A New York Times bestseller people can believe in—by “a pioneer of the new urban Christians” (Christian Today magazine).

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.

“In a flood of bestsellers by skeptics and atheists...Timothy Keller stands out as an effective counterpoint and a defender of the faith. The Reason for God makes a tight, accessible case for reasoned religious belief.”
Washington Post

“It’s a provocative premise, in pursuit of which Keller...takes on nonbelievers from evolutionary biologists to the recent rash of atheist authors.”
The Boston Globe

“Reverend Tim Keller [is] a Manhattan institution, one of those open urban secrets, like your favorite dim sum place, with a following so ardent and so fast-growing that he has never thought to advertise.”
Newsweek

“The most successful Christian Evangelist in [New York City]...with intellectual, brimstone-free sermons that manage to cite Woody Allen alongside Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.”
New York Magazine

“An intellectually compelling case for God.”
Publishers Weekly

“I thank God for him.”
—Billy Graham
