Although a vocal minority continues to attack religious faith, for most Americans, faith is a large part of their lives: 86% of Americans refer to themselves as religious, and 75% of all Americans consider themselves Christians. So how should they respond to these passionate, learned, and persuasive books that promote science and secularism over religion and faith? For years, Tim Keller has compiled a list of the most frequently voiced "doubts" skeptics bring to his Manhattan church; here, he dismantles each of them. Written with atheists, agnostics, and skeptics in mind, Keller also provides an intelligent platform on which true believers can stand their ground when bombarded by the backlash. This book challenges such ideology at its core and points to the true path and purpose of Christianity.--From publisher description.… (més)

Now in paperback, an intelligent, intellectually rigorous examination of why the Christian faith still makes sense in an age of scepticism.
This book has been written for believers and non-believers, sceptics and churchgoers, and charts a brilliantly considered and impassioned path to Christianity - a 'Mere Christianity' for the twenty-first century.
At a time when scientists and critics such as Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens are questioning the validity of religion, this book uses literature, philosophy and reason to explain how faith in a Christian God is a soundly rational belief.
Timothy Keller, pastor of an inner-city New York church, looks at some of the most widespread accusations levelled at Christianity, including Christianity's claim of exclusivity; how a good God could allow suffering; why the Church is responsible for injustice; and if science has disproved religious belief.

A Popular, Easy accessible writing by Keller.

Most of the content, is response to popular conversation on this topic.


For Science & Religion, I'd recommend:

1. Divine Action Project, Religion and Science, Special Divine Action Project by Oxford University

2. My Review of McGrath, Science and Religion by Alistair McGrath

3. My Review of Professor Jerry A. Coyne's work, Jerry A. Coyne

Extreemly well written and understandable. It's taken me a long time to read and I feel I should start over again. You don't feel he is shoving theology down yout throat, but he is sitting next to you having a chat. Well reasoned and acceptable arguments. ( )

I could go on, but I do not want to undermine the good there is in Keller's book. No book apart from Scripture itself is perfect and so I want to commend Reason for God but note my concerns. But I am likely to hear the retort that Keller's way of doing apologetics is better than my way of not doing it. I would prefer to do apologetics in a way consistent with Scripture and my confessional commitment. Be that as it may, perfect book or not, Keller is to be commended for venturing out into the marketplace.
