The Reason for God, intriguing to all
The Reason for God is remarkably intelligent and enticing! It is one man's answers to many of our reasons for not believing in God or adhering to Biblical guidelines. You will find Tim Keller intriguing and will have difficulty putting the book down. It is well worth the read, whether or not you agree with him.

Pastor Tim Keller writes an apologetic book for the ages. The first half of the book deals with issues that keep people from believing in Christianity, such as "Why is there only one way to God?", "How can a loving God send people to Hell?", and "Hasn't Science disproved Christianity?". The second half of the book Keller gives reasons for believing in Christianity. The footnotes are also incredible, allowing a person to dig deeper into an issue if they want. This book is just brilliant. Keller pulls from his experience as a pastor in New York City. He has the pulse of what the seeker may ask or want to know. At several points in the book, one can detect he is taking aim at several of the new atheist books that have recently hit the market. However, he writes in a fair, gracious, and winsome style. This book will benefit both the seeker and believer as it gives one a greater confidence in the truth of God.
Publishers Weekly, 2007-12-10 In this apologia for Christian faith, Keller mines material from literary classics, philosophy, anthropology and a multitude of other disciplines to make an intellectually compelling case for God. Written for skeptics and the believers who love them, the book draws on the author's encounters as founding pastor of New York's booming Redeemer Presbyterian Church. One of Keller's most provocative arguments is that "all doubts, however skeptical and cynical they may seem, are really a set of alternate beliefs." Drawing on sources as diverse as 19th-century author Robert Louis Stevenson and contemporary New Testament theologian N.T. Wright, Keller attempts to deconstruct everyone he finds in his way, from the evolutionary psychologist Richard Dawkins to popular author Dan Brown. The first, shorter part of the book looks at popular arguments against God's existence, while the second builds on general arguments for God to culminate in a sharp focus on the redemptive work of God in Christ. Keller's condensed summaries of arguments for and against theism make the scope of the book overwhelming at times. Nonetheless, it should serve both as testimony to the author's encyclopedic learning and as a compelling overview of the current debate on faith for those who doubt and for those who want to re-evaluate what they believe, and why.
