Book Review of Tim Keller’s “King’s Cross: The Story of the World in the Life of Jesus”
|November 15, 2011||Posted by Rick Hogaboam under Book Recommendations, Book Reviews|
I haven’t been disappointed with anything I have read from Keller and have always thought that his books were well worth the cost and deserving to remain in the bookshelf for future reference. “King’s Cross” didn’t disappoint.
“King’s Cross” is a survey through the Gospel of Mark that faithfully represents the person of Jesus Christ as Mark would have us understand him. I found myself pausing for prayer and praise as Keller made some penetrating observations and applications from Mark’s text about Christ. I think that any reader would glean much from this volume – from the new believer to the veteran believer.
It is often recommended that new believers read through the Gospel of John for its accessibility; however I have often thought Mark to be a better Gospel to read for the new believer. I would strongly recommend giving a new believer Keller’s book and encourage them to read through Mark’s Gospel.
