God is not dead in Gotham

Cheer up, you’re worse than you think,” Rev. Timothy Keller says with a smile. He’s explaining that humans are more weak, more fallen, more warped than they “ever dare admit or even believe.” Then comes the good news: At the same time people are “more loved in Christ and more accepted than they could ever imagine or hope.” Many Millennial Christians in NYC attend his Presbyterian church--and respond to his message. “Every other religion has a founder that says: ‘I’ll show you the way to God. Only Christianity of all the major world religions has a founder that says: ‘I’m God, come to find you.’

My little book group that met at Panera’s a few years ago used his book,

The Reason for God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism   -     By: Timothy Keller

And it is outstanding.  Maybe I’ll reread it.

Part 1: The Leap of Doubt There Can't Be Just One True Religion How Could a Good God Allow Suffering? Christianity is a Straitjacket The Church is Responsible for So Much Injustice How Can a Loving God Send People to Hell? Science Has Disproved Christianity You Can't Take the Bible Literally Part 2: The Reasons for Faith The Clues of God The Knowledge of God The Problem of Sin Religion and the Gospel The (True) Story of the Cross The Reality of the Resurrection The Dance of God
