Timothy Keller was born and raised in Pennsylvania and
educated at Bucknell University, Gordon-Conwell Theological
Seminary, and Westminster Theological Seminary. His first pastorate
was in Hopewell, Virginia. In 1989 he started Redeemer Presbyterian
Church in New York City with his wife, Kathy, and their three sons.
Today, Redeemer has nearly six thousand regular Sunday attendees
and has helped to start more than three hundred new churches around
the world. He is the author of Hidden Christmas, Making
Sense of God, and The Songs of Jesus, as well as The
Meaning of Marriage, The Prodigal God, and The Reason
for God, among others.
Kathy Keller received her MA in theological studies at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. Kathy cowrote The Meaning of Marriage and The Songs of Jesus with Tim. God's Wisdom for Navigating Life is their third collaboration.

"Through the Kellers' beautifully written devotionals, readers will be inspired and motivated to practice what they read 'in thought, word, attitude or deed.'"
"Superb . . . we should be grateful to Keller for his wisdom, scholarship, and humility."
-The Gospel Coalition
"Tim Keller's ministry in New York City is leading a generation of seekers and skeptics toward belief in God. I thank God for him."
"Unlike most suburban megachurches, much of Redeemer is remarkably traditional. What is not traditional is Dr. Keller's skill in speaking the language of his urbane audience. . . . Observing Dr. Keller's professorial pose on stage, it is easy to understand his appeal."
-The New York Times
"Fifty years from now, if evangelical Christians are widely known for their love of cities, their commitment to mercy and justice, and their love of their neighbors, Tim Keller will be remembered as a pioneer of the new urban Christians."
"At Redeemer Presbyterian and in several books, Keller shaped a vision of Evangelicalism that de-emphasizes politics and stresses care for the poor, personal sacrifice, and inclusiveness across ethnicity and class."
