Books by Tim Keller

Updated on October 14, 2014

Books by Tim Keller

The Influentials Issue of New York Magazine featured Dr. Keller as "the most successful Christian evangelist in the city by recognizing that young professionals and artists are 'disproportionately influential' in creating the country's culture and that you have to meet this coveted demographic on its own terms." He is a renowned author, preacher, evangelist and theologian. This lens showcases some of his best known work.

Tim Keller's 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 Manhattan with his wife, Kathy, and their three sons. Today, Redeemer has more than five thousand regular attendees at five services, a host of daughter churches, and is planting churches in large cities throughout the world. He is the author of Counterfeit Gods, The Prodigal God, and the New York Times bestseller The Reason for God.

The Reason for God - Belief in an Age of Skepticism

Reaching #8 on the New York Times Best Seller list, The Reason for God is a fabulous read for anyone wanting to know more about the creator and our relationship to Him. A compilation of years of conversations that Tim Keller had with people concerning who God is and why there is intellectual proof for belief in a benevolent creator, The Reason for God is an enjoyable yet challenging read.

Since it came out I have shared The Reason for God with a number of people, both believers and non-believers. It will provide a great foundation for deep conversations yet the book is written so virtually anyone can understand it.

 

The Prodigal God - Recovering the Heart of the Christian Faith

Newsweek called renowned minister Timothy Keller “a C. S. Lewis for the twenty-first century” in a feature on his first book, The Reason for God. In that book, he offered a rational explanation of why we should believe in God. Now, in The Prodigal God, he uses one of the best-known Christian parables to reveal an unexpected message of hope and salvation.

Taking his trademark intellectual approach to understanding Christianity, Keller uncovers the essential message of Jesus, locked inside his most familiar parable. Within that parable Jesus reveals God's prodigal grace toward both the irreligious and the moralistic. This book will challenge both the devout and skeptics to see Christianity in a whole new way.

I have read this, listened to the sermon series and been humbled by it, encouraged by it and challenged.

      I've heard Tim Keller once at Redeemer Pres. in Manhattan on Jacob wrestling God, and it was one of the best sermons I've had the privilege of hearing. Reason for God is such a well-written exploration into why to believe the God of the Bible in terms that an everyday person with no background in the Bible can relate to and use to ponder why they think and believe the way they do. Great read for anyone thinking about life and its meaning.
