Timothy Keller, who recently passed away on May 19, 2023, is generally considered to be one of the preeminent evangelical leaders of the first two decades of the 21st century. Millions have read his books and listened to his sermons. This book takes readers behind the scenes to explore the people and events that shaped Keller’s spiritual and intellectual life – from the woman who taught him how to study the Bible, to the professor who taught him to preach Jesus from every text, to the theologians and philosophers who taught him to see beneath society’s surface. 

The author, Collin Hansen, introduces the reader to Keller’s early years, from the home where he learned to tell stories, to the small Virginia church where he learned to care for souls, to New York City and Redeemer Presbyterian Church that elevated Keller to an international figure and a fame he didn’t desire.
