Hidden Christmas

The Surprising Truth behind the Birth of Christ

By Timothy Keller

  • Paperback
  • £9.99

One of bestselling New York pastor Tim Keller's most popular Christmas sermons, expanded and published in a beautiful gift edition.

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.

Biographical Notes

Timothy Keller was born in Pennsylvania and educated at Bucknell University, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and Westminster Theological Seminary. He became a Christian at university, was ordained by the Presbyterian Church in America and worked as a pastor for nine years.

He was asked to start Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan in 1989, and under his leadership the church's congregation experienced unprecedented growth from 50 to 5000 members. His target audience consists mainly of urban professionals, whom he believes exhibit disproportionate influence over the culture and its ideas.

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."

Timothy Keller is renowned for his clear, reasoned approach to Christian apologetics and his book THE REASON FOR GOD: BELIEF IN AN AGE OF SKEPTICISM was named Book of the Year for 2008 by World Magazine.

Timothy Keller lives in New York City with his wife Kathy and sons David, Michael and Jonathan.

When All is Said

Anne Griffin
Authors:
Anne Griffin

'An extraordinary novel, a poetic writer, and a story that moved me to tears.' John BoyneA tale of a single night. The story of a lifetime. If you had to pick five people to sum up your life, who would they be? If you were to raise a glass to each of them, what would you say? And what would you learn about yourself, when all is said and done?This is the story of Maurice Hannigan, an Irish farmer. Over the course of a Saturday night in June, he orders five drinks at the Rainsford House Hotel, and with each he toasts a key person from his life: his adored older brother; his troubled sister-in-law; his daughter of fifteen minutes; his son far off in America; and his late, much missed wife. Through these people, the ones who have left him behind, he tells the story of his own life, with all its regrets and feuds, loves and triumphs. Exquisitely written and powerfully felt, When All is Said promises to be the next great Irish novel.'A hugely enjoyable, engrossing novel, a genuine page-turner.' Donal Ryan

Lainey Morse

Lainey Morse didn't set out to start a fitness craze, but she got one when her yoga-instructor friend asked her if she could hold a yoga class on Lainey's farm.

Now, Lainey has people travelling from every corner of the globe, from Iceland to Australia, to experience goat yoga where it all began.For readers who can't make the trip to Lainey's 'No Regrets' farm in Oregon or who don't have goat yoga in their city just yet, this book offers an 'armchair goat yoga experience', complete with adorable photos of Lainey's twelve goats (each of which has a big personality and will be profiled in the book) and a yoga sequence you can do with or without bovine friends.'It turns out doing sun salutations alongside these smart, social animals is an effective distraction from the stress of everyday life.' - Publishers Weekly'Goat yoga has got legs. So much so, that it's leapt over the Atlantic and onto Countryfile segments and is even a storyline in the Archers.' - The Telegraph

Making Sense of God

Timothy Keller
Authors:
Timothy Keller

We live in an age of scepticism. Our society places such faith in empirical reason, historical progress, and heartfelt emotion that it's easy to wonder: why should anyone believe in Christianity? What role can faith and religion play in our modern lives? In this thoughtful and inspiring book, pastor and New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller invites sceptics to consider that Christianity is as relevant now as ever. As human beings, we cannot live without meaning, satisfaction, freedom, identity, justice and hope - and Christianity provides us with unsurpassed resources to meet all these needs. Written for both sceptic and believer, Making Sense of God shines a light on the profound value and importance of Christianity in our lives.

Crazy Christians

Michael B. Curry
Authors:
Michael B. Curry

We need some Christians who are as crazy as the Lord. Crazy enough to love like Jesus, to give like Jesus, to forgive like Jesus, to do justice, love mercy, walk humbly with God?like Jesus. Crazy enough to dare to change the world from the nightmare it often is into something close to the dream that God dreams for it. And for those who would follow him, those who would be his disciples, those who would live as and be the people of the Way? It might come as a shock, but they are called to craziness.From Bishop Curry's "Crazy Christians" address to the 2012 General Convention of the Episcopal Church in Indianapolis.
