His Spiritual and Intellectual Formation
Millions have read books and listened to sermons by Timothy Keller. But which people and what events shaped his own thinking and spiritual growth? With free access to Keller's personal notes and sermons—as well as interviews with family members and longtime friends—Collin Hansen gives you understanding of one of the 21st century's most influential church leaders.
Spend any time around Timothy Keller and you'll learn what he's reading, what he's learning, what he's seeing. The story of Timothy Keller is the story of his spiritual and intellectual influences, from the woman who taught him how to read the Bible to the professor who taught him to preach Jesus from every text to the philosopher who taught him to see beneath society's surface.
Hansen introduces readers to Keller's early years: the home where he grew up, the church where he learned to care for souls, and the city that lifted him to the international fame he never wanted.
