February 2, 2011: Dr. Tim Keller, Founder and Pastor of New York’s Redeemer Presbyterian Church and New York Times Bestselling Author, is coming to Belhaven University on Thursday, February 24. He will be speaking on his new book King’s Cross, in the Center for the Arts Concert Hall at 7:00 pm. The doors to the event will open at 6:00 pm and is free and open to the public. Reformed University Fellowship, Lemuria Books, and Belhaven University sponsor this event jointly.

Keller’s new book is about the life of Christ as found in the Gospel of Mark. The publisher describes it as a, "revelatory look at the life of Christ as told in the Gospel of Mark. In it, 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. Like Keller’s other books, it speaks to skeptics and is ideal for the faithful, those who are looking for a closer connection to Jesus and a saving faith."

Born and raised in Pennsylvania, Keller graduated from Bucknell University, Gordon-Cornwell Theological Seminary, and Westminster Theological Seminary. He spent his first nine years as a pastor at Hopewell Presbyterian Church in Hopewell, Virginia. He left Hopewell and founded Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan in 1989 with his family. Christianity Today has called Redeemer, "one of Manhattan’s most vital congregations." It draws about 4500 attenders to its services on the Upper West Side and Upper East Side. Keller is an acclaimed speaker and evangelist as well as a very successful author. He has published many titles including Generous Justice, The Reason for God, and Counterfeit Gods.
