Preaching to the Heart by Tim Keller

I first heard of Tim Keller through D.A. Carson's book Becoming Conversant with the Emerging Church. Carson offered Keller as an example of someone who is reaching the emerging generation without being part of the emerging movement.

I don't know when exactly I began to listen to Keller, but I'm certainly in a phase of learning from him. He has a grasp of theology, gospel, and culture that's rare, and is a good example of an effective scholarly practitioner.

Keller gave a series of lectures on preaching at Gordon-Conwell last year called Preaching to the Heart, and I've been listening to the CDs this week. Here are the names of the sessions:

(1) Preaching to the Heart without being Legalistic
(2) Preaching to the Heart without being Piestic
(3) Unintentional Preaching Models
(4) Reading, Preparation, Conversation, and Preaching
(5) Preaching to "Emerging" Culture
(6) Preaching to the Heart without being Individualistic

The PDf files for these talks are also included on a separate CD.

Any pastor who takes the time to chew on these lectures can't help but be changed. These are well worth ordering from the Ockenga Institute.
