Description

The resurrection of Jesus is at the heart of the Christian faith, bringing God’s power – which will some day heal and renew the world – into our lives now. That power is here only partially, but substantially; and this gives Christians a realistic, but irrepressible, hope. It is a hope for change in our lives and in our society; a hope that changes Christians in every way, shaping every aspect of our lives.

But it is only together with the cross that we see the particular way resurrection hope shapes us. We are delivered by a Saviour who triumphed through weakness and loss; who came to riches through becoming poor; and to exalted life through the experience of death. And having coming to new life by admitting our own weakness and inability to save ourselves, we live the rest of our lives according to this pattern: the way up is to go down; the way to true power and influence is to serve; the way to be truly rich is to give all we have; the way to real happiness is to work for the happiness of others.

Hope in Times of Fear unlocks the meaning of both the cross and Jesus’ resurrection. Here the central message of the Christian faith is revealed – with unshakable belief, piercing insight and a profound message of hope for the world.

Other information

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 5,000 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 SCEPTICISM 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.

“I gained so much from this.”

Right at the outset can I say that I am a Tim Keller fan. He has written some wonderful books ( where does he get the time?!)
So, I bought this book both because it was Tim Keller, and because I wanted an appropriate book to read in Lent, and look forward to Easter. And I wasn’t disappointed.
It was clearly recently written, as he sets the context of fear in a Covid world, and as he has been facing his own cancer. It has missed the war between Ukraine and Russia, because that is so recent, but the subject of the book is even more relevant given the global concerns that are arising from this.
In one respect this book is like his others…I always learn something new from him. But in another respect it was perhaps more detailed, and with more biblical references to back up what he is saying. Indeed, he admits himself that he felt closer to God writing this that any other of his books because the subject was so personal to him.
In terms of what I learnt, there was a great deal. The point that struck home the most was that most of the bible accounts of Easter focus primarily on the passion and sacrifice of Jesus. Far more than on the Resurrection. Yet it was the Resurrection that led to God’s power and new life being released for us. So this book focuses on the Resurrection, and the wonderful things that were poured out after this.
For the other things you will learn you will have to read the book for yourself. It is worth it.
