Keller makes many sound arguments, but one particularly stood out to me. He makes an argument for God loving from all eternity past because he has always existed as three persons and how it could not really be said that he "is love", otherwise. This is a new thought for me, but I must admit a powerful one for the truth of the trinity in addition to irrefutable passages as such as John 1:3 and Colossians 1:15-16.
Dr. Keller delivers the faith with charity & logic
November 17, 2011
This book has, so far, been the most accessible book in giving sound and sensitive reason for believing in Jesus Christ and accepting the gospel. I'm a big fan of apologetics and I listen weekly to a selection of podcasts that give reasons for why it's logical and of eternal significance to believe. This book would be the first thing I'd give to anyone who's interested in hearing the gospel from an intellectual and heartfelt perspective. Dr. Timothy has done an excellent job in presenting the truth in an age of religious plurality and relativity.
For either the seasoned Christian, someone new to the faith, or someone seeking to understand what being a Christian means, this is a terrific explanation and well-written book about what Christianity is all about. It's easy to read. The quotes and examples that help illustrate the reasons for the Christian faith draw upon sound biblical information and a well-chosen variety of quotes from scholars, philosophers, theologians, and others. Well done! A valuable resource for anyone!
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.
