I love the good news of Jesus Christ. I love good writing. And I love Tim Keller. Therefore it is very difficult for me to be objective about The Reason for God.
Given my past experience I expected this book to be a feast and it is; well written, cogent, interesting and full of fascinating information.
It also raises lot of questions for me - which to my mind is what a good book should do. I raise some of these in the review below. I am calling this review "critical" because I want to "critique" the book in the old fashioned sense - interacting with it, looking and strengths and weaknesses and most of all engaging with a few of the major questions and issues raised by it.
I hope this will be seen as "constructive criticism" rather than an attempt to put down or be negative about a book which I am frankly grateful for. We give praise to the Lord that at last we have a major popular work which really does scratch where it itches!
Besides which in apologetic terms I have the utmost respect for Tim Keller. I doubt there is a better apologist in the Western world today. I do not "critique" as an equal but as a learner. I have already indicated the strengths of the book, and as we look through it, we will continue to analyse these.
However there are a couple of minor criticisms to make before we actually get into the detail of the book itself. Firstly I have a problem with the title. I am not sure what it means. I don't wish to be pedantic, but I still don't know what the reason for God is.
I'm not even sure that there is a reason. Maybe it's my Europeanness but I tend to think that God does not need a reason.
It almost implies as though we have to invent one - along the lines of why does God exist? Obviously the book is about giving reasonable answers to those who believe that belief in God is unreasonable. But the title does not really convey that for me.
The subtitle "Belief in an age of Skepticism" also causes a question in my mind - is this really an age of scepticism? I accept that there are many sceptics - perhaps especially in New York - but as a Christian I really wish that people would be a whole lot more sceptical. I would be more inclined to say that this is an age of gullibility - although as Keller points out in his introduction it is also a cynical age.
Of smaller concern is the cover - just as a matter of personal taste I found it dull and unimaginative. It does not grab you.Srimad-Bhagavatam, an epic philosophical and literary classic, holds a prominent position in India's voluminous written wisdom.
