The Reason for God by Tim Keller

posted Sep 7, 2013, 12:17 PM by Fccea Webmaster
Tim Keller is pastor of the Redeemer Presbyterian Church in the heart of New York City, a church that he founded in 1989 despite almost unanimous predictions that a church adhering to and teaching the historic Christian faith could never survive in such a setting. Starting with about 50 people, the church has grown to over 5,000 members and has been instrumental in starting more than 100 other churches in the City and around the world. Keller combines a pastor’s heart with keen insight into how to communicate the gospel and defend it both intellectually and spiritually to a bright, skeptical audience.

The Reason for God is one of the finest books on apologetics (defending the Christian faith) that I have come across. Keller makes his case graciously and clearly, but with devastating effectiveness. He is primarily focused on demonstrating that belief in God is the most logical explanation for the world we inhabit and the way we live. His contention is that if we cannot finally and definitively “prove” God, we can certainly show that He is the most logical explanation for the way our universe and mankind function. He shows that the resurrection of Christ is the ultimate demonstration of God in a verifiable sense and effectively reasons for its reality. Keller’s writing, while intellectually astute, is easy to follow and clearly reasoned. It will strengthen your own faith as a believer and is the number one book I would recommend to give to someone who is questioning.
