The Reason for Buying Keller

I began listening to Tim Keller MP3s at the recommendation of a friend a few years ago. He never fails to stimulate and challenge me. (And he’s a real wit.) As I heard him give wise point after incisive comment about evangelism, I knew I had to buy whatever book he put out on the subject.

I wasn’t disappointed. The Reason for God has been a real help to me as I prepare myself for difficult questions in evangelism. (Right now, I’m not getting any difficult questions because my current harvest field thinks it’s already Christian, but that won’t always be.)

Here’s a sample, from a section on responding to questions on the problem of evil:

If you have a God great and transcendent enough to be mad at because he hasn’t stopped evil and suffering in the world, then you have (at the same moment) a God great and transcendent enough to have good reasons for allowing it to continue that you can’t know.

Sample some more here. Buy the book here.
