Desiring God Interview with Tim Keller

While situated in a black leather chair in the comfort of his living room, Pastor Tim Keller answers a host of questions about his life and latest book.  It’s an interesting hour and a half.  Everything from his conversion to his early ministry to the beginnings of Redeemer is discussed.  His mild manner and approachability are certainly evident throughout, which makes for a good listen.

In the second segment, which is approximately 45 minutes long, his newest book, “Generous Justice,” is taken up.  Issues including the nature of justice, social justice, and mercy ministry are unpacked with pastoral insight.  As a deacon, I’m very much interested in getting my hands on a copy.  I suspect many of you would likewise enjoy it as well.

Difficulty: This is easy listening, my friends.

Must Listen Factor: Tim Keller’s an influential figure.  He’s interesting, thought-provoking, and winsome.  Audio scavengers shouldn’t hesitate to download this one.  As for the rest, unless you’re interested in learning more about the man, your time could be better spent elsewhere. 

Length: About an hour and a half.

    Austin, blogging together is getting scary because I think you are starting to look like me. Can nothing be done to save you before it’s too late?

      Worship=conforms us to Christ’s image
      Blogging=conforms us to Barry’s image. Is that where my hair is going?

    We have confirmed that Austin has caught through WordPress the Doppelganger virus and we have him quarantined.

    Does anyone know how to keep my Gravatar from popping up on his comments so we can cure him?

    As of February 2nd Austin’s been healed and the quarantine is lifted!
