Now Timothy Keller unlocks new insights into the life of Jesus Christ as he explores how Jesus came as a king, but a king who had to bear the greatest burden anyone ever has. Jesus the King is Keller’s revelatory look at the life of Christ as told in the Gospel of Mark. In it, Keller shows how the story of Jesus is at once cosmic, historical, and personal, calling each of us to look anew at our relationship with God.

In discussing the identity of Jesus, the author describes him as a man both deeply embedded within his culture and times while also living counter to them in many ways... The author describes a man aware of his upcoming sacrifice, and indeed, a man in continual sacrifice, as he had descended from heaven to live on earth. Captivating reading from a Christian perspective.
— Kirkus Reviews
Keller engages the reader with astute pastoral application, littered with excellent sermon illustrations... King’s Cross finds Keller in familiar territory: producing another great book, leaving readers from atheist to Christian grappling with the nature and implications of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
— Michael Johnson,
This is the book where Tim Keller hits his stride as an author... Keller directs readers’ gaze toward the cross and will not allow them to look away.
— Collin Hansen, The Gospel Coalition
