    In Counterfeit Gods, Keller applies his trademark approach to show us how a proper understanding of the Bible reveals the unvarnished truth about societal ideals and our own hearts. This powerful message will cement Keller's reputation as a critical thinker and pastor, and comes at a crucial time - for both the faithful and the skeptical.

    Story

    ,,,it really puts a lot of things into perspective. It's so easy to lose your way in this world we live in, and this book clearly defines a lot of the dangers that are set to derail us as individuals. For those that already have accepted that there is a God, and that Jesus has the best message in that respect, this clarifies the 2 most important focal points we should have in order to obtain all we want and need in this life: to love God above all, and our neighbors as ourself. A 'must-have' book for any honest truth seekers. Excellently read

    Few subjects are as compelling-or as endlessly variable-as love and marriage. The Bible is filled with references to husbands and wives, from the story of Adam and Eve to advice in the New Testament, each open to interpretation. In The Meaning of Marriage, Timothy Keller, pastor of New York's Redeemer Presbyterian Church and bestselling author of The Reason for God, uses the scriptures as his guide to show readers what God's call to marriage is, and why this is such a powerful call.

    Adam Shields says: "Now my most recommended book on marriage"
    "Another top tome by Timothy Keller - love it!"

    Lots of good advice on marriages and relationships in general. Clear signposts for both believers and non-believers as to how to have a successful relationship - so contrary to Hollywood's versions....the way to have a TRUE happy ending!

    The End of Faith. The God Delusion. God Is Not Great. Letter to a Christian Nation. Best seller lists are filled with doubters. But what happens when you actually doubt your doubts?

    If you could sum up The Reason for God in three words, what would they be?

    Makes perfect sense


    What other book might you compare The Reason for God to and why?

    Mere Christianity, Case for Christ series


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    He is a very animated speaker - as a reader he could be better, sound more live - but love the whole thing!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, more a study book, to hear slowly, and then a few more times. Boght the Kindle book as well, will probalby order the hard cover copy - great to study and to lend. [Can't lend the audio files nor the kindle files-yet)


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this for anyone who wants to strengthen their personal faith, gain a broader perspective about Christianity, and have answers to give to others of why you're a believer.
