Read Making Sense of God: An Invitation to the Skeptical Online Free - We live in an age of skepticism. Our society places such faith in empirical reason, historical progress, and heartfelt emotion that it’s easy to wonder: Why should anyone believe in Christianity? What role can faith and religion play in our modern lives?
In this thoughtful and inspiring new book, pastor and New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller invites skeptics to consider that Christianity is more relevant now than ever. As human beings, we cannot live without meaning, satisfaction, freedom, identity, justice, and hope. Christianity provides us with unsurpassed resources to meet these needs. Written for both the ardent believer and the skeptic, Making Sense of God shines a light on the profound value and importance of Christianity in our lives.

I’m not big on reformed theology. I’m not big on apologetics, either. Still, I really like Tim Keller. I don’t agree with everything he says, but there is much to learn from this seasoned pastor and author.
Making Sense of God is an apologetic (hence the subtitle An Invitation to the Skeptical). L...

I've joked for a long time with my believing friends that if anyone could bring me back to Christian faith, it'd be Tim Keller. While I still believed, no one did more to shape my worldview or open me up to further theological, cultural or philosophical exploration than he did. With this book—alo...

This book is such an encouragement to me as a believer to remember the riches we have in Christ, and that the Christian view of reality "makes the most sense emotionally, culturally, and rationally". Keller has a gentle, compelling way of communicating some profound truths as he takes the reader...

I think Making Sense of God: An Invitation to the Skeptical is Keller's best work yet. He has gone on record stating that Making Sense of God is a sort of prequel to his best selling The Reason for God. The reason he gives for such a prequel is that he felt the need to offer a well-reasoned posit...

The book is less about apologetics than I expected, although that element is still featured. Generally, the book was "up and down" for me. Some chapters were pretty interesting and others were much less so. For me, the good parts were chapters on 1) whether it's ok to do anything you want as long...

Good stuff. Not much that is new.
Keller in so many ways serves as a gateway into high-level philosophers, cultural critics, and theologians. Perhaps his greatest gift as an author is making the ideas of these thought leaders accessible.
This book is inherently very narrow in its focus - it is wri...

Tim Keller continues his run of well-researched and readable books for the seeker with an inquiring mind with this “prequel” to his excellent book “A Reason for God”. This book is a prequel because it addresses and challenges many of the background beliefs that shape the secular world view, often...

Highest rating and recommendation. Not sure it would convince the most skeptical of skeptics, but the rational, well-laid-out arguments will surely nudge some. Maybe more importantly, it can help believers to explain to skeptics why we believe what we do. Worthy of multiple readings (hence the 5...

This book contains what I find to be the most compelling arguments for a worldview that includes the God of the Bible. It spurred me on in my faith and I will use it as a regular reference.

Instead a book about making sense of God, this was more an invitation to skeptics to consider why intelligent people have found the Theistic worldview to make better sense of the big philosophical questions than a secular materialistic outlook does. Much of what he wrote seemed to be well articul...
