Publisher's Summary

Pastor, preacher, and New York Times best-selling author Timothy Keller's wisdom on communicating the Christian faith from the pulpit as well as from the coffee shop.

Most Christians - including pastors - struggle to talk about their faith in a way that applies the power of the Christian Gospel to change people's lives. Timothy Keller is known for his insightful, down-to-earth sermons and talks that help people understand themselves, encounter Jesus, and apply the Bible to their lives. In this accessible guide for pastors and laypeople alike, Keller helps listeners learn to present the Christian message of grace in a more engaging, passionate, and compassionate way.

Critic Reviews

"Tim Keller's ministry in New York City is leading a generation of seekers and skeptics toward belief in God. I thank God for him." (Billy Graham)
"Unlike most suburban megachurches, much of Redeemer is remarkably traditional. What is not traditional is Dr. Keller's skill in speaking the language of his urbane audience.... Observing Dr. Keller's professorial pose on stage, it is easy to understand his appeal." ( The New York Times)

"Fifty years from now, if evangelical Christians are widely known for their love of cities, their commitment to mercy and justice, and their love of their neighbors, Tim Keller will be remembered as a pioneer of the new urban Christians." ( 

Christianity Today Magazine)

Not just for preachers

This is a great resource for teachers, preachers, and anyone who wants to share the Gospel better. Pastor Keller does an excellent job in reminding us to not only live in Christ and share that truth but also he reveals how Christ is evident in all of scripture. I ended up downloading the Kindle version so that I could highlight and bookmark areas for me to go back on.

Much more than a book about preaching

This book provides plenty of practical advice about preaching, but is more than a book about preaching. Keller provides insight that is valuable for any person (and, of course, Christian)

Best Keller ever! Reader is lacking

I have read a lot of Keller's writing and I always find it insightful, clear, and Christ-centered. Many of the themes in his other books have been tested and verified in his sermons and talks. As an avid listener of Keller's preaching, the content of his writing is very familiar. Not so with this work. Still insightful and clear, 'Preaching' was brand new to me. I am a layperson, and I think this work is written to preachers. But I was enriched and I took away huge, practical perspectives for my own devotion and study. I needed this.
I read along as I listened, so I noticed the reader making mistakes. He also mispronounced words, which was mildly annoying. It was bearable, but I will make a note to avoid Sean Pratt's reading in the future.

Solid, insightful, biblical

A refreshing departure from 'how-to' books, Keller emphasizes the power of the Word itself to change hearts. The involvement of technique - connecting with the congregation - is right on and not overbearing. Highly recommended for lay people and clergy alike.

Best book on modern preaching.

I'm very impressed with the content of this book and found it very helpful. A balance on what a preacher ought to be and how he must craft a message.

One of the Best Books on Preaching

I’ve read several books on preaching. This is one of the best. Keller leads readers to understand the importance of both expositing the text while also preaching in a manner that both your church and potential visitors can benefit. This book will is accessible for new and aspiring pastors while also being beneficial for seasoned veterans. He balances theoretical points throughout with numerous examples of implementing what he’s talking about.

Best overview of Keller’s work

This book is so much bigger than its title. It is about preaching, but is so much more. Great for anyone who has a leadership position and wants to know how to speak the greatness of God’s love into people hearts in specific and tangible ways. This is by far my favorite Keller book which says something since all his books are my favorite. I would recommend a once a year read for encouragement and assessment. It’s so helpful!
