Most of the best Keller gems are here, so King's Cross makes a great intro to Tim's work for those who are unfamiliar. Don't go into this thinking this is a commentary on the book of Mark - not everything in Mark's gospel is covered here. Keller has a cohesive theme he's working with, so the book is more like 18 little Tim Keller sermons packaged together... easy to read and insightful. Keller always writes/speaks with unbelievers in mind, so it makes a great book for seekers/skeptics as well as new believers or people re-discovering the beauty of the gospel. In fact, for some, this would be a better book than Reason for God to start with in that he is not knocking defeater beliefs down straight-on, but gently leading the reader through their doubts to Jesus.
