The Reason For God by Timothy Keller - An Intellectual Take on Christianity

3 min read

If I say that we are going to review a theological book, you might think that my aim is to discuss another boring theological book. The Reason for God is not a typical theological book that aims to teach you about Christianity or more specifically about the Bible. The book written This is one of the well-written, cogent books that instead of imposing you dogmatic beliefs, makes you think about and find the answer of many important questions in respect of Christian religion. This is an apologetic book that will help you solve many of your doubts, no matter what kind of believer you are.

The Reason for Good DVD edition is a six-session Bible study intended for individual or small group Bible study. It consists of live and unscripted conversations with a group of people. Each of the individuals in the group addresses his/her own doubts and objections to Christianity. With his extensive knowledge of literature, philosophy and scripture, the author of the book Timothy Keller takes an intellectual take on Christianity and with that challenges the members of the group and the Christian leaders in general to take part in a reasoning debate.  

The six sessions included in the book and the DVD are in fact common questions not only non-believers but believers too have in respect of their faith. It is a matter of questions we've all heard about from others and also questions we sometimes ask ourselves.

  1. Isn't the Bible a Myth?
  2. How Can You Say There Is Only One Way to God?
  3. What Gives You the Right to Tell Me How to Live My Life?
  4. Why Does God Allow Suffering?
  5. Why Is the Church Responsible for So Much Injustice?
  6. How Can God Be Full of Love and Wrath at the Same Time?

The most important reason why you shouldn't doubt to read the book or buy the Reason for God DVD, is that it will help you learn how to engage yourself and others to engage in dialogue about the six most common matters of objections to the teaching and true meaning of Christianity. No matter if you choose the book or the DVD, one thing is certain, it will broaden your horizons and open your mind to the true teaching about Christian religion. Simply, said you will no longer have to ask questions that might compromise your beliefs and cause doubts in your head.
