Publisher's Description

Previously published in hardcover as King's Cross

The most influential man to ever walk the earth has had his story told in hundreds of different ways for thousands of years. Can any more be said?

Now, Timothy Keller, New York Times bestselling author of The Reason for God and the man Newsweek called a "C. S. Lewis for the twenty-first century," unlocks new insights into the life of Jesus Christ as he explores how Jesus came as a king, but a king who had to bear the greatest burden anyone ever has. Jesus the King is Keller’s revelatory look at the life of Christ as told in the Gospel of Mark. 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. It is an unforgettable look at Jesus Christ, and one that will leave an indelible imprint on every reader.

Look out for Timothy Keller's latest book, The Songs of Jesus.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Timothy Keller and Jesus the King

"Much of Redeemer is remarkably traditional. What is not traditional is Dr. Keller's skill in speaking the language of his urbane audience . . . Observing Dr. Keller's professorial pose on stage, it is easy to understand his appeal." —The New York Times

"Fifty years from now, if . . . 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 

"In discussing the identity of Jesus, the author describes him as a man both deeply embedded within his culture and times while also living counter to them in many ways. . . . The author describes a man aware of his upcoming sacrifice, and indeed, a man in continual sacrifice, as he had descended from heaven to live on earth. Captivating reading from a Christian perspective." —Kirkus Reviews

"Keller engages the reader with astute pastoral application, littered with excellent sermon illustrations. . . . [Jesus the King] finds Keller in familiar territory: producing another great book, leaving readers from atheist to Christian grappling with the nature and implications of the gospel of Jesus Christ." —Michael Johnson, DesiringGod.org

"This is the book where Tim Keller hits his stride as an author. . . . Keller directs readers' gazes toward the cross and will not allow them to look away." —Collin Hansen, The Gospel Coalition

    Used JESUS THE KING for a summer Bible Study and many in the group shared with family and friends who bought the book for themselves. It is personal application and life changing. It's more than the story of the Son of God. It's an opportunity to grow in relationship with God.!

    He introduces his subject by speaking of The Dance. Each person of the Trinity glorifies the other. He quotes C.S. Lewis,"In Christianity, God is not a static thing...but a dynamic, pulsating activity, a life, almost a drama...a kind of dance." The Trinity is characterized in their essence by mutually self-giving love. God invites us into the dance by glorifying Him, centering our entire life in Him, and finding beauty in Him. Keller later speaks of the Lord's dying words from the cross, "My God, why have you forsaken me?" For our sake, Jesus was temporaily being cut out of the dance.

    Keller makes the interesting comment that pupils chose Rabbis; rabbis did not choose pupils. Yet the Lord called people to follow Him and in essence was saying,"Knowing me, loving me, resembling me, and serving me must become the supreme passion of your life. Everything else becomes second-such as family and friends."

    He also speaks of the flaming sword in Gen. 3:24 and that Jesus went under the sword;the veil was parted;the way back into the garden (fellowship with God) was permanently reopened.

    Keller lso observes that at the last passover meal with Jesus, there is no mention of a lamb because the Lamb of God was at the table.

    This study brings to light new insights into the ministry of Jesus from the book of Mark which challenged and enriched my life.

    This is an extended meditation on "the premise that Jesus' life, death and resurrection form the central event of cosmic and human history as well as the central organizing principle of our lives." (x) The world and how we fit into it is clearly understood by looking at the story of Jesus.

    Keller follows through the gospel of Mark in a very readable commentary. He uses examples from literature and life today to illustrate the truths Mark records.

    Keller gives many insights into the life of Jesus and what they mean for us. For example:

    From Mark 9:19-29 Keller reminds us that, like the boy's father, we do not have to have perfect righteousness or total belief. "You must admit that you are not righteous, and that you need help. When you can say that, you are approaching God to worship." (121)

    "The gospel is the ultimate story that shows victory coming out of defeat, strength coming out of weakness, life coming out of death, rescue from abandonment." (230) Keller encourages us that we can have the same story by accepting what Jesus has done for us.

    This book is for anyone desiring insights into Jesus' life and what it means to us today. Keller does not, in general, delve into the Greek. This is not for the scholar. This is for the person desiring to meditate on the events in the life of Jesus.
