Although a vocal minority continues to attack religious faith, for most Americans, faith is a large part of their lives: 86% of Americans refer to themselves as religious, and 75% of all Americans consider themselves Christians. So how should they respond to these passionate, learned, and persuasive books that promote science and secularism over religion and faith? For years, Tim Keller has compiled a list of the most frequently voiced "doubts" skeptics bring to his Manhattan church; here, he dismantles each of them. Written with atheists, agnostics, and skeptics in mind, Keller also provides an intelligent platform on which true believers can stand their ground when bombarded by the backlash. This book challenges such ideology at its core and points to the true path and purpose of Christianity.--From publisher description.

Liberal and conservative, religious and secular, Timothy Keller has lived and worked on both sides of this dichotomy, and notes that in our world both religious belief and skepticism are thriving. His purpose in "The Reason for God" is to engage both skeptics and people of faith about their deepest assumptions, and about their doubts. Both sides, he argues, make assumptions and leaps of faith which inform their decisions and their worldview, and both have legitimate questions which deserve honest thinking, to approach in a reason-able manner whether there is more rational evidence for or against the existence of a personal and knowable God.

If you enjoy the writings of C.S. Lewis, this book is for you. If you are looking for spiritual truth, this book is for you. Timothy Keller is an educated man and he shows that Christianity can withstand and welcomes intellectual scrutiny.
