My Rock, My Refuge by Timothy Keller
November 19th 2015 | Hodder & Stoughton | Hardbacks
New York pastor Timothy Keller is known for his ability to connect a deep understanding of the Bible with contemporary thought and the practical issues we all face in our lives. My Rock, My Refuge - his first devotional, consisting of all new material - offers inspiration for every day of the year, based on the book of Psalms.
Here Keller helps readers apply the principles he laid out in his book Prayer: Experiencing Awe and Intimacy with God. He walks them verse by verse through the entire Psalter, the one biblical book designed to teach us how to pray, how to spiritually handle every possible life situation, and how to actually know God.
Timothy Keller was born in Pennsylvania and educated at Bucknell University, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and Westminster Theological Seminary. He became a Christian at university, was ordained by the Presbyterian Church in America and worked as a pastor for nine years. The 'Influentials' Issue of New York Magazine featured Dr. Keller as "the most successful Christian evangelist in the city by recognizing that young professionals and artists are 'disproportionately influential' in creating the country's culture and that you have to meet this coveted demographic on its own terms."
Timothy Keller is renowned for his clear, reasoned approach to Christian apologetics and his book The Reason for God: Belief In An Age of Skepticism was named Book of the Year for 2008 by World Magazine. He lives in New York City with his wife Kathy and sons David, Michael and Jonathan.
