Lots of exciting things have happened recently!
Tim Keller and Redeemer announced the New City Catechism:
“A joint adult and children’s catechism consisting of 52 questions and answers adapted by Timothy Keller and Sam Shammas from the Reformation catechisms.” The New City Catechism officially debuts on October 15, but you can check out the website and download the free iPad app today.
Sally Lloyd-Jones’ new book, Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing, was released on Tuesday of this week – Foreword by Timothy Keller and Illustrated by Jago. If you like The Jesus Storybook Bible you will love this devotional book. Watch this video and get a glimpse.
Last week our friend Tullian Tchividjian released his new book, Glorious Ruin. “In this world, one thing is certain: Everybody hurts. Suffering may take the form of tragedy, heartbreak, or addiction. Or it could be something more mundane (but no less real) like resentment, loneliness, or disappointment. But there’s unfortunately no such thing as a painless life. In Glorious Ruin, best-selling author Tullian Tchividjian takes an honest and refreshing look at the reality of suffering, the ways we tie ourselves in knots trying to deal with it, and the comfort of the gospel for those who can’t seem to fix themselves—or others.”
Tim Keller’s first book, Ministries of Mercy, is now available on Kindle. This book is actually a great follow-up book to Generous Justice, which is now available in paperback. Remember that first book doesn’t mean worst book, and older doesn’t mean irrelevant.
“Love and Lust”, the latest Timothy Keller Sermon Podcast is also available for listening this week. You don’t want to miss this one.
Have a great weekend!
In a work world that is increasingly competitive and insecure, people often have nagging questions: Why am I doing this work? Why is it so hard? And is there anything I can do about it?
Tim Keller, pastor of New York’s Redeemer Presbyterian Church and New York Times bestselling author of The Reason for God, has taught and counseled students, young professionals, and senior leaders on the subject of work and calling for more than twenty years. Now he puts his insights into a book for readers everywhere, giving biblical perspectives on such pressing questions as:
• What is the purpose of work?
• How can I find meaning and serve customers in a cutthroat, bottom-line-oriented workplace?
• How can I use my skills in a vocation that has meaning and purpose?
• Can I stay true to my values and still advance in my field?
• How do I make the difficult choices that must be made in the course of a successful career?
With deep insight and often surprising advice, Keller shows readers that biblical wisdom is immensely relevant to our questions about our work. In fact, the Christian view of work—that we work to serve others, not ourselves—can provide the foundation of a thriving professional and balanced personal life. Keller shows how excellence, integrity, discipline, creativity, and passion in the workplace can help others and even be considered acts of worship—not just of self-interest.
