Answering the tough questions on God...

"That's ok, you can believe whatever you want...” seems like a valid saying in the 21st century, but Dr. Keller gives the Christian, agnostic, and atheist no room to sit tight with this conclusion. He concisely walks with the skeptic through their philosophy and theology, revealing the thin ice on which they so proudly stand. He rightly sums up the thoughts of this generation and how Christ’s message is not only exclusive, it’s offensive. Wrestling with the issues of evolution, pluralism, suffering, and faith - Keller brings a firm defense for Christianity. His conclusive truth is that humanity first offended God and our only solution is to submit to the offended, wrath-taking, sinner-saving, Lord Jesus. A reminiscent page-turner like that of C.S. Lewis’ Mere Christianity, Reason for God will answer the questions your friends have been, are, and will be asking you. 4.5 stars

The Reason for God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism by Tim Keller (New York: Dutton, 2008).
