Tim Keller does a great job of answering some of the age old questions and objections regarding Christianity. He definitely puts it in a context that the average person today would understand. I think it will especially appeal to younger people. I am age 60 and I liked it. I think his church is primarily comprised of younger, smart, urban dwellers and he seems to really have a gift for speaking to them. He makes a very persuasive, logical case for Christianity. Perhaps the best point he makes is that even supposed non-faith, agnostic, or atheist positions are in fact based on faith. For instance, the person who says four blind people approaching an elephant might describe an elephant as being four different things depending on whether they grabbed the trunk, the tail, a leg, or an ear; is in a sense saying, “I am the one person who sees clearly. I really know what the elephant looks like.” That same person might also say, “I know the truth and the truth is that all roads/faiths/religions lead to God.” That person is in fact making a faith statement. It just doesn’t appear to be one. No living person can by mere reason or scientific evidence establish the fact that in fact all the world’s religions lead to the same place hereafter. If you are going to look down on people of faith, please have the honesty to admit that you are a person of faith as well. If you’re an unbeliever in Christianity, your faith assumes that there is no God. My faith assumes that there is. My belief though is not an intellectually inferior position to yours.
