New York Times bestselling author of The Prodigal Prophet Timothy Keller explores how people are changed by meeting Jesus personally—and how we can be changed encountering him today. The people who met Jesus Christ in person faced the same big life questions we face today. Like most of us, the answers handed down to them didn’t seem to work in the real world. But when they met Jesus, things immediately started to change for them. It seems he not only had the answers—he was the answer. In Encounters with Jesus, Timothy Keller shows how the central events and meetings in Jesus’ life can change our own lives forever. "Keller's work belongs on the bookshelf of every serious Bible student." —Examiner "Keller has mined the gold from these texts of Scripture, and any Christian is bound to have their minds expanded and hearts stirred." —Grace for Sinners

What is my purpose in life? Who am I meant to be? How can I live a successful life? Why is there so much wrong with our world today? Am I part of the problem? What can I do to help change that? These are the big, seemingly unanswerable questions that everyone must ask and then answer in life. In Encounters With Jesus, New York Times-bestselling author and renowned pastor Timothy Keller explores Jesus' answers to life's biggest questions by showing what happened to those who met Jesus personally. Jesus changed the lives of nearly every person he met in the Gospels. These were powerful experiences that can have a profound effect on us today and help explain not only different aspects of Christianity, but the deep questions of life itself. Timothy Keller highlights ten of these encounters, including his meeting a sceptical student, a religious insider, an outcast, even Satan himself, and proves how invaluable the lessons from these encounters are for contemporary readers.

See Jesus through the eyes of two men and three women. Each character in the story—a tax collector, a Phoenician woman, a centurion, etc.—brings along elements from their own world now hidden from us because we do not share the culture of Jesus' world. Insights from the first century Middle East abound to unlock profound insights about Jesus and his audience.

The Gospels are full of encounters that made a profound impact on those who spoke with Jesus Christ. In 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. The baptism of Jesus and his temptation in the desert are two well-known experiences of Christ, yet it is often forgotten that they go together. In The Great Enemy, Keller explores the contrast between Jesus' encounters with God and Satan. He explains why evil is deeper, more nuanced, and more complex than we think, and how we can confront and weaken its destructive force in our lives. This and the other nine in the series make up the complete Encounters With Jesus: Unexpected Answers to Life's Biggest Questions.

By the Shores of Galilee is an intimate look at Jesus Christ by the men and women in His day who were touched by Him. Some of those in this book were fishermen, some were outcasts like an immoral woman who was weighed down by the guilt of her past, or a diseased leper estranged from society, others were even wealthy businessmen. Still, others were condemned men who were awaiting the judgement of their lawless deeds. Some were religious leaders with deep-seated opinions that overshadowed tangible proofs before their eyes. Yet there was something about Jesus that, for some, posed a riddle and a question they could not answer, and this mystery about Him they could not dismiss so easily. And still, others found in Jesus the answer to the culmination of all their deepest needs. Here, I invite you to take a journey back to that land and, as these pages unfold, feel the airy climate of Jerusalem and touch those dusty roads and, in the process, perhaps meet Jesus Christ yourself and feel your heart warmed by Him. It is my hope that for you the trip will be worth it.

The New Testament is filled with stories of people whose lives were radically changed after they had a personal encounter with Jesus, men and women from different situations and from different walks of life who went from darkness to light, from despair to hope, and from outcast to beloved. This book brings to life twenty-one of those transformative encounters through the use of story and a series of exciting new pictures created specifically for this project by artist Chris Koelle. This 3-week journey is designed to be used by individuals, small groups, Sunday school classes, and book clubs. It will speak to new Christians as well as to mature believers and to anyone who is earnestly seeking the truth. Our hope is these encounters will help you to better see the real Jesus, perhaps for the very first time, and so may lead you to have your own encounter with the Risen Lord.

Written by Joel Edwards, this 6-week Lent study goes to the very heart of our Christian faith and the meaning of Lent. We now have an urgent mission: to help people rediscover the awfulness of that condition which separates us from the love of God and which makes the life, death and resurrection of Jesus so central to our faith - sin. With Psalm 51 running sequentially as a common thread through each of the six studies, providing an Old Testament complement to the New Testament encounters this study puts Jesus where He belongs, at the very centre of our thoughts. Each study includes an opening icebreaker, suggested prayers and discussion starters as well as the main study, making it ideal for small groups. The material requires minimal preparation by the leader.

Ernie Hollands, a career criminal, said Christ appeared to him in his cell in Millhaven Penitentiary. Maria Martinez saw Jesus at a busy intersection in Miami, Florida. Rose Fairs was lying in bed one morning when the Venetian blinds opened and the head of Jesus materialized before her. Were these people only imagining a figure that seemed life-like, or is there a chance that what they saw was, in some way, real? This first critical study of contemporary visions of Jesus offers the intriguing accounts of thirty people, most of them ordinary men and women without prior or subsequent experiences of this kind, who remain mystified about their encounters. Wiebe recounts each vision in vivid detail, exploring why these individuals believe their visions were of Jesus, and why they typically believe them to be objective happenings, rather than hallucinations or dreams. He regards the occurrences from perspectives as diverse as biblical scholarship and parapsychology, concluding that they may well represent genuine religious experiences of a mystical character. The fascinating nature of these visions and Wiebe's thoughtful, evenhanded approach to each report add up to a book that will be provocative reading for skeptics and the faithful alike.
