Product Description

Many pastors struggle to translate their theological beliefs into fruitful ministry in the places they are called to reach.

It's not enough to simply know what to believe (theology) or, on the other hand, how to do ministry (methodology)---they need something in between. They need help thinking about ministry in a culture that no longer believes Christianity is a force for good, let alone the source of ultimate revealed truth in the person of Christ.

Center Church, a collection of twelve essays by Timothy Keller, outlines a theological vision for ministry that is organized around three core commitments:

1. Gospel-centered: The gospel of grace in Jesus Christ changes everything, from our hearts to
our community to the world. It completely reshapes the content, tone and strategy of all that we do.
2. City-centered: With a positive approach toward our culture, we learn to affirm that cities are
wonderful, strategic and underserved places for gospel ministry.
3. Movement-centered: Instead of building our own tribe, we seek the prosperity and peace of
our community as we are led by the Holy Spirit.

Publisher's Description

Today many pastors are struggling to adapt to a post-Christian culture without abandoning orthodox theology. How do we communicate the concepts of grace and substitutionary atonement in our globalized culture and context?

In Center Church, Timothy Keller offers challenging insights and provocative questions based on over twenty years of ministry in New York City. This book outlines a theological vision for ministry - applying classic doctrines to our time and place - organized around three core commitments: • Gospel-centered: The gospel of grace in Jesus Christ changes everything, from our hearts to our community to the world. It completely reshapes the content, tone and strategy of all that we do. • City-centered: With a positive approach toward our culture, we learn to affirm that cities are wonderful, strategic and underserved places for gospel ministry. • Movement-centered: Instead of building our own tribe, we seek the prosperity and peace of our community as we are led by the Holy Spirit.

"In this important book, Tim Keller unpacks the gospel and gently but firmly reminds us that it is nonnegotiable. At the same time, he enables us to think through how we can responsibly interact with the culture, how we can - indeed, must - appreciate good things within it, and how we can firmly and faithfully apply the gospel to it." - D.A. Carson, research professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

    If you like Tim Keller, you will definitely be pleased with this one. I have not read the entire book yet, but the parts I have scanned so far, have already been extremely insightful. While I have not read all of his books, in my opinion, this could be his best (and most comprehensive) book on ministry I have read. He unleashes his vast knowledge and experience in ministry that I have not found anywhere else.
