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.

I have been doing home studies for the last ten years and have yet to come across a study as good as this one. The material is deep, yet accessible and the questions help each person work through aspects of their heart and life. The videos are all about 11 minutes long which is just long enough to have solid content, but not so long that your community will lose interest. Also, the combination of home and group study helps people stay in the Spirit throughout the week. This is deepened because the study instructs you through diving into a passage of scripture as a group and then discussing Keller's preaching. But my favorite part is that the study pushes everyone to live out the gospel! Twice during this study Keller pushes your community to pursue the gospel in practical ways - once as a service project and once as an outreach opportunity. I would encourage community groups to take advantage of this wonderful resource!

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!

A thought-provoking study focusing on how we can live out Christ's priorities in daily life. Study guide has 2 parts, a HOME STUDY section, and a BIBLE STUDY section. Each video lesson is about 10 minutes long. The discussion questions are thought provoking and sparked some great discussions in our 50 minutes Sunday School class.

I would have preferred more scripture-based lesson in the Bible Study section as I prefer to glean my life-lessons from a passage rather than someone else's conclusions. However, his gleanings are well steeped in the Scriptures. The BIG question the author is encouraging us to ask is "What does it really mean to live our Christ in our daily life?"

When the study guide is used with the video, know that this is not one of those studies where the video simply mimics the written lesson but rather helps drive the point home and focus the discussion. However, the study is worthwhile without the video too. Half our class bought the kindle version and half bought the print version.
