Hope in Times of Fear: The Resurrection and the Meaning of Easter Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
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.

School class during which time my husband was dealing with stage 4 cancer.
Keller lays out the evidence for the cross, but in an end note Keller lays out his thesis, which is basically to explain how inaugurated eschatology (he doesn't use those words) is good news for us, and he at times specifically applies it to our modern world.
There's also a bit of biblical theology here, tracing, I would say various themes more than just one.
I would say this book seems aimed at new-ish believers, to some extent non-believers, and believers who might want to dip for the first time into biblical theology and inaugurated eschatology.
