Timothy “Tim” Keller, pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church, NY, has a new book out on preaching.
Those who have read Keller’s works know that he is a very insightful author. His works are not rushed. They are very thoughtful and well-researched, in my opinion.
But as a preacher, a practitioner, I find Keller wanting. He has substance. But he lacks that fire.
At best he is monotone.
While I have no problem reading Keller, I can’t say the same for listening to Keller. Even D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones had that fire about him.
