Synopsis: Timothy Keller, renowned pastor and New York Times bestselling author, continues his Encounters with Jesus eBook series with The First Christian, a biblical exploration of the meaning of faith.

Jesus’ conversations in the Gospel of John can teach us a great deal about our lives today. In his Encounters with Jesus series, Timothy Keller, pastor of New York’s Redeemer Presbyterian Church and New York Times bestselling author of The Reason for God, explores biblical passages of conversations with Christ to answer life’s big questions. By examining an encounter between Jesus and Mary Magdalene, one of his most beloved disciples, Keller clarifies the Christian understanding of faith, and explains its role in answering the big questions of life.
