Review

Praise for "Encounters with Jesus"
"Keller s work belongs on the bookshelf of every serious Bible student. It is not a quick read, but, instead should be savored like fine wine, one sip at a time to glean the full impact of his life-changing message."
-Examiner.com

Praise for Timothy Keller and his books:
"Tim Keller's ministry in New York City is leading a generation of seekers and skeptics toward belief in God. I thank God for him."
Billy Graham
Unlike most suburban megachurches, much of Redeemer is remarkably traditional. What is not traditional is Dr. Keller s skill in speaking the language of his urbane audience Observing Dr. Keller s professorial pose on stage, it is easy to understand his appeal.
"The New York Times"
Fifty years from now, if evangelical Christians are widely known for their love of cities, their commitment to mercy and justice, and their love of their neighbors, Tim Keller will be remembered as a pioneer of the new urban Christians.
"Christianity Today Magazine"
With intellectual, brimstone-free sermons that manage to cite Woody Allen alongside Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, Keller draws some 5,000 young followers every Sunday. Church leaders see him as a model of how to evangelize urban centers across the country, and Keller has helped plant 50 gospel-based Christian churches around New York plus another 50 from San Francisco to London.
"New York Magazine"
Theologically rich and philosophically informed, yet accessible and filled with practical wisdom.
"Cardus" on" Every Good Endeavor"
This book is for us all and through its reading it can change and reshape your entire outlook on your life.
SarahMac on "Every Good Endeavor"
It s a great resource to equip you to speak with your secular friends; to show them why the Christian understanding of marriage is not only a tremendous blessing, it s the only one that works.
"ChristianPost.com" on "The Meaning of Marriage"
"The Meaning of Marriage" is incredibly rich with wisdom and insight that will leave the reader, whether single or married, feeling uplifted. While the book is filled with expertly selected biblical verses, nonreligious readers willing to try on these observations may find answers not only to the meaning of marriage but to that even bigger question the meaning of life itself.
"The Washington Times "on "The Meaning of Marriage"
This is the book I give to all my friends who are serious spiritual seekers or skeptics.
Rick Warren, author of "The Purpose Driven Life," on "The Reason for God"
Keller mines material from literary classics, philosophy, anthropology and a multitude of other disciplines to make an intellectually compelling case for God. Written for skeptics and the believers who love them, the book draws on the author's encounters as founding pastor of New York's booming Redeemer Presbyterian Church ["The Reason for God"] should serve both as testimony to the author's encyclopedic learning and as a compelling overview of the current debate on faith for those who doubt and for those who want to reevaluate what they believe, and why.
"Publishers Weekly "on "The Reason for God"
World has briefly reviewed about 200 books over the past year. Many stand out, but one in particular is likely to change many lives and ways of thinking. World s Book of the Year is Tim Keller s "The Reason for God."
Marvin Olasky on "The Reason for God"

"

Praise for"Prayer"
..".Keller provides a contextually rich guide and companion to prayer."
-"Kirkus"
..".if you follow Keller into the arsenal, you will be powerfully equipped to overcome the world/flesh/Devil and see your prayers for kingdom advance answered by almighty God. And if you follow Keller to the banqueting table, you will increasingly feast on new and old treasures of awe and intimacy with your heavenly Father."

Timothy Keller is among the best and most helpful of modern Christian writers. (His 'Preaching' is an excellent textbook) This is a careful look at what prayer is and why it matters. He organises his writing into five main sections: desiring prayer, understanding prayer, learning prayer, deepening prayer and doing prayer. Keller always writes from an evangelical perspective and that is a strength here. Prayer does not get reduced to metaphysics and meditation, even though it includes the latter. Here is a much-needed reminder of why prayer should be at the heart of Christian life and Christian worship in its widest sense. Easy to read and clear to follow, the author has given us a practical book about a necessary subject. This is not prayer as ritual, this is prayer as relationship. I have no hesitation in recommending it both to the person exploring Christianity for the first time and to the mature Christian who wants to learn more.

This a must-have book on prayer. It is readable, clear in meaning, a book on prayer which is easily understood without being condescending to anyone. A log-awaited help to anyone wanting to understand the depths as well as the 'how to'. I would recommend it to all who want an excellent help on the subject - whether you are an academic type of person or not. A most useful and useable book. It may be a little dearer than some books on prayer as it is hardback but is well-worth the outlay.
I have read many books on prayer over the years. John Bunyan and Don Carson have been always helpful, but 'Prayer' by Timothy Keller surpasses even these two in my view. This is the book I have been looking for for a long time, and I am most grateful that Timothy Keller has been led to write it. It will instruct me and be of great value for years to come.

Best book on prayer I've read. Destined to become a classic. So many insights. There is the need to align my thoughts with God's, in prayer, understanding the intent of the "Lord's prayer". There are thoughtful reflections from the great reformers, perhaps based on their applications of Jesus' teaching on prayer. There are suggested prayer and Bible study routines, because prayer should be a response to God's word. There is insight into the nature of petition, as prayer intended by God to "change things", all the while resting in God, who alone changes things as He wills. Thus petition should end in peace and praise. Even as I've applied its suggestions along the way, I've experienced step changes in my walk with God. Thank you to the author, and the Author.

There are few subjects Christians find more intimidating than prayer, an activity so vital to our faith yet one we all feel we often fail at regularly.

Timothy Keller's book is one of the most helpful I have come across on the subject of prayer. The books is a rich survey of classic reformed teaching on prayer, drawing heavily at times upon the work of John Owen, John Calvin and others. But in classic Keller fashion, the author is not afraid to consider the wisdom and practices of those from outside his own tradition, and there are fascinating quotes from a number of writers and scholars from the Middle Ages here and there. It being a Keller book, of course, C S Lewis is mentioned several times, and as usual provides terrific comments.

But this is not an "academic" book: having defined what prayer is and considered the practices and reflections of heavyweights like Owen and Calvin, Keller spends plenty of time on the "how to" of prayer in the final third, and he is, at all times, humble, engaging, clear and enjoyable. The book is convicting, as any good book on prayer will be, but it is also deeply helpful. Above all, it leaves the reader with a desire to dust down and continue to work at prayer, no matter what past experiences may be.

A highlight was Keller's section on meditation, what he describes as the bridge between Bible study and prayer. Scripture should fuel our prayers, and meditation is the key to connecting the two, a practice many modern evangelicals are not engaged in. Keller's love of the psalms also comes through, providing as they do the perfect pattern of genuine prayer (and praise).

Overall, a terrific book on a critical subject, which surely makes it a must for every serious-minded Christian, as well as anyone else interested to know why their soul prompts them to pray, even if they don't why.

This is a very good book on prayer. It addresses our issues with prayer and why we struggle, and then develops insights into the why of prayer, but as it does so, it introduces us to practical steps in developing regular purposeful prayer. The book then goes on to develop further why we pray before giving more guidance on how we do it.
The book is easy to read and at times very moving. I found the section that discussed the cost of prayer familiar yet still powerful. We are urged to persevere and, if this is your experience, to press on from dryness to joy. The Scriptures are the springboard for prayer and the book gives useful insights and tools to develop meditative reflections on the Word to inspire and motivate us in our prayer.
Of course, the book centres on the who of prayer too. This is not a book to inspire a dry intellectual prayer life but to meet with the God of the universe who wants you and I to spend time in his presence.
