    Description

    Many pastors struggle to translate their theological beliefs into fruitful ministry in the places they are called to reach. It’s not enough to simply know what to believe (theology), or on the other hand, how to do ministry (methodology) - they need something in between. They need help thinking about ministry in a culture that no longer believes Christianity is a force for good, let alone the source of ultimate revealed truth in the person of Christ.

    This unabridged audiobook, a collection of 12 essays by Timothy Keller, outlines a theological vision for ministry that is organized around three core commitments:

    • Gospel-centered: The gospel of grace in Jesus Christ changes everything, from our hearts to our community to the world. It completely reshapes the content, tone, and strategy of all that we do;
    • City-centered: With a positive approach toward our culture, we learn to affirm that cities are wonderful, strategic, and underserved places for gospel ministry; and
    • Movement-centered: Instead of building our own tribe, we seek the prosperity and peace of our community, as we are led by the Holy Spirit. A theological vision creates a bridge between doctrine and expression, a balance between cultural engagement and countercultural distinctiveness.

    Written by a practitioner for practitioners, Center Church will provoke serious reflection, creative adaptation, and decisive action. It can be used by groups or individually and includes questions for discussion and reflection.

    PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    Wisdom for Urban Churches - Deep, Wide & Practical

    Any additional comments?

    I am a pastor in New York City and an admirer of Tim Keller's preaching and writing, though I've only attended Redeemer Presbyterian Church a couple of times. This lengthy book reads as a carefully assembled notebook of the accumulated wisdom of Keller (and his team) in building one of the most thriving and paradigmatic churches in New York City today. It shows clearly the depth and clarity of thought and the faith put into practice that is embodied in Keller's work. It rightly rejects the idea that others can simply take over the Redeemer model and replicate it. Rather, Keller leads the reader to think substantively about the many elements that are part of the life of an urban church with a strong center in the Gospel. It ranges widely from the content of preaching and theology, to issues of interaction with secular culture, to diversity in worship styles, and many other topics.
    While I think that the book will be most relevant to those who are directly involved in ministry, it will also provide a thoughtful journey through urban church life to anyone who reads it.
    Tom Parks does an excellent job reading the book. I highly recommend it.

    The textbook

    This is the Epic textbook on gospel-centered Ministry. I recommend it as a foundational and reference read.

    Very useful book

    Everything I've read and listened to by Timothy Keller has been well spoken and useful in practical ways as he gives real life examples of all he teaches. This book is no different.

    This is my first listen. I'll be listening with an ear for taking notes this time around.

    Excellent.

    This book addressed every element of basic church life. I highly enjoyed the section on the contextualization of the Gospel. I also very much enjoyed his perspectives on how many churches should be planted in our cities.

    Doctrinally sound and practically insightful

    This book has the ability to help the person who is doctrinally sound but unable to develop a practically helpful ministry, while at the same time help the person who is a practical genius but lacking in sound doctrinal roots in ministry.

    If you are looking to develop your mission, vision, and strategy for church ministry, then look no further, this is the book you need to read. If you are looking to better apply your vision in practical on the ground ways in discipleship curriculums, community groups, etc. then look no further, this is the book for you.

    MUST-READ FOR EVERY PASTOR AND PASTOR-TO-BE

    What did you love best about Center Church?

    1. Center Church draws us back to what is essential - the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
    2. Center Church is practical yet far from giving us a specific method.
    3. Center Church speaks to all the different expressions of Evangelicalism and calls for important corrections in all camps.

    His view on the city is insulting

    I was enjoying this book until the discussion about the city and God’s preferred view of the city I’ve rural. Down right insulting. Arrogant bull shit.

    Helpful Overview, But Too Many Abstract Claims

    Positives: Tim Keller's, book Center Church, as the title alludes seeks to provide a centered/balanced approach to Gospel ministry. He talks about the extremes on a number of different sub-categories of ministry; such as: friendship vs. spontaneous evangelism, contemporary vs. modern worship services, culturally adapted vs. culturally challenging messages, etc. Overall he provides a helpful, critically thought out large scale overview of ministry. He is charitable to many views and perspectives, and seeks to accurately show how they relate to one another. Negatives: Keller's attempt to find the pros and cons of every perspective on every issue at some points in the book makes things feel less nuanced (what he is going for) and more muddled and perhaps over simplistic. Every perspective seems to be both right and wrong almost in equal proportions on every issue. It at times feels like something is true simply because it is between these two perspectives (see middle ground fallacy). In finding pros and cons with every ideology he sometimes ends up characterizing certain groups (while he usually doesn't). For example, he more or less states that conservatives/republicans do not care about the poor as much as they should and they often put too much blame on them for their circumstances. This however is a democratic trope of conservatives. On average conservatives give more than liberals to charitable organizations. Additionally people like Thomas Sowell, have shown how large scale intervention is not the best way to help poor people in the long term. Keller also draws narratives of how things are with little appeal to any empirical evidence of what he is saying. He talks about attitudes of "the white church," with little evidence that race is a unifying factor between churches that happen to be predominantly white. Because little support is given for some of the large scale narratives he discusses it is hard to know what is objective and accurate, and what is merely his own perspective.

    so helpful!

    clear, concise and yet in-depth engagement with the hard task of giving a comprehensive vision for urban church ministry. very insightful, very knowledgeable... probably the greatest gift Keller gave us through his writing and ministry.
