#FridayReads: “Loving the City” By Tim Keller

Dr. Timothy Keller is the founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City. He and his wife, Kathy, have grown the church to over 5,000 in weekly attendance.  Dr. Keller also is Chairman of Redeemer City to City which helps launch new churches, and he has written over 20 books. Two of his books have been on the New York Times best sellers list and have sold more than 1 million copies. His heart for cities shines through in his book Loving the City: Doing Balanced, Gospel-Centered Ministry in Your City.

In this book, Keller writes about how we can communicate to the current culture in a way that is both respectful and challenging. He shows how vital cities are by displaying them as a theme throughout the Bible. Whether or not your ministry is in a city, you will need to think about the city when creating a theological vision that engages the people you are trying to reach. This book will help you to minister to your culture, wherever you are.
