The Reason for God

Belief in an Age of Skepticism

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

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.



From Publishers Weekly

Dec 10, 2007 – In this apologia for Christian faith, Keller mines material from literary classics, philosophy, anthropology and a multitude of other disciplines to make an intellectually compelling case for God. Written for skeptics and the believers who love them, the book draws on the author s encounters as founding pastor of New York s booming Redeemer Presbyterian Church. One of Keller s most provocative arguments is that all doubts, however skeptical and cynical they may seem, are really a set of alternate beliefs. Drawing on sources as diverse as 19th-century author Robert Louis Stevenson and contemporary New Testament theologian N.T. Wright, Keller attempts to deconstruct everyone he finds in his way, from the evolutionary psychologist Richard Dawkins to popular author Dan Brown. The first, shorter part of the book looks at popular arguments against God s existence, while the second builds on general arguments for God to culminate in a sharp focus on the redemptive work of God in Christ. Keller s condensed summaries of arguments for and against theism make the scope of the book overwhelming at times. Nonetheless, it should serve both as testimony to the author s encyclopedic learning and as a compelling overview of the current debate on faith for those who doubt and for those who want to re-evaluate what they believe, and why.

Customer Reviews

Excellent for Christian and Non-Christian Alike

The iBookstore description above of the book says it all. If you want an irenic, substantive examination of and answer to objections against Christianity, you'll find this an excellent book. What C.S. Lewis did with Mere Christianity back in the 1940's, Keller does for us today.

Superb!

Effectively addresses most of the doubts skeptics struggle with when evaluating Christianity.

A modern classic

I simply have not read a better book that so wisely addresses modern doubts with religion and Christianity, as well as positively representing the Christian faith. Anyone from any spiritual persuasion should read this, which is why it was a New York Times best seller for so long.
