This would make a great study for any sunday school or small group.
Jacob Sweeney
Tim Keller has a great way of making the gospel come to life, bringing word of truth to their practical application.
Holly Dahlman
Each session was a new way to look at ourselves, how we relate to others and how God calls us to be.

This is book/workbook summarizes many of the main themes that Keller teaches on (with the exception of apologetics, which is covered in "Reason for God.") This workbook pulls together what Keller believes are the primary themes of the Bible: gospel-centered living, dethroning idols as the key to real growth, love for the city, personal growth through community, generous giving, etc. It's sometimes difficult to mediate and chew on audio sermons, but this book provides a medium to work out these key biblical disciplines. Keller's work is classic Reformed theology, but this workbook is a fresh application of timeless ancient truths. In his signature style, Keller buils from Scripture, cites cultural references, and appeals to classic writers (C.S. Lewis, Jonathan Edwards).

Familiar themes: a defect in our sanctification is really a defect in our understanding of justification (Galatians, Colossians, Richard Lovelace); failure of any of the 10 commandments (or any commandment, really) is a failure of the 1st 2 commandments; Jeremiah 29 calls believers everywhere to seek to build the world/culture around them and love the world around them (in a sense), without assimilating to the world; you don't really understand the gospel till you practically live the gospel out in giving generously and practice social justice.

In my search for a good small group study comanion to a series on outreach I stumbled upon Tim Keller's 'gospel in life' dvd and study. It is comprehensive and both searching and practical and the dvd production quality is first-class.

The eight sessions are:
City - The World That Is
Heart - Three Ways to Live
Idolatry - The Sin Beneath The Sin
Community - The Context For Change
Witness - An Alternate City
Work - Cultivating The Garden
Justice - A People For Others
Eternity - The World That Is To Come

The series is rooted in a deeply biblical foundation of what it means to be a Christian/the Church in our world and begins by focusing on our relationship to God through Christ and why it matters to the world. Keller stresses a spiritual response to God, rather than just a religious one. So this is not a simple "Ten Ways to Do Outreach" series (although it does guide toward specific small group's response to addressing needs in our community). Keller frequently speaks of the 'city' referring not just to urban centers but wherever there is 'a place of density, diversity, and cultural energy' - something that is true of most of our neighborhoods and communities.

Some quotes:
Session 1 - The City
"In the city you are going to find people that appear spiritually hopeless. You're going to find people of no religion, people of other religions, and people with deeply non-Christian lifestyles, and you're going to discover that many of them are kinder, deeper, and wiser than you. You will also find that many of the poor and the broken are much more open to the gospel of grace and more dedicated to its practical out-working that you are." p.

This is a Workbook is an in depth course on the Biblical Gospel is to be lived out in all of your life--internally, and externally (in your community and in the world). It is specifically designed for use in a small group that is working through the companion DVD called "Gospel in Life." If you want to have a better understanding of how the gospel applies to your life not in the past, and not in the future, but NOW - then look no further than this book.

Anything Tim Keller writes is theologically deep, contains biblically sound teaching, and is penetratingly Christ-centered. This study guide is no exception - as a matter of fact, I almost wish it wasn't a study guide - so more people would read it, and work through it as a workbook. In my opinion he is the finest communicator of the gospel in America today.

There are 8 Studies in the Guide that are designed for use with the Gospel in Life DVD:

1) The City - The World That Is
2) The Heart - Three Ways To Live
3) Idolatry - The Sin Beneath The Sin
4) Community - The Context For Change
5) Witness - An Alternate City
6) Work - Cultivating The Garden
7) Justice - A People For Others
8) Eternity - The World That Is To Come

Each session contains an inductive Bible study on the theme, discussion questions based on the DVD, and home studies consisting of exercises, projects, readings, questions, and quotations to help you dig deeper into the topic at hand. A very helpful extensive section of notes is included for those who lead the small group through this study.

I can't recommend this DVD and Study Guide highly enough - I think it's a Top 5 (along with His study on "The Prodigal God" and "The Reason for God") resource to be used in any church that is serious about the Gospel, being missional, church planting, living in community, and fulfilling the great commission.

Our church body is going through this study together in small groups. It's been wonderful! We are only on Session 4 and the Lord has worked so much on my heart to transform it more to look like Him and to love Him more!
