Book of the Week

Jesus the King by Tim Keller

A startlingly fresh perspective on the life of Christ from The New York Times bestselling author and nationally renowned minister. The most influential man ever to walk the earth has had his story told in hundreds of different ways for thousands of years. Can any more be said? Timothy Keller, New York Times bestselling author of The Reason for God and the man Newsweek called a C.S. Lewis for the twenty-first century, explains how Jesus came as a king, but a king who had to bear the greatest burden. King’s Cross is Keller’s revelatory look at the life of Christ as told through the Gospel of Mark. Keller shows how the story of Jesus is at once cosmic, historical, and personal, calling each of us to look anew at our relationship with God.

  1. But in true love, your aim is to spend yourself and use yourself for the happiness of the other, because your greatest joy is that person’s joy. Therefore your affection is unconditional: You give it regardless of whether your loved one is meeting your needs. And it’s radically vulnerable: You spend everything, hold nothing back, give it all away.
  2. All love, all real, life-changing love, is substitutionary sacrifice. You have never loved a broken person, you have never loved a guilty person, you have never loved a hurting person except through substitutionary sacrifice.
  3. True love is generative. It is the only kind that makes more of itself as it goes along.
