King's Cross: The Story of the World in the Life of Jesus | [Timothy Keller]

King's Cross: The Story of the World in the Life of Jesus

King's Cross is Timothy Keller's revelatory look at the life of Christ as told in the Gospel of Mark. There have been many biographies of Jesus, but few will be as anticipated as one by Keller, the man Newsweek calls "a C. S. Lewis for the 21st century." In it, Keller shows how the story of Jesus is at once cosmic, historical, and personal, calling each of us to look anew at our relationship with God. Like Keller's other books it has tremendous crossover appeal, but it is also ideal for the faithful.

    "Narrator voice -- not quite Tim Keller"

    The book, "King's Cross," is excellent for a compelling overview of amazing treasures that are often overlooked in the Biblical book of Mark. A particularly relevant resource as we are approaching Easter 2011.

    I am used to the author's voice through audio files of his sermons. So I had to adjust to hearing Lloyd James' voice and rhythm of narration. Once I focused on the work itself rather than the sound of the narration, I found Mr. James' version to be fine -- just not what I expected at first listen.

    A great resource -- just don't expect Tim Keller's voice.

    Story
    "Jesus for Real People"

    When I read most Christian Books, it feels more like an overt sales pitch - the author is trying to convert me to his or her way of thinking, but the funny thing is that most Christian authors also communicate in such a way that if you don't already share their presuppositions it is difficult to thoughtfully consider what they are saying.

    Timothy Keller is an author for "everyman" (and woman). He writes in an engaging style that invited me to consider what he is saying in a language that normal people speak. He presents a Jesus for real people.

    What made the experience of listening to King's Cross the most enjoyable?

    Keller brings depth, richness, and insight to Mark's Gospel. He has a gift of simply and powerfully communicating incredibly deep philosophical/spiritual/theological ideas. I will listen to this audio book again, it's that good.

    "Exciting things about the life of Jesus"
    If you could sum up King's Cross in three words, what would they be?

    great, exceptional supberb


    What was one of the most memorable moments of King's Cross?

    this is the first audible book that I have listened too. It was great to listen to it as I drove, or as I cooked dinner or as I well you get the picture. I used the book mark feature on the kindle fire several times to be able to go back to the spot that was inspiring.


    What about Lloyd James’s performance did you like?

    He was clear and concise

    "A wonderful walk through the Gospel of Christ."

    Simple, clear, and compelling. Keller takes us to Jesus and holds us close enough that we can't help but be in awe once again of the power of the Gospel.

    Story
    "Profound and intelligent look at the life of Jesus"
    If you could sum up King's Cross in three words, what would they be?

    Thorough, Relavant, Fresh


    What was one of the most memorable moments of King's Cross?

    The description of the girl following an invisible thread leading her on a scarry journey. I powerful picture of what it is like following the king. We don't know where he is leading us, but we know it will get us home.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened to the book in parts. There was much rich content to pause and chew on.


    Any additional comments?

    When I gave the hard copy of this book to a deep-thinking teacher, he was very encouraged. He said he wanted to read it again to get more out of it.

    "Droning on"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The style of the readership.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The material


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He took a very interesting subject and mono-toned it. It's putting me to sleep.


    Any additional comments?

    Timothy Keller really knows his stuff, but it would be better to have someone with enthusiasm read his material.

    "Average"
    Would you try another book from Timothy Keller and/or Lloyd James?

    Not from Tim, the content was average - not a lot of insight. However, the narration was good.

    Story
    "not close to CS Lewis"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    If he believes in Susbtitutionary sacrifice. But CS Lewis did not believe in that theory. And this book abounds in that direction, very boring trying to convince with extravagant arguments but very unbiblical.


    What was most disappointing about Timothy Keller’s story?

    I thought I was going to hear more about CS Lewis theory on the perfect penitent. But instead is a detriment of that biblical an excellent approach.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The two first chapters about God's love and necessity of love. Also I did like the way it explains the connections with The Chronicles of Narnia.


    What else would you have wanted to know about Timothy Keller’s life?

    Studies degrees and how he applies his knowledge to ministry.


    Any additional comments?

    Tell him to write about The Perfect Penitent.
