The remarkable New York Timesbestseller by the "C.S. Lewis for the 21st century" (Newsweek). A New York Timesbestseller people can believe in-by a "pioneer of the new urban Christians" (Christian Todaymagazine). Timothy Keller, the founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, addresses the frequent doubts that skeptics and non-believers bring to religion. Using literature, philosophy, anthropology, pop culture, and intellectual reasoning, Keller explains how the belief in a Christian God is, in fact, a sound and rational one. To true believers he offers a solid platform on which to stand against the backlash toward religion spawned by the Age of Skepticism. And to skeptics, atheists, and agnostics he provides a challenging argument for pursuing the reason for God.

Author Biography
