Tim Keller will be speaking in the UK twice in the next few months. I received the following information from Oak Hill College which will be hosting him. I understand that he will also speak for Newfrontiers on the second trip.

Two conferences with Tim Keller, pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City, will take place at Oak Hill in November 2008 and May 2009.
The first, Preaching to the Heart, is on 19 Nov 2008. Jonathan Edwards believed that the ultimate purpose of preaching is not only to make the truth clear, but also to make it real — affecting and life-changing. This is usually covered under the topic of “application,” although framing the subject in that way often results in a “tack-on” of practical advice after a dry, academic exposition.
How can we preach the text from first to last in a way that exalts Christ, changes heart motivations, produces wisdom and wonder, and persuades the sceptical and results in real life change?
In two lectures, Tim Keller explores these challenges to the preacher. The conference will run between 10.00 a.m. and 12.30 p.m. in Lecture Room 1 of the Academic Centre at Oak Hill (cost: £5).
The second conference, on Urban Church Planting, takes place on 13 May 2009.
Tim Keller is the author of the recently published book, The Reason for God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism.
