really liked it
Recommended for: Believers and non-believers alike
Read in April, 2008

As a member of Redeemer Presbyterian Church, founded by the author, Tim Keller, it seemed a requisite that I read his recently published book. I probably wouldn't have bothered to pick it up otherwise. It was written mostly as a rational argument to answer the skeptics' disbelief of the existence of God, so as someone already deeply rooted in my Christian faith, I didn't expect it would have much to offer me. I was totally wrong. The first half of the book, in which Tim debunks the seven main arguments against God he has heard over the years, serves as an excellent tool for Christians who face and must answer these same arguments. The second half, in which he describes the rational and very real proofs of God that surround us every day, is a beautifully written reminder of the very evidences that have solidified my faith in the existence of God. It was also a special pleasure to read a book written by someone I know and who is a major guiding influence in my life. Thanks for this, TK!

Fred Edwards I believe that being a decent human being is possible with or without religion. Eternal Salvation may not be won without it, but that's OK...when you see God...tell God I really loved the life created for me and the beautiful world and people in it. By the way, I'm not being sarcastic or demeaning. I'm just sticking up for us agnostics who aren't so sure about everything but live a life of goodness towards others even without the promise of salvation.
