Publisher's Description

Why does God allow suffering in the world?
How could a loving God send people to Hell?
Why isn't Christianity more inclusive?
How can one religion be "right" and the others be "wrong"?
Why have so many wars been fought in the name of God?

These are just a few of the questions and doubts even ardent believers wrestle with today. As the founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, Timothy Keller has compiled a list of the most frequently voiced "doubts" skeptics bring to his church. And in The Reason for God, he single-handedly dismantles each of them. 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 a deep compassion for those who truly ant to know the truth.

Writing for atheists, agnostics and skeptics, Keller also provides an intelligent platform on which true believers can stand their ground when bombarded by the backlash to religion created by the Age of Skepticism. The Reason for God challenges such ideology at its core and points to the true path and purpose of Christianity.
