Description



Book Synopsis



New York Times bestselling author of The Prodigal Prophet Timothy Keller explores how people are changed by meeting Jesus personally--and how we can be changed encountering him today.

The people who met Jesus Christ in person faced the same big life questions we face today. Like most of us, the answers handed down to them didn't seem to work in the real world. But when they met Jesus, things immediately started to change for them. It seems he not only had the answers--he was the answer. In Encounters with Jesus, Timothy Keller shows how the central events and meetings in Jesus' life can change our own lives forever.

"Keller's work belongs on the bookshelf of every serious Bible student." --Examiner

"Keller has mined the gold from these texts of Scripture, and any Christian is bound to have their minds expanded and hearts stirred." --Grace for Sinners



Review Quotes




Praise for Timothy Keller and Encounters with Jesus

"Keller's work belongs on the bookshelf of every serious Bible student. It is not a quick read, but, instead should be savored like fine wine, one sip at a time to glean the full impact of his life-changing message." --Examiner

"Keller has mined the gold from these texts of Scripture, and any Christian is bound to have their minds expanded and hearts stirred, even if they have read these accounts countless times." --Grace for Sinners

"Tim Keller's ministry in New York City is leading a generation of seekers and skeptics toward belief in God. I thank God for him." --Billy Graham

"Unlike most suburban megachurches, much of Redeemer is remarkably traditional. What is not traditional is Dr. Keller's skill in speaking the language of his urbane audience. . . . It's easy to understand his appeal." --The New York Times

"Reverend Tim Keller [is] a Manhattan institution, one of those open urban secrets, like your favorite dim sum place, with a following so ardent and so fast-growing that he has never thought to advertise." --Newsweek

"The most successful Christian Evangelist in [New York City] . . . With intellectual, brimstone-free sermons that manage to city Woody Allen alongside Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, Keller draws some five thousand young followers every Sunday. Church leaders see him as a model of how to evangelize urban centers across the country, and Keller has helped 'plant' fifty gospel-based Christian churches around New York plus another fifty from San Francisco to London." --New York

"Using literature, philosophy, and pop culture, the author gives convincing reasons for a strong belief in God. It is refreshing to read a book that presents a religious view without being overly critical of the secular side presented in other books." --Library Journal

"It's a provocative premise, in pursuit of which Keller--known for drawing cosmopolitan urbanites to his Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan--takes on nonbelievers from evolutionary biologists to the recent rash of atheist authors." --The Boston Globe
