Tim Keller- The Reason For God

Tim Keller's book The Reason For God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism is now available and shipping from various online shoppes (this is my preferred one). My copy should be here within the next week and I'm really looking forward to reading it.

Here's a blurb from the "Reason for God" website:
Why does God allow suffering in the world?

How could a loving God send people to Hell?

Why isn’t Christianity more inclusive?

How can one religion be “right” and the others “wrong”?

Why have so many wars been fought in the name of God?

These are just a few of the questions and doubts even ardent believers wrestle with today. As the founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, Timothy Keller has compiled a list of the most frequently voiced “doubts” skeptics bring to his church as well as the most important reasons for faith. And in The Reason for God, he addresses each doubt and explains each reason.

Keller uses literature, philosophy, real-life conversations, and reasoning 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.

The "Reason For God" website is also set up with various sermons and study materials, plus an intro video featuring a "Welcome" message from Keller.

Here are some reviews:
As always, Steve McCoy has a helpful compilation of Keller resources. Here is a page with the "Reason For God" sermons. I've listened to all these and they are very good.

Lastly, Newsweek profiled Tim Keller.

Got my copy from WTS Books on Monday. So far, I'm very impressed. I just need more time to read!
