Keith Green – There Is A Redeemer


Keith GreenHave you heard of Keith Green?  I was reminded of him yesterday morning, as we sang “There Is A Redeemer” in our church services.  I first heard him in 1978 or 1979, after I became a Christian.  He was interesting to me because his lyrics were radical and challenging to the norm.  He made you think and encouraged you to be committed to Jesus Christ.  I liked his music.

He was from Brooklyn, New York.  He began singing very early and by the age of 15 had a record deal with Decca Records.  They had problems in promoting a 15 year old singer.  He was raised Jewish, but he read the New Testament.  When he was 21, he became a Christian and his life changed radically.

He died in a plane crash when he was 28 years old.  He had seven years of ministry that is still being remembered thirty years later.  It’s amazing the impact he had.  His desire was to tell people about Jesus.  I would encourage you to read his entire biography.
