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.
Timothy Keller was born and raised in Pennsylvania and educated at Bucknell University, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and Westminster Theological Seminary. His first pastorate was in Hopewell, Virginia. In 1989 he started Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City with his wife, Kathy, and their three sons. Today, Redeemer has nearly six thousand regular Sunday attendees and has helped to start more than three hundred new churches around the world. He is the author of The Songs of Jesus, Prayer, Encounters with Jesus, Walking with God Through Pain and Suffering, Every Good Endeavor, and The Meaning of Marriage, among others, including the perennial bestsellers The Reason for God and The Prodigal God.
From the Trade Paperback edition.
-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."
"I thank God for him."

usafireflyAge: 55-65Gender: male3 Stars Out Of 5Some really like thisNovember 8, 2017usafireflyAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 3Value: 2Meets Expectations: 2I know someone personally who said this book really spoke to them. For me, no. I don't really care for intellectual thoughts of mankind. I'm not scared of 'super smart' people. I have 'reasons' and it's simply different than the author's approach. Hearing more of man's thoughts in what I'm calling 'intellectual philosophical' just doesn't work for me. If a person needs 'truth' I'd do it differently starting with the Gospels and perhaps an overall 'why' I believe from others.

CRAIG BUHLER5 Stars Out Of 5THE REASON FOR GODDecember 2, 2016CRAIG BUHLERQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0This 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.
MaryEKokomo, IndianaAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5The Reason for GodApril 20, 2016MaryEKokomo, IndianaAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This 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!
