A highly recommended read

I have just finished reading Reason For God by Tim Keller. This is without a doubt the best apologetics book that I have read which looks at answering the objections that I as a Christian face. Tim Keller engages with the questions and does a fair amount to deconstruct rather than nuke, the arguments, which I found a challenge because I have been a bit of a 'nuker' in the past! He then goes on to say this is why it is totally reasonable and rational to believe in and follow Jesus. He doesn't offer absolute proofs, but instead builds a strong case by looking at the world in which we live and the dilemmas we all face.

I for one have found the book invaluable and it has started to retrain my mind when it comes to speaking to people who do not know a living relationship with my King. It's not always the easiest read and like anything I'm sure that you will find plenty on the web that will argue against some of his points, but as a whole this is a book that I would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone who wants to help their friends further along the road to discovering a new life in the Kingdom of God.

It's good to get back to the blog fold, after just dabbling over the last couple of months.

Looking forward to seeing you next weekend.
