Argues that most Americans are members of the Christian faith, responds to promoters of science and secularism, and addresses key questions about suffering, exclusivity, and the belief that Christianity is the only true religion.
New York Presbyterian pastor Timothy Keller presents a thoughtful and compelling response to Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris and the rest of the atheists who have churned out a string of bestsellers defending their stubborn lack of faith. Keller shows that even atheism is a system of belief, which means that faith is inescapable. It is merely a matter of directing that faith in the direction which will be most positive for yourself and for humanity in general, which Keller argues is Christianity. He addresses very difficult questions--about suffering, about war, about doubt--and synthesizes the great writers, artists, philosophers, and people of faith who have provided deep insight into them. Keller's arguments about the inherent nature of faith are essentially irrefutable, and should sway the momentum of the debate back to the side of the believers.
