It is easy to assume that if we understand the gospel and preach it faithfully, our ministry will necessarily be shaped by it—but this is not true.  Many churches claim to be gospel-centered but do not have a ministry that is shaped by, centered on, and empowered through the gospel.  The implications of the gospel have not yet worked their way into the fabric of how that church does ministry. 


Gospel-centered ministry is more theologically driven than program driven. To pursue it, we must spend time reflecting on the essence, the truths, and the very patterns of the gospel itself.  The gospel is neither religion nor irreligion, but something else entirely—a third way of relating to God through grace. In Shaped by the Gospel, bestselling author and pastor Timothy Keller addresses several current discussion and conflicts about the nature of the gospel and shows how faithful preaching of the gospel leads to individual and corporate renewal.

This new edition contains the first section of Center Church in an easy-to-read format with new reflections and additional essays from Timothy Keller and several other contributors.

"No one has listened more closely to the harmonies of city, culture, church, and Scripture than Tim Keller.  In Center Church, he not only describes the different strains of musi but also tells us how he has orchestrated the rsults for the sake of ministry outreach and renewal.  Now it's our turn to listen,as Tim practically yet powerfully prepares us to participate in this great symphony of the gospel."
---BRYAN CHAPELL, president, Covenant Theological Seminary

"Center Church is an immensely helpful resource for the next generation of church leaders.  It is theologically profound, thought provoking, and energizing, and it will make you uncomfortable in measure,  Once again, Tim Keller has hit the bull's-eye!
---ALISTAIR BEGG, senior pastor, Parkside Church, Cleveland, Ohio
