In this excuse of the Christian faith, Keller extracts material from the classics of literature, philosophy, anthropology and a multitude of other disciplines to create an intellectually convincing case for God. Written for skeptics and believers who love them, the book is based on the author’s meetings as the founder of the Church of the Presbyterian Redeemer in full swing in New York.
What makes this book stand out?
The first short part of the book analyses popular arguments against the existence of God, while the second is based on general arguments for God that culminate in a clear focus on the redeeming work of God in Christ. The condensed summaries of arguments for and against the Keller theologian sometimes make the reach of the overwhelming book.
Read it for
It is beautifully written and well briefed.
Don't read it for
This book starts off great, but its theology becomes a bit strange in the middle. I recommend for experienced pastors and theologians, but for beginners, this could be a bit misleading.
