Publisher's Description

In Encounters With Jesus, New York Times bestselling author and renowned pastor Timothy Keller shows how people were changed when they met Jesus personally—and how we can be changed today through our own encounter with him.
 
What is my purpose in life? What is a good life? Why is there so much wrong with our world? What can I do to help make it right? These are some of the big questions that everyone must answer. And any lasting change in our lives will start with a change to one or more of our answers to these questions. 
 
Jesus changed the life of every person he met in the Gospels, through powerful experiences and words that led them to unexpected and transforming answers to their big questions. These conversations can still address our questions and doubts today. Originally published as an eSeries, Encounters with Jesus focuses on several of these meetings including with a skeptical student, a religious insider, an outcast, even Jesus’ mother and shows how the central events in Jesus’ life provide ways for us to encounter him again or for the first time.

Author Bio

TIMOTHY KELLER was born and raised in Pennsylvania, and educated at Bucknell University, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and Westminster Theological Seminary. He was first a pastor in Hopewell, Virginia. In 1989 he started Redeemer Presbyterian Church, in New York City, with his wife, Kathy, and their three sons. Today, Redeemer has more than five thousand regular Sunday attendees and has helped to start nearly two hundred new churches around the world. Also the author of The Reason for God, The Prodigal God, Counterfeit Gods, Generous Justice, King's Cross, The Meaning of Marriage, and Every Good Endeavor, Timothy Keller lives in New York City with his family.

Editorial Reviews

"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

"This is the book I give to all my friends who are serious spiritual seekers or skeptics."   -Rick Warren, author of The Purpose Driven Life, on The Reason for God

Praise for Encounters with Jesus

“I highly recommend this work for anyone (christians and non-christians) seeking to truly encounter Jesus.” - Evangelical Book Review

"Fifty years from now, if evangelical Christians are widely known for their love of cities, their commitment to mercy and justice, and their love of their neighbors, Tim Keller will be remembered as a pioneer of the new urban Christians."-Christianity Today Magazine



"Every Good Endeavor will soon become a classic on faith and work, not only because it's intelligent, but because it's accessible... Drawing on decades of study and ministry, Every Good Endeavor may soon become one of the most important contemporary books on faith and work." - Comment Magazine

Like so many life issues for Christians, the word balance is instructive when it comes to work. Every Good Endeavor deftly explains how we can relish and enjoy our work while honoring God and serving others, all the while avoiding the extremes of negativity on the one hand and idolatry on the other." - The Gospel Coalition

"Most people sitting in the pews of our churches on a Sunday morning spend more time in the workplace than anywhere else. Yet we can too easily make following Christ a matter of personal devotions and church activity... This is great book on an important area that is too often neglected." - Tim Chester
