The Reason for God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism

One of our pastors said Timothy Keller's book, The Reason for God was a good book, so I read it while traveling last week. It's a fine book for Christians to read, but it really would make good recommended reading for one's skeptic or atheist friends.

Keller takes many of the common modern arguments against genuine belief in God and gives good, solid answers. He uses the Bible and works by C.S. Lewis, Tolkien, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Kierkegaard, and others to bolster his arguments for belief in the living God. (He even mentioned Wendell Berry!)

It was both a good read and a good manual for thoughtful answers to often-heard questions.
