As a first-year student at Bucknell University in 1968, Rev. Timothy Keller began having doubts about his faith. Growing up Lutheran in Allentown, Pa., he gathered that being a Christian simply meant trying to be good and going to church on Sundays. When he was in high school, however, his parents switched to a conservative evangelical congregation, where he was taught that being a Christian meant “surrendering” his life to Christ. By the time Dr. Keller got to college, he didn’t know what to believe. “I was trying to figure out who I was,” he recalls.
