"The End of Faith. The God Delusion. God Is Not Great. Letter to a Christian Nation." Bestseller lists are filled with doubters. But what happens when you actually doubt your doubts? Although a vocal minority continues to attack the Christian faith, for most Americans, faith is a large part of their lives: 86 percent of Americans refer to themselves as religious, and 75 percent 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. And in "The Reason for God," he single-handedly 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. " The Reason for God " challenges such ideology at its core and points to the true path and purpose of Christianity. 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. Look out for Timothy Keller's latest book, "The Songs of Jesus," coming from Viking on November 10, 2015."

Review quote

"It is easy to understand [Timothy Keller's] appeal." -"The New York Times" "In a flood of bestsellers by skeptics and atheists...Keller stands out as an effective counterpoint and defender of the faith. "The Reason for God" makes a tight, accessible case for reasoned religious belief." -"The Washington Post" "It's a provocative premise, in pursuit of which Keller...takes on nonbelievers from evolutionary biologists to the recent rash of atheist authors." -"The Boston Globe" "Reverend Tim Keller [is] a Manhattan institution, one of those open urban secrets, like your favorite dim sum place, with a following so ardent and so fast-growing that he has never thought to advertise." -"New York Magazine" "An intellectually compelling case for God." -"Publishers Weekly" "I thank God for him." -Billy Graham
