Even geniuses need nurturing; people who say the right thing at the right time to a developing mind, that brings about their incredible awe-inspiring insight. So it is with the theological wisdom and intellect of Dr. Timothy Keller, one of the most well-known Christian pastors and authors in the country and some would say in the world. He’s the retired senior pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, a congregation he founded in the late 1980’s when the Big Apple was known as one of the most secular -even pagan- cities in America. Under his guidance the church grew to mega-church size with four locations in Manhattan. Keller’s specialty was and is tackling the hard questions and objections that atheists, agnostics, and even nominal Christians ask about Jesus Christ and Christianity. So it’s fitting that the first real biography of Keller would focus mainly on the people who created him: the theologians, Bible scholars, teachers, pastors and deep thinkers. On this episode of Lighthouse Faith podcast, author Collin Hansen talks about his book, “Timothy Keller: His Spiritual and Intellectual Formation.” Hansen had an all-access pass to Keller’s inner circle, and Keller himself, as he talks about his early upbringing and spiritual polemics that brought him to see, believe and preach to thousands that, “The resurrection of Jesus Christ is intellectually credible and existentially satisfying.”
