I don’t normally blog about a book while only halfway through reading it, but I’m making an exception here. Go and buy The Reason for God by Timothy Keller. While you’re doing that, buy everything that Keller has written (his previous book The Prodigal God is simply incredible).
The subtitle of the book is Belief in an Age of Skepticism. Keller divides the 250 pages into two main sections: the first half deals with the seven most common objections to Christianity, and then the second half makes a case for the Christian faith.
It’s does not seem often that a New York Times bestseller also has great theological content, but The Reason for God is just that kind of jewel. This book is good for skeptics and for believers, for different reasons of course.
Ours in an age of skepticism indeed. I’m thankful for writers like Keller who take the questions head-on and who provide cogent, biblical answers. The answers may not always be easy, but Keller is presenting the truth–and isn’t that what should matter most?
