The Two Advocates

The Encounters With Jesus Series: 7

By Timothy Keller

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

Renowned pastor and New York Times-bestselling author Timothy Keller explores the relationship of Jesus to the Holy Spirit in The Two Advocates, the seventh instalment in his Encounters with Jesus e-book series.

The Gospels are full of encounters that made a profound impact on those who spoke with Jesus Christ. In his Encounters with Jesus series, Timothy Keller, pastor of New York's Redeemer Presbyterian Church and New York Times-bestselling author of The Reason for God, shows how those encounters can still have a deep effect on us today. The Last Supper is known for the breaking of the bread and pouring of the wine. But in The Two Advocates, Keller explores the central point of Jesus' final discourse with his disciples during their last meal. Keller reveals how Jesus describes himself and the Holy Spirit as our advocates before God, and why their advocacy can secure our peace.

This and the other nine in the series make up the complete Encounters With Jesus: Unexpected Answers to Life's Biggest Questions.

The Prodigal Prophet

Timothy Keller
Authors:
Timothy Keller

Most people, even those who are nonreligious, are familiar with the book of Jonah: a rebellious prophet defies God and is swallowed by a whale. Less familiar to most people is the second half of this Biblical story--what happens after Jonah is released from the belly of the fish. Yet it is in this second half of the story that one of the most powerful and important lessons of the Bible is hidden.The famous story shows how, if we would understand the mercy of God, it will always take us in directions we would rather not go, toward people we would rather not care about, and ultimately into the deepest counsels of God. In a time of growing division, The Prodigal Prophet shows us God's love among people, and how Christians must listen to God's call even when it takes them to uncomfortable places.

Authors:
Timothy Keller

This ebook combines Timothy Keller's two bestselling titles on prayer. Keller connects a deep understanding of the Bible with contemporary thought, as he addresses the subject of prayer and the daily reality of praying.Prayer: Prayer is central to Christian faith yet so many people struggle to pray. This wise and inspiring book is offers a real and glorious vision of what it can mean to seek God in prayer.

Here Tim Keller helps readers apply the principles he laid out in his book Prayer: Experiencing Awe and Intimacy with God.

Timothy Keller: King's Cross and Hidden Christmas

Timothy Keller
Authors:
Timothy Keller

Combining two of Keller's most popular books about Jesus, readers are invited to explore the heart of the Christian faith.King's Cross - Drawing from Mark's gospel, Keller explains how Jesus' identity as king and his purpose in dying on the cross have meaning and significance on a cosmic scale as well as for the individual.Hidden Christmas - The New Testament begins not with a dramatic narrative or lofty poetry but with a genealogy. Provocatively, Matthew's gospel includes women in Jesus' family line - something that wasn't customary in an ancient culture, where women were largely powerless and uninfluential. In this surprising take on the Christmas story, Tim Keller reveals how, by focusing on the women in Jesus' birth narratives, a colourful, scandalous, and refreshing tale of grace emerges.

Authors:
Timothy Keller

In today's increasingly competitive and insecure economic environment, we often question the reason for work: why am I doing this? Why is it so hard? And what can I do about it? Work may seem just a means to an end: we do it to earn the money to enjoy life outside the workplace. Here, Timothy Keller argues that God's plan is radically more ambitious: he actually created us to work. We are to work together to make the world a better place, to help each other, and so to find purpose for our lives. Our faith should enhance our work, and our work should develop our faith.With deep insight, Timothy Keller draws on essential and relevant biblical wisdom to address our questions about work. There is grace available if we have taken the wrong attitude, idolising money and using our careers to glorify ourselves rather than God. This book provides the foundations for a work-life balance where we can thrive both personally and professionally. Keller shows how through excellence, integrity, discipline, creativity and passion in the workplace we can impact society for good.Developing a better attitude to work releases us to serve others humbly, to worship God everyday, and leaves us deeply fulfilled.
