[youtube link="" width="590" height="315"] Here's a great little Tim Keller video we made for the Evangelical Alliance Council meeting a while back. If you have not come across him before there's a great intro but if you are a long term fan there's some fresh insights into how we preach the gospel in our cities and towns. I am not sure I am comfortable with his view on contextualisation but you'll have to wait for another post on that. Hope you enjoy it.

Tim Keller, Women and Ignoring your own rules

Just in case it needs reiterating- the views represented on my blog and in this post are my own - I am not speaking on behalf of any organisation that I work for. Why Is TGC Complementarian? from The Gospel Coalition on Vimeo.   If you know me a little or if you have read this blog before you know I love Tim Keller. He is one of my favourite authors and preachers. His gracious tone makes him one of a very small number of people I know of who…

Tim Keller and Gospel Graciousness
Posted By : Date : Krish Kandiah | 12-31-2012
I have enjoyed reading Tim Keller's Center Church recently. I will publish a full review shortly. In the meantime I have always been struck by the gracious manner that Keller conducts himself. As a conservative evangelical he shares a lot of core beliefs with people like Mark Driscoll and John Piper, but the way he engages with those he disagrees with is often very different. Some of it will be due to temparement and personality i am sure, but towards the end of Center Church. Keller relates 4 guiding principles…

Keller on answering difficult questions
Posted By : Date : Krish Kandiah | 07-02-2012
I was privileged to spend some time talking with Tim Keller after his recent university mission at oxford university. One of the best parts of the mission for me was the structure of the evening event. 20 minute talk - Tim Keller 5 minute student testimony 15 minutes questions - answered by Tim 10 minute wrap up - Tim Keller This was for an evening evangelistic event and in some circles this would have been pretty radical / controversial as the only kind of talks that counts is 40 minute…

Keller reflects on Preaching to Brits
Posted By : Date : Krish Kandiah | 06-16-2012
Here's the second of two interview I did with Tim Keller at the OICCU mission this year. The first one on CS Lewis and Keller is here. Which Gospel? These interviews were conducted just after he had given a talk about the cross of Jesus and what it had accomplished. The text he chose to do this from was John 2 the wedding at Canaan. Which I thought was interesting choice of passage. I asked Tim about it and he explained that he had been given pretty strict instructions from…

CS Lewis and Tim Keller
Posted By : Date : Krish Kandiah | 05-31-2012
Many thanks to the students at Oxford University (OICCU) who agreed to us interviewing Tim Keller at the end of a long week of evangelistic outreach. Tim commented that this had been one of the most challenging mission weeks of his life. I will post the full evangelistic presentation that he did in an upcoming post. As part of the Evangelical Alliance's "Confidence in the Gospel" project that I am working on with my colleague Phil Green you will see more of these kind of resources popping up - so…

Tim Keller in Oxford
Posted By : Date : Krish Kandiah | 02-08-2012
Tim Keller is visiting the UK at the moment, leading a mission at Oxford University. Its an exciting time. One of the guys that I am mentoring sent me the following report: ‘The mission is fantastic thank you, 500 at Lunchtimes and 750 in the evenings – thinking it is going to get bigger as well.’ And also after I said we’d pray for him ‘Please do, the more prayer the better. We are starting to see some angry pushback from people who don’t like it, but that’s cool. The…
