Dr. Tim Keller leads the Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan, one of New York City’s largest congregations with more than 5,000 members.

A New York Times bestselling author, Keller has written numerous books, including “The Reason for God” and “The Prodigal God,” which sold more than 1 million copies. One of his books, “The Meaning of Marriage: Facing the Complexities of Commitment with the Wisdom of God,” focused on family and was written with his wife, Kathy.

Here are 10 positive messages and quotes from Keller about family and home life:

1. “Children are only brought to life and self-sufficiency if their parents sacrifice much of their independence and power. In light of the cross, it is the least we can do.” – From blog post “Three Ways with Families”

2. “We pray for whatever we are most worried about as a couple, anyone or anything on our hearts that day. And we pray through the needs of our family.” – From blog post “Scraps of Thoughts on Daily Prayer.”

3. “The power of their relationships lies not in the current emailing and the phone-calling, but from their many years of sharing the same home, beds, room, parents, schools, experiences—all fully present to each other.” – From a blog post talking about how his wife and her sisters share a close relationship

4. “One of the main purposes of marriage is to build kingdom-exhibiting community, to show the world how Christ transforms everything, including marriage.” – From an article “The Gospel and Sex”

5. “It’s turbo-charged friendship. It goes beyond sibling relationships, which can be very, very satisfying and wonderful. It’s different even than parent-child relationships, as warm as they can be. It’s greater than friendship. It’s just something else, and it’s not something you can get just from having sex.” – From Focus on the Family’s program, “The Boundless Show”

6. “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy.” – In a sermon, “Hope for the Family,” quoted on Crossmap
