In this age of skepticism our society places so much faith in empirical reason, historical progress, and heartfelt emotion that it's tempting wonder: Why should anyone believe in Christianity? What role can faith and religion play in our modern lives?
In Making Sense of God, pastor and New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller invites skeptics to consider Christianity is more relevant now than ever. As human beings, we crave meaning, satisfaction, freedom, identity, justice, and hope. We can't live without it. Christianity offers unsurpassed resources to meet those needs.
Written for both the ardent believer and the skeptic, Making Sense of God reveals the profound value and importance of Christianity in our lives.
