Publisher's Summary

In Encounters With Jesus, New York Times bestselling author and renowned pastor Timothy Keller shows how people were changed when they met Jesus personally - and how we can be changed today through our own encounter with him.

What is my purpose in life? What is a good life? Why is there so much wrong with our world? What can I do to help make it right?

These are some of the big questions that everyone must answer. And any lasting change in our lives will start with a change to one or more of our answers to these questions.

Jesus changed the life of every person he met in the Gospels, through powerful experiences and words that led them to unexpected and transforming answers to their big questions. These conversations can still address our questions and doubts today. Encounters with Jesus focuses on several of these meetings - including with a skeptical student, a religious insider, an outcast, even Jesus' mother - and tells how the central events in Jesus' life provide ways for us to encounter him again or for the first time.

    "Life changing explanations. . ."

    Timothy Keller has taken my understanding of the life and finished work of JESUS CHRIST to an entirely different level. . .I am deeply grateful for the way Mr. Keller has allowed GOD to use his life and writing to bring much glory to the LORD.

    "I discovered this book just at the right time!"

    I am at a stage in my spiritual walk where I am dealing with belief, trust, ego, doubt and what they mean. I have never received an understanding of the scriptures like this book opened me up to. I have never had as meaningful an encounter of the nature of Jesus, as I did from this book. There is so beauty in the bible prose, so many layers of absolute meaningful symbolisms and truths that I am now aware of!

    Thanks Tim Keller for writing this book. Thanks to the narrator for doing such a good job! And thank you God for the line of writers you inspire and give revelation to. I see the place you are bringing me to and I'll keep pressing on!

    "Very deep"
    What made the experience of listening to Encounters with Jesus the most enjoyable?

    Lloyd James was an excellent narrator, making the author's intent very clear. Keller's writing is crisp and gets to the points quickly with little fanfare, yet thoroughly lays out the foundation for his perspective. It's plain to me he's done his homework well.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Encounters with Jesus?

    When Keller made clear the real role of the Holy Spirit as the "Second Advocate" and explaining clearly Jesus's role as the First Advocate and how the two Advocate roles are interconnected to make bring me to a spiritual bonding with God.


    What does Lloyd James bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is accurate and vocally clear, while bringing a sense of ownership and empathy to his role as narrator.

    "Quintessential Keller"

    Great stuff, but I couldn't get over someone else's voice reading it. I've heard him preach online too much for that. I love hearing about Jesus an the gospel

    "Relevant Jesus."

    Keller does a masterful job making Jesus relevant to us today. He introduces the Christ who wants a personal relationship us and who answers life's biggest questions.

    "Engaging, Biblical, practical"

    I have known Tim Keller since before he was published and am glad to say that he has done a great job of bringing Biblical truths to many skeptics in a winsome, erudite way. This book is certainly one of his finest yet.
