Introduction to The Keller Project

The Keller Project has a simple goal: publish my personal sermon notes for every message preached by Bible scholar Timothy Keller, the author of The Reason for God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism, since 1989 when his messages began to be recorded.


Timothy Keller's focus on the Gospel--particularly A) his presentation of the Gospel to skeptics of Christianity; and B) his detailed years-long exploration of how Christians must continue to apply the Gospel to their lives--would be a benefit to every denomination (and every skeptic who is wondering about Christianity).

It's not about promoting one man or one theological/denominational slant or focusing on any particular personality. It's about revealing the powerful nuances and rationality of the Gospel that many Christians of all denominations overlook. (I mention "rationality" because that's a fundamental premise here: faith in Christ is not blind irrationality. It is profoundly rational, something that Dr. Keller has explored in incredible detail between 1989 and 2017 before he retired from preaching.)

My sources for these sermon notes are the recordings found on the site Gospel in Life. Like any personal note taking, my sermon notes do not include every little detail of the sermon and can't compare to listening to the actual message in its full, original presentation. For that reason, I encourage any reader to explore the Gospel In Life site or listen to Dr. Keller's messages on his iTunes podcast.

To briefly introduce myself: I'm the author of the C. S. Lewis-themed book Shadowlands and Songs of Light. I'm also a huge "Lord of the Rings" fan like Timothy Keller, which is probably one of the reasons why I first became interested in Dr. Keller's work.
