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" (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.

Timothy Keller's latest book, God's Wisdom for Navigating Life, will be available from Viking in Fall 2017.

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 review was written for Reason for God, Large Print.
    This is the finest apologetic I have ever seen. Tim's theology is sound, his responses are well thought out and articulated, and he speaks with gentle loving compassion toward unbelievers, without compromising his Christian principles. The large-print edition is high quality printing and easy for sight-challenged folks to read. All my Bibles are large-type. I retain the information better, when I read large-type books.

    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.

    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.
