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.

    A very thought provoking, well written treatment of the balance the church needs to follow in this present time.

    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.
