Keller's ministry in New York City is leading a generation of seekers and sceptics toward belief in God. I thank God for him. Billy Graham This is the book I give to all my friends who are serious spiritual seekers or sceptics. Rick Warren, author of The Purpose Driven Life, on THE REASON FOR GOD --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

About the Author

As the founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, Tim Keller started his congregation with a few dozen people. It now draws over five thousand weekly attendees who meet in three Manhattan locations. Redeemer has since spawned a movement of churches across America and throughout major world cities. Many pastors model their churches on Redeemer and Tim's thoughtful style of preaching. Dr. Keller lives in New York City with his wife and sons.

Definitely worth the read. I really like Keller's clear and more logical way of explaining things. Will be re-reading it!

I bought this book for my brother's birthday -- he hasn't finished it yet but says its a great book! Challenging him in many ways. I chose to buy this one for him, not because I knew that much about Keller but because I know that as Christians we need to always remind ourselves of the importance of Jesus Christ in our lives and our faith!

Always love Keller books, so far a few chapters in and I can say his insights into the book of Mark are profound and excite me about Jesus.

Tim Keller takes us on a tour of the gospel of Mark, emphasizing key points along the way. The first part of the gospel establishes Jesus as King, the second part displays him as a suffering King on a cross. The main problem with this book is that it keeps disrupting the incessant pace of Mark's gospel (the gospel of Mark is not padded, to say the least) with Keller's insights. Sometimes Keller gets in the way of the story, but he also provides worthwhile insights at key points in the story, especially where he enlightens us as to what the audience of the day would have thought of Jesus' words and deeds.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Having recently discovered Tim Keller, I have to say that I am becoming a fan. Keller is able to connect so many different worlds together: The Old and New Testament worlds (which are not the same), the present and the past, the wounded and the healed, the temporal and the eternal, the worldly and the divine. Mr. Keller's writing reflects his joy in knowledge, wisdom and the foundational belief that if God is who He is in the Holy Scripture, He is as relevant today, to everyone, no matter who and where they are, as to the members of the early church. This idea comes out in spades in this book. This is not a commentary, but in many ways suggests lines of academic thought concerning the Gospel of Mark that are often neglected. The basic message that one comes away with is that of a loving God who is present and active in reconciling a broken, distant humanity to himself, in the only way that was (and still is) possible. The result of this reconciliation is one of gratefulness, transformed life and promise of eternity. These eternal truths are editorially and sometimes poetically drawn out in King's Cross.
