User reviews about this book
Same old arguments
The same old arguments for theism are used here. Nothing new, nothing spectacular. As a former Christian, I ate this book up back in the day, however, rereading the arguments presented within now, as I have discovered more information and grown intellectually,
leaves me feeling like Keller takes anyone who doesn’t share his very narrow view of the Biblical texts, complex as they are, as a fool.
A Strong Guide to Christianity
By Big Daddy Mas
An excellent book that makes the case for God and the logic and truth of becoming and being Christian. It has motivated us to hold a class at our church. It will challenge the believer and non believer.
This is without a doubt the best Christian book that I have read in years. He explains better than most the truth of the Gospel.
Must-read for those interested in the intellectual arguments for and against Christianity.
By Jay Sourbeer
Timothy Keller’s book is an easily accessible, convincing presentation of the intellectual arguments for faith. The author aptly reasons through dense philosophical and theological concepts such as sin, miracles, the triune God, and hell in easy-to-understand language, while acknowledging the purely auxiliary nature of his intellectual points to the central truths of the Gospel. Highly recommended.
Probably the best book I've read thus far!
As a believer who often encounters some of the same questions, this book has given me some valuable insight. I always tried to explain some of the same points but failed miserably. His explanations are on-point and I can now answer questions with far more confidence when encountering a curious atheist. This is not meant to be proof for God as some people below suggested, but rather it is to provide better insight on the real meaning of Christianity and makes a very well thought out case in response to all the doubts and accusations Christians are faced with.
Same old thing
If you've read anything about the debate of theism, this is nothing new. Definitely not worth the price. Borrow from the library instead.
Again, "that which can be asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence"
I am trying to continue with this book past the first chapter, but the author is repeatedly drawing conclusions based on premises so malleable that they contain an almost infinite number of potential meanings, resulting in conclusions of limited usefulness.
Readers who have honed their critical thinking skills will find that following the author's arguments from premises to conclusion can be a frustrating and often invalid process.
I found this book to be very insightful. I like the different takes to common issues.
Same as always
Mr. Keller is a very good writer, and on that note, I give this book 5 stars. However, this book is meant to answer the big questions about god, and it fails miserably. He does actually acknowledge the questions, but then he just makes very well thought out excuses.
