The First Christian

The Gospels are full of encounters that made a profound impact on those who spoke with Jesus Christ. In the fifth part of his Encounters with Jesusseries, Timothy Keller, pastor of New York's Redeemer Presbyterian Church and New York Times-bestselling author of The Reason for God, shows how those encounters can still have a deep effect on us today. By examining an encounter between Jesus and Mary Magdalene, one of his most beloved disciples, Keller clarifies the Christian understanding of faith, and explains its role in answering the big questions of life.

This and the other nine in the series make up the complete Encounters With Jesus: Unexpected Answers to Life's Biggest Questions.

Insightful and Gospel-centered
5 stars By Julz, Dec 02 2017
Tim Keller is known for his deep understanding of the bible and its application to today's world, and this is reflected in this book. In this book, he argues that reasoning is involved in faith in Christ, but without supernatural intervention is of no use. This book is good for those who are struggling to believe in Christ, but also for Christians to open our eyes that if we can have faith in Christ, it is all by His grace.
