At a time when scientists and critics such as Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens are questioning the validity of religion, this book uses literature, philosophy and reason to explain how faith in a Christian God is a soundly rational belief.Timothy Keller, pastor of an inner-city New York church, looks at some of the most widespread accusations levelled at Christianity, including
- Christianity's claim of exclusivity;
- how a good God could allow suffering;
- why the Church is responsible for injustice;
- if science has disproved religious belief.
This book has been written for believers and non-believers, sceptics and churchgoers, and charts a brilliantly considered and impassioned path to Christianity - a Mere Christianity for the twenty-first century.
