Renowned pastor and New York Times-bestselling author Timothy Keller explores the nature of evil in the world with The Great Enemy, the sixth part of his Encounters with Jesus e-book series.
The Gospels are full of encounters that made a profound impact on those who spoke with Jesus Christ. In his Encounters with Jesusseries, Timothy Keller, pastor of New York's Redeemer Presbyterian Church and New York Times-bestselling author of The Reason for God, shows how those encounters can still have a deep effect on us today. The baptism of Jesus and his temptation in the desert are two well-known experiences of Christ, yet it is often forgotten that they go together. In The Great Enemy, Keller explores the contrast between Jesus' encounters with God and Satan. He explains why evil is deeper, more nuanced, and more complex than we think, and how we can confront and weaken its destructive force in our lives.
This and the other nine in the series make up the complete Encounters With Jesus: Unexpected Answers to Life's Biggest Questions.
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.
