Description

Renowned pastor and New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller writes the book his readers have been asking for: A year-long daily devotional, beautifully designed with gilt edges and a gold ribbon marker. The Book of Psalms is known as the Bible's songbook--Jesus knew all 150 psalms intimately, and relied on them to face every situation, including his death. Two decades ago, Tim Keller began reading the entire Book of Psalms every month. The Songs of Jesus is based on his accumulated years of study, insight, and inspiration recorded in his prayer journals. Kathy Keller came to reading the psalms as a support during an extended illness. Together they have distilled the meaning of each verse, inviting readers into the vast wisdom of the psalms. If you have no devotional life yet, this book is a wonderful way to start. If you already spend time in study and prayer, understanding every verse of the psalms will bring you a new level of intimacy with God, unlocking your purpose within God's kingdom. Look out for Timothy Keller's latest book, God's Wisdom for Navigating Life, available from Viking in Fall 2017.show more

Review quote

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."-The Gospel Coalition 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" "show more
