Timothy Keller: The Reason for God, Making Sense of God and The Prodigal God
By Timothy Keller
From New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller, three of his best-known books in one e-book edition.
The Reason for God: this book has been written for believers and non-believers, sceptics and churchgoers, and charts a brilliantly considered and impassioned path to Christianity - a Mere Christianity for the twenty-first century.
Making Sense of God: a prequel to Keller's A Reason for God: a thoughtful look at the role faith and religion can play in modern lives.
The Prodigal God: focused on Jesus' best-known parable - the prodigal son - as a paradigm for the central messages of Christianity: grace, hope and salvation.
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.
