This Book Has Dramatically Impacted Our Family
Our family first encountered The Reason for God nearly a year ago, and it still remains a family favorite. In fact, it is such a favorite of ours that each one of us owns a copy, and many of us have been driven to read through it multiple times.

Thoughtful, Respectful, Clarifying, and Intellectually Challenging
In this apologia for Christian faith, Tim Keller, founding pastor of New York's Redeemer Presbyterian Church, makes an intellectually compelling case for God. The first seven chapters examine the most common objections and doubts about Christianity; the second half of the book considers reasons to believe. No one but Tim Keller will agree with everything he has written here, but everything written is worthy of thought, discussion, and further contemplation.

Should Be Mandatory Reading for Any High-School Student, Valuable for Every Adult
Equally provocative for skeptics and believers, no matter what belief system your family embraces, The Reason for God should be mandatory reading for your high-school student. Many questions are raised and answered such as: "Why does God allow suffering in the world?" "How could a loving God send people to Hell?" "How can one religion be 'right' and the others 'wrong'?" "Why have so many wars been fought in the name of God?" If your child cannot articulately answer these questions, he has some reading to do. These are the issues his peers are wrestling with, these are the questions he will encounter around the office water cooler or at a homeschool meeting. Your children need to be prepared. They need The Reason for God.

About the Author
Timothy Keller was born and raised in Pennsylvania, and educated at Bucknell University, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and Westminster Theological Seminary. He was first a pastor in Hopewell, Virginia. In 1989, he started Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan with his wife, Kathy, and their three sons. Today, Redeemer has nearly six thousand regular attendees at five services, a host of daughter churches, and is planting churches in large cities throughout the world.

Newsweek called Timothy Keller "a C. S. Lewis for the twenty-first century".
