What is my purpose in life? Who am I meant to be? How can I live a successful life? Why is there so much wrong with our world today? Am I part of the problem? What can I do to help change that? These are the big, seemingly unanswerable questions that everyone must ask and then answer in life. In Encounters With Jesus, New York Times-bestselling author and rewned pastor Timothy Keller explores Jesus' answers to life's biggest questions by showing what happened to those who met Jesus personally. Jesus changed the lives of nearly every person he met in the Gospels. These were powerful experiences that can have a profound effect on us today and help explain t only different aspects of Christianity, but the deep questions of life itself. Timothy Keller highlights ten of these encounters, including his meeting a sceptical student, a religious insider, an outcast, even Satan himself, and proves how invaluable the lessons from these encounters are for contemporary readers.
Timothy Keller was born and raised in Pennsylvania, and educated at Bucknell University, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and Westminster Theological Seminary. He moved to Manhattan in 1989 to found Redeemer Presbyterian Church, which has now grown to three distinct congregations and birthed the church-planting Redeemer City to City programme. Tim is the author of numerous bestselling books, including The Reason for God, The Prodigal God and most recently Walking with God through Pain and Suffering, and the co-author, with his wife Kathy, of The Meaning of Marriage.
