Description

New York pastor Timothy Keller is known for his ability to connect a deep understanding of the Bible with contemporary thought and the practical issues we all face in our lives. My Rock; My Refuge - his first devotional, consisting of all new material - offers inspiration for every day of the year, based on the book of Psalms. Here Keller helps readers apply the principles he laid out in his book Prayer: Experiencing Awe and Intimacy with God. He walks them verse by verse through the entire Psalter, the one biblical book designed to teach us how to pray, how to spiritually handle every possible life situation, and how to actually know God.This title is published in the US as The Songs of Jesus.show more

About Timothy Keller

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.show more

Review quote

In "A year of daily devotions in the Psalms" - My Rock; My Refuge (Hodder and Stoughton, hardback, GBP12.99) - founder of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Man- hattan, USA, Timothy Keller, with Kathy Keller, has adapted the 150 Psalms - what Martin Luther dubbed "a mini Bible" - into 365 daily readings. While the au- thor accepts that the Psalms are the "divinely inspired devotional book", he maintains that most readers need the help of a guide, if only on an initial reading, and so each daily quotation from a Psalm is accompanied by a reflection and a prayer. Five pages of notes list the many sources drawn upon for this supporting material, including C S Lewis, George Herbert, John Newton and Charles Wesley. The Methodist Recorder The book was the main cover of the magazine and was the featured book for the publication. CLC World Each devotion is for a specific date... a passage from a psalm is printed in full, followed by a brief meditation... readers of the book are advised to use it to prompt their keeping of a daily prayer journal. The Church Times Here is a daily devotional book which will undoubtedly widen the horizons and the hopes of readers, through some of the finest religious poetry (which is what the Psalms are) ever written, a pinnacle of Jewish worship which all Christians can share. The Irish Catholic Timothy specialises in connecting the ancient truths of the Bible with our everyday issues ... This would be an excellent gift for someone who is drawn to the poetic books of the Bible or for those who seek some routine in their time with God each day. iBelieve Magazine Every day there are five or six verses of a Psalm, followed by a comment and a prayer. It could be a useful tool for family prayers. Ministry Today I am a sucker for books like this - something to keep me on the biblical straight and narrow...I love this book. Reflections Magazine Short, insightful devotions, packed with wisdom and practical application - a good daily diet! Together Magazineshow more
