The Reason For God

Pastor’s Bookshelf - Welcome to my bookshelf! Each month I will discuss a recent book that I’ve finished. *disclaimer; I don’t always have time to sit and read physical books, but I do quite a bit of my reading through audiobooks these days.*

The Reason For God: Belief In An Age of Skepticism

By Tim Keller


I usually insist on completing a book before I recommend it to people – just in case it has a terrible ending. However, I was ready to recommend this book by the second page. I waited a few months until I had completed it – and now: I’m STILL ready to recommend this book. Tim Keller is a very well known and highly respected pastor in the Presbyterian Church of America. (PCA for short). He’s one of the smartest pastor’s I’ve ever read. I commented regularly while I was reading it that I could almost feel my brain growing while reading this book. Tim Keller built a mega church in the one place nobody thought you could build a successful church – New York City. His entire ministry has been engaging young intellectuals who ask the hardest questions of faith, and yet his church has thrived. He specializes in handling difficult questions presented by the younger generation.

The description on amazon reads..

“…to true believers he offers a solid platform on which to stand their ground against the backlash to religion created by the Age of Skepticism. And to skeptics, atheists, and agnostics, he provides a challenging argument for pursuing the reason for God.”
