Making sense of God: An Invitation to the Skeptical (Dieu, le débat essentiel)
PresentationDoes Christian Faith Make Sense?
Reason has conquered your belief in God?
In the Christian tradition, you no longer go to church?
Disappointed by religion, you have rejected God?
Have science and skepticism replaced your need for God?
You try to answer the big questions of life:
Where can I find authentic fulfillment?
Can I hope for real justice?
How to explain this feeling of deep dissatisfaction?
It is time to look again at the question of God. We live in an age which values rationality, progress and the right for everyone to determine the meaning of life, and its goals. Does the notion of God or a higher power make sense? Does faith or religion have any value to offer?
Timothy Keller , pastor and author, invites the reader to think deeply. It offers a thoughtful philosophical journey through which skeptics, and anyone interested in the Christian faith, get a sense of the validity and value of the existence of God.
God, the essential debate highlights the deep value and importance of Christianity. What if the latter provided us with unparalleled resources to answer questions related to fulfillment, personal freedom, identity, justice and hope?
This book will help you:

benefit from the thoughts and experience of a senior author on the subject.
