Publisher's Summary

In Encounters With Jesus, New York Times bestselling author and renowned pastor Timothy Keller shows how people were changed when they met Jesus personally - and how we can be changed today through our own encounter with him.
What is my purpose in life? What is a good life? Why is there so much wrong with our world? What can I do to help make it right?
These are some of the big questions that everyone must answer. And any lasting change in our lives will start with a change to one or more of our answers to these questions.
Jesus changed the life of every person he met in the Gospels, through powerful experiences and words that led them to unexpected and transforming answers to their big questions. These conversations can still address our questions and doubts today. Encounters with Jesus focuses on several of these meetings - including with a skeptical student, a religious insider, an outcast, even Jesus' mother - and tells how the central events in Jesus' life provide ways for us to encounter him again or for the first time.

Very deep

What made the experience of listening to Encounters with Jesus the most enjoyable?

Lloyd James was an excellent narrator, making the author's intent very clear. Keller's writing is crisp and gets to the points quickly with little fanfare, yet thoroughly lays out the foundation for his perspective. It's plain to me he's done his homework well.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Encounters with Jesus?

When Keller made clear the real role of the Holy Spirit as the "Second Advocate" and explaining clearly Jesus's role as the First Advocate and how the two Advocate roles are interconnected to make bring me to a spiritual bonding with God.

What does Lloyd James bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He is accurate and vocally clear, while bringing a sense of ownership and empathy to his role as narrator.
