The Wedding Party by Timothy Keller

Volume four of Keller's e-book series was such a breath of fresh air!

Keller provides some wonderful insights to the first miracle performed by Jesus in the Gospel of John. I've heard so many stories and sermons on this story; Jesus turns water to wine after the alcohol runs out. I've heard the focus on the cleansing rituals and how Jesus foreshadows the great banquet but Keller provides a little extra here.

One of the major points in this essay was, while everyone else was celebrating the wonderful wedding party, Jesus was thinking about his death. (Woman ... my time has not yet come)

There is so much more to this book. Keller has a way of providing some good meaty study while whetting the appetite for more. If only we could attend his church!

It is an uplifting read. Whether you're married or single, this book (especially the end!) will encourage you to pursue the God who pursues you!

This is another winner of a short e-book from Keller. They provide some great teaching for a mid-week study or a morning jolt of godly praise.

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