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.

Publisher's Description

A New York Times bestseller people can believe in—by "a pioneer of the new urban Christians" (Christianity Today) 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 even ardent believers, have about religion. Using literature, philosophy, real-life conversations, and potent 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 their ground against the backlash to religion created by the Age of Skepticism. And to skeptics, atheists, and agnostics, he provides a challenging argument for pursuing the reason for God.

In The Reason for God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism, Timothy Keller makes a compelling and thought provoking argument for believing in one God. Recently, there have been many critics and skeptics on the existence of a God and on religion, specifically Christianity. This book refutes the claims made by critics such as Dawkins and his colleagues. However, besides just refuting the claims, Keller examines, in turn, the biggest reasons for doubt people have, and the most compelling reasons to believe in God. Keller’s main purpose is to draw readers into rethinking what they have been told and to learn how to deal with doubt and disbelief.

The author of the book is the pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan. Knowing the mind of a skeptic, Keller clearly defines the six biggest doubts that people in our culture have toward Christian faith and the reasons behind them. He then makes an intriguing case against each reason. Later in the book, Keller draws upon the reasons why one should believe in Christianity and God. The book is solidly researched and well written and makes an intelligent argument without getting weighed down in religious terminology.

I found the book challenging because it made me consider the foundations upon which I hold my beliefs. Keller’s points also helped me see the underlining issues of the skeptic’s mindset. The reasons for believing helped to reaffirm my beliefs in Christianity. Overall, I think this book deserves to be read by any doubter, as well as every believer. -- Timothy Steece, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

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
