The untold story of the people, the books, the lectures, and ultimately the God who formed and shaped the life of the late Timothy Keller.

Millions have read books and listened to sermons by Timothy Keller. But who impacted his own thinking, and what shaped his spiritual growth and ministry priorities? With full access to Keller's personal notes and sermons—as well as exclusive interviews with family members and longtime friends—Collin Hansen takes readers behind the scenes of one of the 21st century's most influential church leaders.

For the first time, Hansen introduces readers to Keller's early years: the home where he learned to tell stories from the trees, the church where he learned to care for souls, and the city that lifted him to the international fame he never wanted.

This unique biography will allow you to:

  • Understand the principles and practices that allowed Keller to synthesize so many different influences in a coherent ministry.
  • Take the best of Keller's preaching and teaching to meet emerging challenges in the 21st century.
  • Develop your own historical, theological, and cultural perspectives to shape your leadership.

The story of Timothy Keller is the story of his spiritual and intellectual influences, from the woman who taught him how to read the Bible to the professor who taught him to preach Jesus from every text to the philosopher who taught him to see beneath society's surface.
