Publisher's Summary

An intelligent, intellectually rigorous examination of why the Christian faith still makes sense in an age of scepticism.

As the pastor of an inner-city church in New York City, Timothy Keller has compiled a list of the most frequently voiced doubts sceptics bring to his church as well as the most important reasons for faith.

In The Reason for God, he addresses each doubt and explains each reason. Keller uses literature, philosophy, real-life conversations, and reasoning to explain how faith in a Christian God is a soundly rational belief held by thoughtful people of intellectual integrity with deep compassion for those who truly want to know the truth.

One of my favourite books

I initially read this book soon after becoming a Christian and have just listened to the audio version. It was helpful then and is still one of my favourite books. I recommend to non-christians too as the book is really written for you and answers many of the difficult questions we all have with God and religion.

Excellent summary of the Christian faith

This is very well laid out and covers all the main objections people think they have about Christianity.

Great to hear the writer 'talk' his book.

His humble way of speaking and analysis is what has makes him one of the greats. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
