This review is from: King's Cross: The Story of the World in the Life of Jesus (Hardcover)
Whether you're still looking into the claims of Jesus or you're a seasoned follower, this book has much to offer. To the former, Tim Keller offers enough historical context and explanation to make clear sense of Jesus' identity and mission. He further makes excellent use of his skills as a Christian apologist (cf perhaps his best book 'The Reason for God') to help both seeker and Christian alike see Jesus' uniqueness with absolute clarity. To the latter, the most interesting element in this book is how Keller draws together Old Testament scripture with the material he is using from Mark's Gospel to paint a seamless picture of God's purposes from beginning to end - and moreover, these are not simply the usual links that are often made.
Above and beyond the above, this book is actually a great read. I found myself underlining and highlighting many points, not just because they were either thought-provoking or inspiring, but also because Keller writes with such clarity and self-deprecating transparency. This is certainly one of the best Christian books I have read in a long while and I would heartily recommend it to anyone.
