This new book from Tim Keller is the follow-up to the hugely successful The Reason for God and particularly addresses those that believe that Christianity lacks any cultural relevance. He tackles their objections, compares Christianity to secularism, and addresses many 'mis-beliefs' that have arisen over what Christianity is, or what Christians believe. (Together Magazine)
Any book by Timothy Keller is a worthwhile read and this one will not disappoint.... The book certainly makes a lot of sense of mankind in relation to God... well worth a read and a reread. (Presbyterian Herald)
Keller writes engagingly for the thoughtful secularist, at a more stretching level than one might expect in a book for the popular market... Keller's tone throughout it characteristically gracious... he is refreshingly honest. (The Church Times)
In an age of scepticism, can it really make sense to believe in Christianity's claims?

So enjoyed reading this and sharing quotes on social media to sceptical friends, it caused a few conversations.
This has the usual gracious tone from Tim Keller. I always love his ability to build his case using a wide array of sources, (the footnotes alone take up 30% of the book and could provide a years reading on their own!)
He argues that secular humanism is also based on certain presuppositions that cannot be proved. There are faith based beliefs which cannot be scientific proved. He then seeks to convey that theistic belief makes more sense of the world in terms of morality, identity, purpose/meaning and beauty than secular humanism does.
The final section of the book argues for the validity of the person and works of Jesus in particular.
Will it convince a committed atheist, probably not, I dont think any book alone will do that. Should it raise questions, yes. Should it make us all think carefully, yes definitely.
A must read, for Christians to think more carefully about our atheist and agnostic peers, our own ideas and for the bibliography !!
