The Good Stuff: Tim Keller

I found my self getting ready to send two of my friends links to the same sermon today, and then I thought, “hey… I have a blog for this kind of stuff”,  so here is my recommendation for your daily sermon.

Tim Keller is a really good teacher.  He is someone who you feel smart for just understanding.  Listening to his sermons over the last two years has really stretched my husband and me.

You can subscribe to his sermons on his church’s web site for those who are hooked, but for the financially challenged, there is lots of free Keller out there to be had.

Reformissionary has a really great Tim Keller Resource Page with links to tons of his sermons.

His sermons on Praying our Tears and Praying our Fears were really wonderful for me when we were going through the hard stuff.  If you are struggling with pain (or fear, or the fear of pain) now, take some time and take a listen.

If not, save it for later, because as C.S. Lewis noted, to open yourself to love is to open yourself to pain.

I want to God and what He really has to say to us and especially what He really wants from me. I approach Scripture from the Reformed perspective of Luther and Calvin and those that followed them, and encourage lively debate here at Daily Discernment.

  1. Happy New Year, my friend!

    Thanks for the link on Keller. His teaching has informed my life in many ways. I have some health problems so am esp. grateful for these messages. God’s great timing.

    Love you,
    Judy

  2. What a treat to find someone writing about Tim! I’m actually a member of Redeemer in New York. His messages are really in a league all their own… Being raised in the church, sometimes it feels like I’ve “heard it all” but Tim’s teaching is unique to me in that I have yet to walk away from a sermon of his without learning something new. One more testament to the fact that God does indeed continue to speak.

    Blessings!
