Description

The New York Times bestselling author and renowned pastor explores the power of prayer. 
Christians are taught in their churches and schools that prayer is the most powerful way to experience God. But aside from learning prayers by rote, few receive instruction or guidance in how to make the most of this essential Christian act—how to make prayer genuinely meaningful. In Prayer, renowned pastor Timothy Keller delves into the many facets of this everyday act.
With his trademark insights and energy, Keller offers brilliant and inspirational biblical guidance, as well as specific prayers for certain situations, such as dealing with grief, loss, love, and forgiveness. He discusses ways to make prayers more personal and powerful, and how to establish a practice of prayer that works for each listener.
Dr. Keller’s previous books have sold more than one million copies. His Redeemer Presbyterian Church is not only a major presence in his home base of New York, it has also helped to launch more than two hundred fifty other churches in forty-eight cities around the world. His teachings have already helped millions, the majority of whom pray regularly. And with Prayer, he’ll show them how to find a deeper connection with God.

        "Keller's work belongs on the bookshelf of every serious Bible student. It is not a quick read, but, instead should be savored like fine wine, one sip at a time to glean the full impact of his life-changing message."
        -Examiner.com


        Praise for Timothy Keller and his books:

        "Tim Keller's ministry in New York City is leading a generation of seekers and skeptics toward belief in God. I thank God for him."
        – Billy Graham

        "Unlike most suburban megachurches, much of Redeemer is remarkably traditional. What is not traditional is Dr. Keller's skill in speaking the language of his urbane audience...Observing Dr. Keller's professorial pose on stage, it is easy to understand his appeal."
        The New York Times

        "Fifty years from now, if evangelical Christians are widely known for their love of cities, their commitment to mercy and justice, and their love of their neighbors, Tim Keller will be remembered as a pioneer of the new urban Christians."
        Christianity Today Magazine

        "With intellectual, brimstone-free sermons that manage to cite Woody Allen alongside Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, Keller draws some 5,000 young followers every Sunday. Church leaders see him as a model of how to evangelize urban centers across the country, and Keller has helped 'plant' 50 gospel-based Christian churches around New York plus another 50 from San Francisco to London."
        New York Magazine

        "Theologically rich and philosophically informed, yet accessible and filled with practical wisdom."
        Cardus on Every Good Endeavor

        "This book is for us all and through its reading it can change and reshape your entire outlook on your life."
        – SarahMac on Every Good Endeavor

        "It's a great resource to equip you to speak with your secular friends; to show them why the Christian understanding of marriage is not only a tremendous blessing, it's the only one that works."
        ChristianPost.com on The Meaning of Marriage

        "The Meaning of Marriage is incredibly rich with wisdom and insight that will leave the reader, whether single or married, feeling uplifted. While the book is filled with expertly selected biblical verses, nonreligious readers willing to 'try on' these observations may find answers not only to the meaning of marriage but to that even bigger question—the meaning of life itself."
        The Washington Times on The Meaning of Marriage

        "This is the book I give to all my friends who are serious spiritual seekers or skeptics."
        – Rick Warren, author of The Purpose Driven Life, on The Reason for God

        "Keller mines material from literary classics, philosophy, anthropology and a multitude of other disciplines to make an intellectually compelling case for God. Written for skeptics and the believers who love them, the book draws on the author's encounters as founding pastor of New York's booming Redeemer Presbyterian Church...[The Reason for God] should serve both as testimony to the author's encyclopedic learning and as a compelling overview of the current debate on faith for those who doubt and for those who want to reevaluate what they believe, and why."
        Publishers Weekly on The Reason for God

        "World has briefly reviewed about 200 books over the past year. Many stand out, but one in particular is likely to change many lives and ways of thinking. World's Book of the Year is Tim Keller's The Reason for God. "

        October 20, 2014
        The founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan has created a definitive book on Christian prayer, in the tradition of his previous bestsellers (The Reason for God; The Meaning of Marriage). This study will be equally beneficial to seasoned followers of God and those simply seeking information on the topic. Keller’s own desire for a deeper prayer life prompted him to study what prayer is and how to pray. As he finds inspiration in current thought, the Psalms, and Reformation theology from Augustine, Luther, and Calvin, Keller balances erudite concepts with easy-to-understand information and practical application, showing that prayer is not only a conversation but also an encounter with God that seeks intimate knowing. Citing the Lord’s Prayer as a model for coming face to face with God, he contemplates prayers of meditation, praise, and forgiveness while addressing confusing subjects like the Trinity, praying in Jesus’ name, and why people need to pray at all. He distills his findings into 12 “touchstones” by which the effectiveness of prayer life can be measured, and includes outlines for how to get in the habit of daily prayer.
