I want to be Tim Keller when I grow up....

I really do. Since I was turned on to him a couple of years ago, I've found almost no one that I admire more in his preaching and in his ministry. I think I identify with the way he does ministry in a very urban context while remaining quite orthodox in his theology. I also like his ability to converse with others, disagree strongly, and yet still remain on good terms with them.

Dr. Keller has a new book out this week. It is called The Reason for God. It is only his first or second book ever (I know him through his sermons that I download from his church's website). I don't have the book or anything, but I'm not going to lie: my expectations are huge! I'm expecting something along the lines of Mere Christianity out of this little book, when I do finally get it.

By the way, you can read a very short article about Dr. Keller in Newsweek. Check it out HERE.

Tim Challies has a book review on the new book HERE.

You can also see what Andrew Jones had to say HERE.

And, you can find Dr. Keller's church online HERE.
