Publisher's Description

This six-session small group Bible study captures live and unscripted conversations between Tim Keller and a group of people to address their doubts and objections to Christianity. Using literature, philosophy, and Scripture, Keller and the group explore the truth of Christianity.

In his New York Times bestselling book The Reason for God, Timothy Keller established himself as a modern-day C. S. Lewis who brings together faith and intellect, theology and popular culture, modern-day objections and historic Christian beliefs.

Now fans of the New York Times bestseller can find resources to help them engage with those same objections, drawing on recent scholarship and debates. The Reason for God small group Bible study can be used individually, with groups, or by any believer who is engaging with friends who don’t share his or her beliefs.

Christians will be challenged to wrestle with their friends and neighbors’ hardest questions, and to engage those questions in ways that will spark an honest, enriching, and humbling dialogue. Capture a live and unscripted conversation between Timothy Keller and the six panelists discussing their objections to Christianity. This study will help small groups and individuals dig deeper into the objections of the Christian faith and to learn about both sides of the issues.

Sessions include:

  1. Isn’t the Bible a Myth?
  2. How Can You Say There Is Only One Way to God?
  3. What Gives You the Right to Tell Me How to Live My Life?
  4. Why Does God Allow Suffering?
  5. Why Is the Church Responsible for So Much Injustice?
  6. How Can God Be Full of Love and Wrath at the Same Time?

This pack contains one guide and one DVD.

    This was purchased for the small group my husband and I host in our home.

    We watched it to review before our next study night and neither of us care for it at all, it does not meet our expectations of what is stated in the product description. It seems to give more arguments NOT to believe in Christianity. Tim Keller "wrapping it up" at the end of the 20 minutes does not address everything said by the non-believers, and does not answer their objections which we thought it would do, since the title is "The Reason for God".

    The discussion guide and format of the discussion group in the DVD is geared more towards training a believer to be more effective when sharing their faith with a non-believer, but a non-believer watching this video will be pushed even further away from accepting Christ.

    I do not recommend this study for any new believers or non-believers on the fence

    If there is one thing we need more of in the church, that is believers who can think and have a grown up intellegent conversation about our faith with people who are opposed to Christianity. To be able to do this requires more than acceptance based on what someone else has said, but based on a foundation found in Scripture. The Reason for God DVD and leader guide provided for us a resource to begin the conversations and investigate out beliefs without having to have a background in apologetics. The DVD is done with excellence and the discussion guide is well written with Discussion questions and answer guides included. I highly recommend this series if you are looking for something to ground your adults and teens in the faith by helping them think on their own and search the Scriptures for themselves.

Q: Can this DVD be used with teens? In other words, would a youth pastor/volunteer, have success in using this with 14 or 16 year-olds? Would average teens understand this DVD and connect with it, or would they most likely find it boring and irrelevant?


Some teens will find this study fascinating, others will find it less than exciting. A great way to test the group would be to ask a couple of questions and see what happens.

If you ask "Why does God allow evil in the world", and no one seems interested, this is not the study for your group.

If it launches into a huge discussion, this study will help guide the discussion and give some resources to work with.

If possible, you may want to have someone who has experience with this kind of material leading the discussion. For a person with limited subject knowledge to lead it, there may be more confusion than clarification to younger minds who may not have their foundation in God firmly established.

Q: Could you post the titles of each session, or a picture of the table of contents?


Session 1 - Isn't the Bible a Myth?/Hasn't Science Disproved Christianity? Session 2 - How Can You Say There is Only One Way to God?/What About Other Religions? Session 3 - What Gives You the Right to Tell Me How to Live My Life?/Why are There So Many Rules? Session 4 - Why Does God Allow Suffering?/ Why is There So Much Evil in the World? Discussion 5 - Why is the Church Responsible for So Much Injustice?/Why are Christians Such Hypocrites? Discussion 6 - How Can God be Full of Love and Wrath at the Same Time?/ How Can God Send Good People to Hell?

Q: How long is each video session?


Each DVD session is approximately 20 minutes long.

Q: Is it necessary to read Keller's book to accompany this DVD study, or is the discussion guide sufficient?


The DVD is designed to be used with the discussion guide. The book would offer additional insights into the subject matter which may better help to facilitate the study especially if you have a very inquisitive group.

Q: Is there a difference between the discussion guide (sold with the DVD) and the participants guide (sold separately)? I am talking about the series by Tim Keller The Reason for God.


The discussion guide and the participant's guide are the same book.
