We used this book as a teaching tool for our Apologetics class. It met the mark for discussion and logic in understanding how to minister to people in a time and season when so many are unsure if God even exists.
Thank you. This is our second order for a future class.
We had gone through this book in our Adult Sunday School class. It was a great book to help confirm why we believe what we believe and give us some talking points to help discuss with sceptics what the truth is. I wanted to have a copy to refer to in the future.
After reading this book, I now agree with a few other reviewers about the importance of Tim Keller's ministry in this Age of Skepticism to the many versions of non-believers. In this book, these ask questions and he both states, explains and identifies with clear logic and reasoning through literature, philosophy, anthropology (and other disciplines) the compelling case for God-His truth-our Creator-Sovereign, All Authority/sin-lostness, separation from God/Christ-the cross-death, resurrection-salvation-being declared justified, away from His eternal wrath (damnation, eternal hell).
One question he asks that almost no one wants to consider deeply in this ever increasing violent world: what is holding all out evil and destruction (by man and nature) back? And what determines which cells in man will bring about death, one person before or after the other? (For we know that death is no respecter of life).
This is an incredible present day generational apologetics, easily understood; a clear and defining defense for God's truth, sovereignity and total authority in lieu of His authority to eventually bring unbelievers and evil to their final conclusion-destined eternal suffering.
Tim Keller writes from personal experience in ministering to a present generation of seeking, questioning adults. Each topic is developed from conversations with individuals who were questioning the nature of God.
