King's Cross - Tim Challies
This is a book about Jesus—Jesus as he is portrayed in the Gospel of Mark. My purpose here is to try to show, through his words and actions, how beautifully his life makes sense of ours.
And yet somehow reading this book does not feel like reading sermons—it feels like meditation upon a text. Its style is pure Keller, probably closest to The Prodigal God, though certainly there are similarities with his other kings cross tim keller as well.
This is not an kings cross tim keller of the entire text of Mark, but rather an exposition of some of the more significant moments.
And in that way it reads like a biography of Jesus, an account of his life, his death, his meaning, his purpose. While Keller inevitably turns to the parallel accounts of Jesus in the other gospel, his central focus remains Mark.
Most of the chapters are similar lengths and the writing style is geared very much for the layperson, and perhaps especially for a person with little theological background.
And this is what Keller does so well—speak to unbelievers kings cross tim keller to new believers.
King's Cross: The Story of the World in the Life of Jesus by Timothy J. Keller
This is a book you could hand to just about anyone as a means of introducing that person to Jesus—to who he is and to what he has done. One reviewer has said that this is the book where Tim Keller hits his stride as an author.
Using the story of Adam, Keller explains that God said to Adam "because you love me, don't eat from the tree--just because I kings cross tim keller so.
Obey me about the tree and you will live". We know that Adam didn't live up to his end of the bargain.
King's Cross: The Story of the World in the Life of Jesus
God said to Jesus, 'Obey me about the tree',--only this time the tree was a cross--and you will die. He has gone before you into the heart of a very real battle to draw you into the kings cross tim keller reality of the dance.
What He has enjoyed from all eternity, he has come to offer to you".
In the afterward of the book, Keller tells us that "Steven Spielberg was refused any Kings cross tim keller until he stopped making movies with only happy endings, yet his fairy tale-ending movies are his most popular.
He Keller goes on to say that Tolkien argues that "people sense that such stories point to some underlying Reality.
As we read or watch them, we are being told that the world is certainly filled with danger. Keller also shares the words of theologian Robert W. Jensen who argues that "our culture in in crisis because the modern world kings cross tim keller lost it's story.
We once thought that life had a purpose, that there was something to live for, and that there was hope for a resolution to the sufferings of the world. Now, many say, none of these things are true". What a sad statement.
