the_reason_for_god Timothy Keller
The Reason for GodThe Reason for God by Timothy Keller is Christian apologetics at its best. Keller understands skepticism because he constantly interacts with unbelief in every guise in New York City, where he works. He plunges head on into issues such as, suffering, the Bible and science, Islamic terrorism, the exclusivity of the Christian religion, and so on. His answers are always fresh, often surprising, imaginative.
