The Reason for God by Tim Keller
Keller begins by showing that “all doubts…are really a set of alternative beliefs.” Appealing to fairness, he asks skeptics to seek the same justification for their own beliefs that they demand from Christians.
The book has two main sections. The first contains Keller’s responses to seven big problems people have with Christianity. The second contains Keller’s case for Christianity. Defense. Offense. Easy to follow.
The first section is wildly helpful and an interesting read. Keller displays humor and humility, even when writing about hell, exclusivity and science. He shows real insight into reasons people doubt, real compassion for their hesitations, and real responses to our skeptical friends.
As you search for clear words to talk about Christianity, check out this book and borrow some from Keller.
