Book Description

Feb. 22 2011
New York Times bestselling author and nationally renowned minister Timothy Keller unlocks new insights into the life of Jesus Christ.

King's Cross is Timothy Keller's revelatory look at the life of Christ as told in the Gospel of Mark. There have been many biographies of Jesus, but few will be as anticipated as one by Keller, the man Newsweek calls "a C.S. Lewis for the twenty-first century." In it, Keller shows how the story of Jesus is at once cosmic, historical, and personal, calling each of us to look anew at our relationship with God. Like Keller's other books it has tremendous crossover appeal, but it is also ideal for the faithful, those who are looking for a closer connection to Jesus and Christianity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read! Oct. 14 2013

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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating tour of the gospel of Mark April 5 2011
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.

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.
