The people who met Jesus Christ in person faced the same big life questions we face today. Like most of us, the answers handed down to them didn’t seem to work in the real world. But when they met Jesus, things started to change immediately for them. It seems he not only had the answers — he was the answer. In Encounters with Jesus, Timothy Keller shows how the central events and meetings in Jesus’ life can change our own lives forever.

Praise for Encounters with Jesus
“I highly recommend this work for anyone (christians and non-christians) seeking to truly encounter Jesus.” – Evangelical Book Review
“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
“Every Good Endeavor will soon become a classic on faith and work, not only because it’s intelligent, but because it’s accessible… Drawing on decades of study and ministry, Every Good Endeavor may soon become one of the most important contemporary books on faith and work.” – Comment Magazine
Like so many life issues for Christians, the word balance is instructive when it comes to work. Every Good Endeavor deftly explains how we can relish and enjoy our work while honoring God and serving others, all the while avoiding the extremes of negativity on the one hand and idolatry on the other.” – The Gospel Coalition
“Most people sitting in the pews of our churches on a Sunday morning spend more time in the workplace than anywhere else. Yet we can too easily make following Christ a matter of personal devotions and church activity… This is great book on an important area that is too often neglected.” – Tim Chester
