The Reason for God

May 26, 2008

One of the books that I am currently reading is The Reason for God by Dr. Tim Keller. Dr. Keller is the pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan which he started in 1989. He is one of the foremost pastors that intertwines cultural relevance, sound theology, and apologetic philosophy into his messages. As a result of this approach his audience is composed mainly of Christians, atheists, skeptics atheists/skeptics turned Christians, many more intellectuals and learners that make up that great city.


The Reason for God is written primarily to skeptics of religion and Christianity, however, all Christians would do well to read the book. This book is being hailed by some as the Mere Christianity of the 21st century. However, instead of systematically ‘proving’ that Christianity is the most reasonable religion (as Lewis does), Keller opens his work by answering the top seven questions about God and Christianity that skeptics have and concludes by giving his top seven reasons for his faith. In the coming weeks I’ll be commenting on this blog from time to time on certain chapters. In the meantime, I would recommend picking up a copy of this book. It would be a great one to recommend to those skeptics in your life.

    I’ve read Keller’s book and found that the only people who find it convincing are people who already agree with him. If you’d care yo share further thoughts on the book, I’d be interested. I also have a short review of Keller’s book on my blog:
