Penguin Audio The Reason for God: Belief in God in an Age of Skepticism, Audiobook on CD

The End of Faith. The God Delusion. God Is Not Great. Letter to a Christian Nation. Bestseller lists are filled with doubters. But what happens when you actually doubt your doubts? Although a vocal minority continues to attack the Christian faith, for most Americans, faith is a large part of their lives: 86 percent of Americans refer to themselves as religious, and 75 percent of all Americans consider themselves Christians. So how should they respond to these passionate, learned, and persuasive books that promote science and secularism over religion and faith? For years, Tim Keller has compiled a list of the most frequently voiced "doubts" skeptics bring to his Manhattan church. And in The Reason for God, he single-handedly dismantles each of them. Written with atheists, agnostics, and skeptics in mind, Keller also provides an intelligent platform on which true believers can stand their ground when bombarded by the backlash. The Reason for God challenges such ideology at its core and points to the true path and purpose of Christianity. Why is there suffering in the world? How could a loving God send people to Hell? Why isn't Christianity more inclusive? Shouldn't the Christian God be a god of love? How can one religion be "right" and the rest "wrong"? Why have so many wars been fought in the name of God? These are just a few of the questions even ardent believers wrestle with today. In this book, Tim Keller uses literature, philosophy, real-life conversations and reasoning, and even pop culture to explain how faith in a Christian God is a soundly rational belief, held by thoughtful people of intellectual integrity with a deep compassion for those who truly want to know the truth.

Read by the author. Abridged. 6 hours.

Seldom does a book take more then one reading before I move on--except for God's Word. "The Reason for God" by Tim Keller is a book I have lived with for the last six months! I've read it, outlined it and purchased an audio copy so I can listen on the half hour drive to the church. I love C.S. Lewis and this man's work ranks right up there with him. I will be ever grateful to Tim for this life-transforming work! The utter humility of the man reflects a deep understanding and relationship with Jesus forged in the course of real life. Do yourself a favor whether you believe in God or not READ THE BOOK and then READ IT AGAIN!I have been a Christian for over 50 years and a Pastor for 27 years. No book has impacted my life excluding the Bible more than The Reason for God. Thanks Tim and by the way "The Prodigal God" and "Counterfit God's" aren't bsd either.

I own this book in printed form and liked it so much I ordered the CD's to listen to when I drive. This book is life changing. I will share this book with anyone that doubts the truth of the gospel. I shared it with my Pastor and he liked the book so much he ordered one for himself. If you are a Christian, READ THIS BOOK. If you are not a CHristian, READ THIS BOOK. So, pretty much everyone should read or listen to this book!!!
