Read in September, 2009 — I own a copy, read count: 1

One of my friends who has a degree in philosophy highly recommended this book, and so I decided to sit down and read it. Once I started, I couldn't stop reading!

Timothy Keller makes the case for Christianity and communicates the central message of the faith in a compelling, readable, likeable way. It was as if he were sitting down and speaking with me. (He always comes off as fairly academic in person, and his book definitely shows this!)

He addresses some of the loaded questions for the millenial generation (how can there only be one religion, isn't the church culpable for historic grievances), and also addresses some of the old questions about science and faith.

He expresses the Christian worldview (summarized by creation, fall, redemption, restoration) and weaves the good news of the faith in very well. He quotes authors, philosophers, poets, Christian thinkers, and draws from his own experiences with cosmopolitan young people in New York City.
