The First Christian by Timothy Keller

This e-book is the fifth entry for Timothy Keller. It is short but packed full of insightful information.

Keller touches on the interaction between Mary and Jesus upon his resurrection. Keller's point is that Mary was the first Christian and he extracts aspects of her encounter for us.

Keller explores what faith is in light of a relationship with Jesus. Is it reasonable? Is it complete all at once? Is faith in Jesus something we can build upon on our own or, like Mary, do we need Jesus to speak our name and open our eyes?

These questions, plus a few more, are discussed with such clarity.

It's difficult to say much more without giving the entire book away. There is a point where someone should purchase the book and read it themselves.

You will not be disappointed with this book or any of the others in this series by Timothy Keller.

This book was provided for review, at no cost, by Dutton Publishing.
