Publisher's Summary

In Encounters with Jesus, New York Times best-selling author and renowned pastor Timothy Keller explores Jesus' answers to life's biggest questions by showing what happened to those who met Jesus personally.

What is my purpose in life? Who am I meant to be? How can I live a successful life? Why is there so much wrong with our world today? Am I part of the problem? What can I do to help change that?

These are the big, seemingly unanswerable questions that everyone must ask and then answer in life.

Jesus changed the lives of nearly every person he met in the Gospels. These were powerful experiences that can have a profound effect on us today and help explain not only different aspects of Christianity but the deep questions of life itself. Timothy Keller highlights 10 of these encounters, including his meeting a sceptical student, a religious insider, an outcast, even Satan himself, and proves how invaluable the lessons from these encounters are for contemporary listeners.

Challenging some reasons for disbelieving Jesus

Well structured, persuasive argumentation of key biblical claims. Good analyses of key New Testament episodes in the life stories of Jesus.

Great wisdom from God’s word

Every chapter is wonderful wisdom for Christians. However, it’s not only for Christians, it addresses the skeptics as well or those who are spiritually searching. There’s so much to learn in this book I will probably have to listen to it multiple times :)

Excellent understanding. Compassionate delivery.

This is a fine example of accurate and compassionate Bible teaching. The depth of insight never got in the way of clear communication and care for the listeners, particularly non-Christians.
