Publisher's Summary

The Resurrection accounts of Jesus in the Gospels are the most dramatic and impactful stories ever told. One similarity unites each testimony - that none of his most loyal and steadfast followers could "see" it was him, back from the dead. The reason for this is at the very foundation of the Christian faith.

She turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realize that it was Jesus. (John 20:14) 

Hope in the Time of Fear is a book that unlocks the meaning of Jesus's resurrection for listeners. Easter is considered the most solemn and important holiday for Christians. It is a time of spiritual rebirth and a time of celebrating the physical rebirth of Jesus after three days in the tomb. For his devoted followers, nothing could prepare them for the moment they met the resurrected Jesus. Each failed to recognize him. All of them physically saw him and yet did not spiritually truly see him. It was only when Jesus reached out and invited them to see who he truly was that their eyes were open. Here the central message of the Christian faith is revealed in a way only Timothy Keller could do it - filled with unshakable belief, piercing insight, and a profound new way to look at a story you think you know. After listening to this audiobook, the true meaning of Easter will no longer be unseen.

Revealing the roots where true hope is found

I, like many others, have not been very good at unpacking the implications of the resurrection. In his inimitable way, Keller reveals how the gospel, in which the resurrection is inextricably entwined, is the ONLY true and lasting source of hope...totally independent of our circumstances. I cannot recommend this more highly. Enjoy!

The Audible book will drive you insane!

Tim Keller is great! The book is outstanding. But the CONSTANT narration of Bible References (chapters/verses) after every other sentence will drive you crazy! Yes, its great to have them but put them on a PDF like other audio books! It ruins and distracts from Kellers content. The narrator will sometimes read one sentence and then refer to five or.more places in the Bible you can look up the point just made. after 1/4 through the Audio book I had to shut it off and deleted it.
