Timothy J. Keller (born September 23, 1950) is an American pastor, theologian and Christian apologist. He is best known as the founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, New York, and the author of The New York Times bestselling books The Prodigal God: Recovering the Heart of the Christian Faith (2008), Prayer: Experiencing Awe and Intimacy with God (2014), and The Reason for God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism (2008).
Why would God allow suffering? If he is loving, how could he send people to hell? Why does Christianity have to be so exclusive? In The Reason for God, Keller looks at questions and objections he has frequently encountered over the years as a pastor in the heart of New York City. After responding to objections, he makes a case for the Christian faith and the reasons for God.
Marriage is an ancient practice, but there are numerous misconceptions surrounding its nature and purpose. Author and pastor Timothy Keller seeks to clarify what marriage is really about.
The commonly prescribed paths to freedom are dead-ends because they begin and end in self-obsession. Timothy Keller proposes an alternative that’s counterintuitive and relieving.
Who do you resonate with most: the runaway sibling, so low he’s willing to languish in the company of pigs, or the well-behaved child, so tall on his high horse he can’t even see the pigs in their pen? Perhaps, you simply haven’t thought about it. The beloved “Parable of the Prodigal Son,” as told by Jesus in Luke 15, has been recast so frequently that it sounds far less poignant to our contemporary ears. Theologian Timothy Keller reasserts the urgency of this parable, proving that its epic pierces much deeper than a story of combative brothers. Rather, its tale portrays how we often mischaracterize God and how we might learn to recognize his grace once again—regardless of how sinful (or sinless) we think we are.
