The reason is for God
Why does God allow suffering?
Are not all religions equal?
Is a loving God the origin of hell?
Why is Christianity so exclusive?
Is God at the origin of wars of religion?
These important questions are the source of skepticism understandable. Even the most fervent believers can be confused by these realities. Timothy Keller, Pastor and Author, Responds to the Most Frequent "Doubts" Presented to Him.
Reason for God examines each question and reveals the presuppositions associated with them. Keller reasons from literature, philosophy, and numerous interviews. It explains how the Christian faith is healthy, rational, adopted by serious people, of intellectual integrity. Keller approaches this dialogue tactfully and frankly to allow for a deep search for the truth.
Written for atheists, agnostics and skeptics, Keller's book provides us with an intelligent foundation upon which genuine believers can lean when they are assailed by those who have elevated the rejection of the faith to the rank of obviousness. Reason for God deeply challenges this ideology and points to the true path and purpose of Christianity.
