Description

We live in an age of scepticism. Our society places such faith in empirical reason, historical progress, and heartfelt emotion that it's easy to wonder: why should anyone believe in Christianity? What role can faith and religion play in our modern lives?

In this thoughtful and inspiring book, pastor and New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller invites sceptics to consider that Christianity is as relevant now as ever. As human beings, we cannot live without meaning, satisfaction, freedom, identity, justice and hope - and Christianity provides us with unsurpassed resources to meet all these needs.

Written for both sceptic and believer, Making Sense of God shines a light on the profound value and importance of Christianity in our lives.

Review quote

Keller writes engagingly for the thoughtful secularist, at a more stretching level than one might expect in a book for the popular market... Keller's tone throughout it characteristically gracious... he is refreshingly honest. * The Church Times * Any book by Timothy Keller is a worthwhile read and this one will not disappoint.... The book certainly makes a lot of sense of mankind in relation to God... well worth a read and a reread. * Presbyterian Herald * This new book from Tim Keller is the follow-up to the hugely successful The Reason for God and particularly addresses those that believe that Christianity lacks any cultural relevance. He tackles their objections, compares Christianity to secularism, and addresses many 'mis-beliefs' that have arisen over what Christianity is, or what Christians believe. * Together Magazine *

About Timothy Keller

Timothy Keller was born in Pennsylvania and educated at Bucknell University, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and Westminster Theological Seminary. He became a Christian at university, was ordained by the Presbyterian Church in America and worked as a pastor for nine years.

He was asked to start Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan in 1989, and under his leadership the church's congregation experienced unprecedented growth from 50 to 5,000 members. His target audience consists mainly of urban professionals, whom he believes exhibit disproportionate influence over the culture and its ideas.

The 'Influentials' Issue of New York Magazine featured Dr. Keller as "the most successful Christian evangelist in the city by recognizing that young professionals and artists are 'disproportionately influential' in creating the country's culture and that you have to meet this coveted demographic on its own terms."

Timothy Keller is renowned for his clear, reasoned approach to Christian apologetics and his book THE REASON FOR GOD: BELIEF IN AN AGE OF SCEPTICISM was named Book of the Year for 2008 by World Magazine.

Timothy Keller lives in New York City with his wife Kathy and sons David, Michael and Jonathan.
