Product Description

How could a loving God send people to hell? Why does he allow suffering? Can one religion be "right" and the others "wrong"? Responding to the questions of open skeptics and ardent believers, Keller draws from literature, philosophy, reason, and real-life conversations to explain how faith in a Christian God is a soundly rational belief. 336 pages, softcover from Dutton.

Publisher's Description

A New York Times bestseller people can believe in—by "a pioneer of the new urban Christians" (Christian Today magazine) and the "C.S. Lewis for the 21st century" (Newsweek).

Timothy Keller, the founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, addresses the frequent doubts that skeptics and non-believers bring to religion. Using literature, philosophy, anthropology, pop culture, and intellectual reasoning, Keller explains how the belief in a Christian God is, in fact, a sound and rational one. To true believers he offers a solid platform on which to stand against the backlash toward religion spawned by the Age of Skepticism. And to skeptics, atheists, and agnostics he provides a challenging argument for pursuing the reason for God.

Look out for Timothy Keller's latest book, The Songs of Jesus.



 

 

 

Author Bio

As the founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, Tim Keller started his congregation with a few dozen people. It now draws over five thousand weekly attendees who meet in three Manhattan locations. Redeemer has since spawned a movement of churches across America and throughout major world cities. Many pastors model their churches on Redeemer and Tim's thoughtful style of preaching. Dr. Keller lives in New York City with his wife and sons.

Editorial Reviews

"It is easy to understand [Timothy Keller's] appeal."
-The New York Times

"In a flood of bestsellers by skeptics and atheists...Keller stands out as an effective counterpoint and defender of the faith. The Reason for God makes a tight, accessible case for reasoned religious belief."
-The Washington Post

"It's a provocative premise, in pursuit of which Keller...takes on nonbelievers from evolutionary biologists to the recent rash of atheist authors."
-The Boston Globe

"Reverend Tim Keller [is] a Manhattan institution, one of those open urban secrets, like your favorite dim sum place, with a following so ardent and so fast-growing that he has never thought to advertise."
-New York Magazine

"An intellectually compelling case for God."
-Publishers Weekly

"I thank God for him."
-Billy Graham

    This is an excellent resource for those with intellectual doubts about God. I purchased and read the book when a loved one highly recommended it. She had grown up in the church but has been away from God for years. This book may be a tool that God eventually uses to bring her back. I pray so!

    This book is a wonderful resource for those interested in pursuing apologetics as well as those who are questioning the very existence of God. Timothy Keller puts forward ideas that make a person think for themselves rather than simply trying to ram the idea of an obvious God down the throat of the reader. Definitely recommend this book.

    My current favorite apologetics book

    The Reason for God is a great book for anyone curious about Christianity and finding out the truths of reality. The apologetics (defense of the Christian faith) presented by the author is fresh and fair. The book has a neutral feel to it rather than coercive. Timothy Keller presents the facts, logic, and arguments and lets the reader decide. His approach should be appealing to his entire audience -- not just Christians. This approach both contrasts and overlaps with authors like Ken Ham, Norman Geisler, Ray Comfort, Henry Morris, and John MacArthur. While I appreciate the writings of all those men, my overall favorite apologetics book so far is this one by Timothy Keller because it is to the point and truly thought provoking.

    Great Intro to Apologetics

    This was one of the books that helped me establish a foundation in Christian apologetics years ago. As one of the pioneers of modern urban ministry, Timothy Keller is very good at communicating Christian truth to an audience that is strongly influenced by the pervading post-modern, cultural relativist and skeptical milieu. He writes in a way that is very friendly, engaging and easy to follow, even among those who have never been churched and have little to no prior background knowledge of Christianity. At the same time, he communicates the truths of the Gospel with clarity and persuasiveness. He provides a solid case for why we as Christians are right to believe why we believe, and why non-Christians need to take the Christian message seriously.

    Kellers approach to apologetics is multi-disciplinary. He makes good use of arguments and anecdotes from history, science, classical writings and good old fashioned logical reasoning. He does this in a way that disarms many of the difficult questions that too often stump Christians who are queried by their non-Christian friends. Although he comes from a Conservative Reformed standpoint, not everything that he states may be acceptable for Conservative Reformed Evangelicals (eg. his tendency towards theistic evolution). On the whole, however, this does not majorly impact the main thrust of his work, and positive far outweighs the negative in this case.

    For these reasons, The Reason for God an ideal book for people of almost any religious background, whether they are Christians, Atheists or adherents of other world religions. It is also ideal reading for any age group, although I would especially recommend this book to those youths who are in college/university or in their final years of high school.
