So how should they respond to these passionate, learned, and persuasive books that promote science and secularism over religion and faith? For years, Tim Keller has compiled a list of the most frequently voiced "doubts" skeptics bring to his Manhattan church; here, he dismantles each of them. Written with atheists, agnostics, and skeptics in mind, Keller also provides an intelligent platform on which true believers can stand their ground when bombarded by the backlash. This book challenges such ideology at its core and points to the true path and purpose of Christianity.--From publisher description+-+949504070593510ocn526057561book20100.17Keller, Timothy JGenerous justice : how God's grace makes us justKeller argues that the Bible's message helps, not hinders, justice and human rights, and provides evidence in scripture guiding Christians to aid the poor and seek a life of justice empowered by grace+-+85460407058417ocn223800589book20080.18Keller, Timothy JThe prodigal God : recovering the heart of the Christian faithUses the biblical tale of the prodigal son to provide both an introduction to Christianity and a clarifying primer on the nature of the gospel for believers, in a resource that reveals how Jesus's essential message is revealed by the story in ways that can enable greater understandings of the Christian faith+-+14250407058306ocn646111977book20110.17Keller, Timothy JKing's cross : the story of the world in the life of JesusCriticism, interpretation, etcPresents a revelatory examination of the life of Christ as told in the Gospel of Mark, inviting readers to review their personal relationships with God with a greater understanding of historical events+-+65670407057727ocn706017796book20110.17Keller, Timothy JThe meaning of marriage : facing the complexities of commitment with the wisdom of GodThere has never been a marriage book like The Meaning of Marriage. Based on the acclaimed sermon series by New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller, this book shows everyone -- Christians, skeptics, singles, long-time married couples, and those about to be engaged -- the vision of what marriage should be according to the Bible. Modern culture would make you believe that everyone has a soul-mate; that romance is the most important part of a successful marriage; that your spouse is there to help you realize your potential; that marriage does not mean forever, but merely for now; that starting over after a divorce is the best solution to seemingly intractable marriage issues. All those modern-day assumptions are, in a word, wrong. Using the Bible as his guide, coupled with insightful commentary from his wife of thirty-six years, Kathy, Timothy Keller shows that God created marriage to bring us closer to him and to bring us more joy in our lives. It is a glorious relationship that is also the most misunderstood and mysterious. With a clear-eyed understanding of the Bible, and meaningful instruction on how to have a successful marriage, The Meaning of Marriage is essential reading for anyone who wants to know God and love more deeply in this life. - Publisher+-+52970407056135ocn311776980book20090.18Keller, Timothy JCounterfeit gods : the empty promises of money, sex, and power, and the only hope that mattersThe "New York Times"-bestselling author of "The reason for God" and "The prodigal God" exposes the error of making good things (i.e., success, true love, and security) into idols, and shows readers a new path toward a hope that lasts+-+41860407055572ocn779263459book20120.17Keller, Timothy JEvery good endeavor : connecting your work to God's workKeller shows how excellence, integrity, discipline, creativity, and passion in the workplace can help others and even be considered acts of worship--not just of self-interest4697ocn834432827book20130.15Keller, Timothy JWalking with God through pain and sufferingThe problem of pain is a perennial one; and for those who undergo particular sufferings it can often be the largest obstacle for trusting in a good and loving God. If such a God exists, why is there so much suffering in the world? And how do we deal with it when it comes into our lives? In his fullest and most passionately argued book since 2008's bestseller The Reason For God, New York pastor and church planter Tim Keller brings his authoritative teaching, sensitivity to contemporary culture and pastoral heart to this pressing question, offering no easy answers but giving guidance, encouragement and inspiration4447ocn834432829book20130.13Keller, Timothy JEncounters with Jesus : unexpected answers to life's biggest questionsWhat 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.--From publisher description2105ocn209347554rcrd20080.12Keller, Timothy JThe reason for God belief in an age of skepticismProvides Christians with reasoned responses to the doubts that skeptics express.

Timothy Keller, pastor of an inner-city New York church, looks at some of the most widespread accusations levelled at Christianity, including Christianity's claim of exclusivity; how a good God could allow suffering; why the Church is responsible for injustice; and if science has disproved religious belief.

AThe Gospel as center : renewing our faith and reforming our ministry practicesThe church is reeling because of the relativistic mindset of our world. Up until a generation ago, most adults had similar moral intuitions whether they were believers or not, and the core of protestant orthodoxy was still intact. Yet, in the wake of postmodernity and secularism, all that has changed. Convinced that gospel-centered ministry is utterly imperative for such a time as this and to strengthen the center of confessional evangelicalism, this volume collects the 14 booklets in the Gospel Coalition Booklet series. In addition, this volume includes a preface, the Gospel Coalition's foundational documents, and indexes. The editors and contributors represent a wide range of denominations and are united not only by belief in the biblical gospel, but also by the conviction that ministry today must be increasingly Gospel centered+-+K610608896874ocn276300707rcrd20080.13Keller, Timothy JThe prodigal God recovering the heart of the Christian faithEmploys the biblical story about the prodigal son to provide an introduction to Christianity, clarify the nature of the gospel for believers, and explain how the essential message of the story provides a greater understanding of the Christian faith+-+3538968965181ocn855890701book20130.70Campbell, Iain DEngaging with Keller : thinking through the theology of an influential evangelicalHistoryTim Keller's name is known across the evangelical world. His work as a pastor-teacher has found expression both in the urban ministries of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York, and in his many writings. Keller's books, in turn, have spawned Bible study courses and generated a great measure of discussion about key biblical concepts, as he has sought to make the gospel relevant for a modern generation. In this collection of essays, written from within the same evangelical constituency, several writers engage with different aspects of Keller's thought.

Gresham Machen and Timothy J. KellerThe thesis of this dissertation is that J. Gresham Machen and Timothy J. Keller provide contemporary pulpits with two examples of preachers who present a consistent worldview. This thesis is demonstrated through a description and evaluation of their preaching based on four elements of a worldview in James Sire's book The Universe Next Door. By presenting Machen and Keller as examples of worldview preaching, this dissertation provides a study on the use of the worldview concept in evangelical preaching, in order to discover what these two preachers consistently do in their preaching so as to be categorized as worldview preachers. Thus the study provides homiletic students with two examples of how the worldview concept might be applied to contemporary preaching. Chapter 2 presents a brief biographical sketch of Machen and Keller in order to set their writings and preaching in their distinct historical and cultural contexts. Specific focus is upon Machen's battle with theological modernism and Keller's ministry to skeptical New Yorkers through Redeemer Presbyterian Church+-+9495040705+-+9495040705Fri Mar 21 15:57:50 EDT 2014batch28603
