New York Times bestselling author of The Prodigal Prophet Timothy Keller explores how people are changed by meeting Jesus personally—and how we can be changed encountering him today. The people who met Jesus Christ in person faced the same big life questions we face today. Like most of us, the answers handed down to them didn’t seem to work in the real world. But when they met Jesus, things immediately started to change for them. It seems he not only had the answers—he was the answer. In Encounters with Jesus, Timothy Keller shows how the central events and meetings in Jesus’ life can change our own lives forever. "Keller's work belongs on the bookshelf of every serious Bible student." —Examiner "Keller has mined the gold from these texts of Scripture, and any Christian is bound to have their minds expanded and hearts stirred." —Grace for Sinners
The best-selling author of The Prodigal God explores Jesus' perspectives on life's biggest questions as they might have been observed by those who met Him personally, arguing that people do not have to embrace blind faith or willful ignorance in order to explore the deep realities of God's purposes. 75,000 first printing.
What is my purpose in life? Who am I meant to be? How can I live a successful life? Why is there so much wrong with our world today? Am I part of the problem? What can I do to help change that? These are the big, seemingly unanswerable questions that everyone must ask and then answer in life. In Encounters With Jesus, New York Times-bestselling author and renowned pastor Timothy Keller explores Jesus' answers to life's biggest questions by showing what happened to those who met Jesus personally. Jesus changed the lives of nearly every person he met in the Gospels. These were powerful experiences that can have a profound effect on us today and help explain not only different aspects of Christianity, but the deep questions of life itself. Timothy Keller highlights ten of these encounters, including his meeting a sceptical student, a religious insider, an outcast, even Satan himself, and proves how invaluable the lessons from these encounters are for contemporary readers.

Encounters With Jesus by Gary M. Burge
Christian readers of the New Testament study the great stories about Jesus through the lens of western culture. In this series of books, Gary Burge uses his extensive knowledge of the first century world and the Middle East to offer insights not available to the average person. Each book will develop important cultural themes and wrap them around well-known New Testament passages. And the result will be insights rarely gained elsewhere. See Jesus through the eyes of two men and three women. Each character in the story—a tax collector, a Phoenician woman, a centurion, etc.—brings along elements from their own world now hidden from us because we do not share the culture of Jesus' world. Insights from the first century Middle East abound to unlock profound insights about Jesus and his audience.
Encounters With Jesus by Adriana Destro
A candid, compelling portrait of the man who has proved so significant—and so controversial—in Western culture, by two of Europe's best known pioneers of the anthropological study of early Christianity. Destro and Pesce bring the fruit of years of scholarship to bear on a radical figure in Roman Galilee, his encounters with others, and the movement those encounters inspired.
Encounters With Jesus by Anna Rapa
A dead man who rose again. A blind man who recovered his sight. A shady tax collector who gave back everything he ever stole. Each of these people met Jesus, and each has a story to tell. If you've ever wondered what it must have been like to meet Jesus, take a moment to read how Jesus's presence and his words deeply affected the woman at the well, the rich young ruler, Martha, Lazarus's sister, and others. They'll tell you their stories in their own words, and they just might challenge your idea of who Jesus is and what he's all about. A blend of biblical dialogue and imagination based on in-depth research, this book will invite you to walk with those who walked with Jesus, to see what they saw about him, and to respond to Jesus just as they did. Through their stories, you'll have the chance to encounter Jesus too.
