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 New York Times bestselling 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.

A Promo for Tim Keller's "The Reason for God"
Since I mentioned Keller's book in a recent post, I thought it would be good to give a little preview. The following is from his website, but first I have to tell you that this has been called by some the best apologetic work since C.S. Lewis' Mere Christianity. It's well worth you time to check out, and if you visit Keller's site, you can read an excerpt for free. There are also a ton of free Keller resources at this site.
