Making Sense of God

An Invitation to the Sceptical

'Some years ago I wrote a book called The Reason for God, which, as the title suggests, provides a case, a set of reasons, for belief in God and Christianity. While that book has been helpful to many, it does not begin far back enough for many people. Some will not even begin the journey of exploration, because, frankly, Christianity does not seem relevant enough to be worth their while. "Doesn't religion call for leaps of blind faith in an age of science, reason, and technology?" they ask. "Surely fewer and fewer people will feel the need for religion and it will die out."'This volume begins by addressing those objections, challenging both the assumption that the world is getting more secular and the belief that secular, nonreligious people are basing their view of life mainly on reason. I go on to compare and contrast how Christianity and secularism seek to provide meaning, satisfaction, freedom, identity, a moral compass, and hope - all things so crucial that we cannot live life without them. I argue that Christianity makes the most emotional and cultural sense, that it explains these life issues in the most trenchant ways, and that it gives us unsurpassed resources for meeting these inescapable human needs.'If you think Christianity doesn't hold much promise of making sense to a thinking person, then this book is written for you.'
Portrait

Timothy Keller was born in Pennsylvania and educated at Bucknell University, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and Westminster Theological Seminary. He became a Christian at university, was ordained by the Presbyterian Church in America and worked as a pastor for nine years.

He was asked to start Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan in 1989, and under his leadership the church´s congregation experienced unprecedented growth from 50 to 5000 members. His target audience consists mainly of urban professionals, whom he believes exhibit disproportionate influence over the culture and its ideas.

The ´Influentials´ Issue of New York Magazine featured Dr. Keller as "the most successful Christian evangelist in the city by recognizing that young professionals and artists are ´disproportionately influential´ in creating the country´s culture and that you have to meet this coveted demographic on its own terms."

Timothy Keller is renowned for his clear, reasoned approach to Christian apologetics and his book THE REASON FOR GOD: BELIEF IN AN AGE OF SKEPTICISM was named Book of the Year for 2008 by World Magazine.

Timothy Keller lives in New York City with his wife Kathy and sons David, Michael and Jonathan.
