What is a gospel-centered ministry?

Today, many Christian leaders strive to achieve a growing post-Christian culture, without negotiating an orthodox theology. How do we communicate the concepts of sin, grace and atonement in our culture and in our contexts?

In his award-winning book Centered Church , bestselling author and pastor Timothy Keller traces a theological vision organized around three commitments: gospel, city, and movement. In Shaped by the Gospel , Keller distills both the fundamental truths and patterns of the gospel. What emerges from this is a gospel-centered ministerial vision that is defined neither by religion nor by irreligion, but by something entirely different: a path of relationship with God through grace. Keller exposes the nature of the gospel and reveals how faithful preaching and gospel-based ministry guide both individual and communal renewal. This exposition should be insightful for pastors, deacons, and lay leaders as they consider new and revitalized paths to communicate the historic gospel in our time.

This edition develops the content of the first part of Church Centered in an easy-to-read format, and also includes the reflections of two collaborators—Michael Horton and Dane Ortlund—who will delve into the relationship between the law and the gospel and the need to reclaim the doctrine of union with Christ, as well as includes Timothy Keller's insightful answers on these topics.



Timothy Keller is the founder and senior pastor of Redeemer Church in New York City. A New York Times bestselling author, he has written more than twenty books, including The Prodigal God and Encounters with Jesus. He has mentored young urban church planters in New York and other cities through Redeemer City to City, an organization that has helped plant more than 350 churches in 50 cities around the world to date.


“In a rapidly changing culture that seems strange to many Christians (just as Christians seem strange to many in the culture!), it is easy for believers to give up and adopt a totally defensive posture. In this important book, Tim Keller explains the gospel and carefully but firmly reminds us that it is non-negotiable. At the same time it allows us to reflect on how we can responsibly interact with culture, how we can—indeed, should—appreciate the good things in it, and how we can firmly and faithfully apply the gospel. However, it is not a practical and mechanical book; rather, it is a reflective meditation on very important themes of Scripture, written by someone who has faithfully exercised a pastoral ministry in a large city for two decades.”
- DA Carson, author of The God Who Is Present

“No one has heard more intimately the harmonies of city, culture, church and Scripture than Tim Keller. In Centered Church, he not only describes the different chords of the music, but tells us how he has orchestrated the results to benefit the ministry of evangelistic outreach and renewal. It is now our turn to listen, as Tim practically but powerfully prepares us to participate in this great symphony of the gospel.”
- Bryan Chapell, author of Christ-Centered Preaching and Grace Without Limits

“This extraordinary book, like the Manhattan ministry from which it emanates, demonstrates how Reformed theological discernment and wise pastoral intelligence can combine to achieve spiritual results in urban contexts everywhere. Each page illustrates. Keller is a tremendous gift to the church today.”
- JI Packer, author of Knowing God
