Review:
As the pastor of an inner city church in New York City, Timothy Keller has compiled a list of the most frequently voiced ‘doubts’ sceptics bring to his church, as well as the most important reasons for faith. In The Reasons for God he addresses each doubt and explains each reason. Publisher
This is almost an ‘academic’ book as it goes into considerable detail yet is easy to read and understand and I found it very helpful in putting into words that I can share, many thoughts that I have not been able to resolve in my own mind before. No doubt he has changed names but each chapter starts with an opinion stated by one of his sceptic congregation which Timothy Keller then addresses and refutes with clear reasoning and biblical references. It says on the cover that this is for serious spiritual seekers or sceptics and I would encourage anyone to read this book.
I wish Hodder had presented the book with looser binding, I had to force it open, but it rewarded my efforts.
