Rev. Gordon Harper5 Stars Out Of 5October 17, 2008Rev. Gordon HarperAs one who has always struggled to balance my genuine faith against my pragmatism, "The Reason for God" by Timothy Keller is a great read. Keller's Biblical and practical answers to logical questions regarding Christianity are concise, clear and ultimately quite satisfying. A must read for any sincere but searching skeptic.
Patricia Chadwick5 Stars Out Of 5May 11, 2008Patricia ChadwickThis is a wonderful work of Christian apologetics. It examines the tough questions that are asked, not just by unbelievers, but by believers also. It also takes a look at the arguments used to attack the Christian Faith and gives the reader the tools to stand up for their beliefs. The Reason for God is written in an easy to read, understandable fashion, not just for the scholar. It is a book that everyone should have on hand to sharpen our skills in debating the existence of God with an unbeliever.
Dave5 Stars Out Of 5May 10, 2008DaveA very well written book, this is an excellent resource for anyone who is seeking, has seeking friends or family, or anyone (like myself) who is into Apologetics. The book is broken into two main sections, the first examines the main secular arguments AGAINST God and Christianity, exposing the logical fallacies and misconceptions of the vast majority of atheist arguments. The second section is a general overview of a lot of affirmative evidence FOR creationism and Theism in general, and for God and Christianity in particular. The author, while clearly speaking from a Reformed perspective, does an excellent job addressing the issues, while leaving the theological implications to the reader. My only complaint is that this book does seem to mostly stick to hitting the high points of an argument, and is not heavy on the details. This is a minor complaint, however, as there is a LOT of content, and if each subject were given an in-depth treatment, the book would need instead to be several volumes.I highly recommend this book to anyone who is curious about faith, wants to deepen their faith, or wants help sharing it.
Karl Schaffenburg5 Stars Out Of 5May 1, 2008Karl SchaffenburgOutstanding. The best piece of Christian apology I have seen since Lewis (with apologies to N.T. Wright). Not only is the work accessible, it examines in detail the argumnets which underly secular attacks on the faith, allowing an apologist to engage a doubter on their own field. I am using this now as the foundation for an enquirers' class of the college-aged.
Rev. Doyle Peyton5 Stars Out Of 5April 18, 2008Rev. Doyle PeytonA good apologetic work written to answer common objections to the faith. It is written in a fashion more understandable for the modern mindset than some of the older classic works. His chapter on the centrality of the cross, though helpful,I believe clouds the full understanding of Christ's death as propitiation.
