Tim Keller adds his voice in response to the recent prominent books advancing atheism. A veteran pastor in the Manhattan area of New York, Keller has been compiling of list of most frequently voiced “doubts” skeptics bring to his church. His forthcoming The Reason for God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism is written with atheists, agnostics, and skeptics in mind, but it also seeks to strengthen the hope of Christians everywhere as they seek to stand firm against the backlash of secularism. From the Westminster Bookstore’s description:
Why is there suffering in the world? How could a loving God send people to Hell? Why isn’t Christianity more inclusive? Shouldn’t the Christian God be a god of love? How can one religion be “right” and the rest “wrong”? Why have so many wars been fought in the name of God? These are just a few of the questions even ardent believers wrestle with today. In this book, Tim Keller uses literature, philosophy, real-life conversations and reasoning, and even pop culture to explain how faith in a Christian God is a soundly rational belief, held by thoughtful people of intellectual integrity with a deep compassion for those who truly want to know the truth.
