Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kevin B | 8/9/2016

    " Really gave me new ways of thinking of some things. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Braud | 1/30/2014

    " Great fodder so far. Very interesting that this book is on the new york times best seller list. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lawson Hembree | 1/12/2014

    " Read it in conjunction with "God is not Great" by Christopher Hitchens during a class at John Brown University. Keller does a good job if pointing out relevant proofs for God both from nature/science and Scripture. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Talia | 1/10/2014

    " Very good book. Well defended and supported. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Janet | 1/3/2014

    " A post-modern successor, but not equivalent, to C.S. Lewis' Mere Christianity. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jamie | 12/19/2013

    " Love it. Good fodder for the philosopher and deep thinker, yet down to earth and doesn't lose sight of the goal. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jon Jordan | 12/17/2013

    " A great introductory text on common questions about Christianity and a defense of the faith as a valid explanation for the world that is. I highly recommend this book as an introduction to each topic, but would also recommend going deeper as Keller's chapters are not exhaustive. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie Monn | 12/2/2013

    " Great book. Enjoyed Keller's excellent insight into humankind through his pastorate in NYC. Recommend to anyone at any spiritual level. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennannej | 11/4/2013

    " Excellent beginning. Decent middle. Bored by the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tuuli Platner | 10/14/2013

    " This book has it's slow bits, but all in all conveyed some good, foundational truth in an easy-reading style. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judy | 10/12/2013

    " Keller's book addresses non-Christians or those new to the faith ask - such as "how could God allow suffering?" The second half of the book addresses the reasons for faith. The answers he gives are sound, but I did get bogged down by the end. Generally, well done. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Devin | 7/17/2013

    " Ryan and I read this book together to process. I highly recommend reading it with a friend/ spouse. Tim Keller is so good, and so heady. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim Davis | 7/9/2013

    " Have to come clean on this one - Cracker Barrel rents out the abridged audio version. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 5/30/2013

    " Keller's apologia is very intellectual yet compassionate...and is deepening my ideas and beliefs of my Christian faith "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 nate | 5/19/2013

    " A very enjoyable and helpful book. Keller has a gift for communicating tough truths with grace and humility. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 1/17/2013

    " Man. This one was good. My faith feels more grounded. I feel like I've worked through doubts through reading it and my faith is stronger. It was especially nice to read through in this time of mourning. I recommend for anyone. I wish I could coerce my non Christian friends to read it too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stinger | 9/5/2012

    " Compelling and well articulated. I'd love for an unabridged version where Keller is given the space to dive deeper into some of his points. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessi | 2/11/2012

    " Takes time to process, but well worth the read. An excellent look at the reasons for God! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rex | 1/22/2012

    " There were some chapters that I particularly liked, such as "You Can't Take the Bible Literally", "The Clues of God", and "The Reality of the Resurrection". I also enjoyed the "Intermission". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Postmandick | 1/10/2012

    " I might be going out on a limb, but really this book is a classic for our time. If ever there was a book that was so well balanced and accessible to our "Post-Modern" world this is it! I think this may be looked back upon as a classic like Lewis's Mere Christianty. Loved it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laila | 12/16/2011

    " Engaging author, fast read, makes some very good points. Heavily influenced by C.S. Lewis. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kaye | 11/6/2011

    " I suspect that I would have liked this better if I did not listen to it on audio. The author had compelling arguments, but he read them all at such a breakneck pace that it was hard to track his thinking. Despite my low rating, it's worth another look. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 barbara hinderer | 9/11/2011

    " I really liked the basis of this book, but the theology level was a bit high for me. I may have to reread it again sometime, after reading a couple other theology 'beginner' books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina | 7/6/2011

    " I highly recommend this book for person or group study. Our Sunday School class read and discussed this book and thoroughly enjoyed it. The discussions were lively and thoughtful. Keller did a great job. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalie | 5/29/2011

    " "'Is everything sad going to come untrue?' The answer of Christianity to that question is - yes. Everything sad is going to come untrue and it will somehow be greater for having once been broken and lost." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Doneva | 5/17/2011

    " Great book for those who are asking question about Christianity. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mindelynn | 4/18/2011

    " Great book for its intended purpose . . . I just don't think I like reading these types of books anymore. I do have great respect for Tim Keller though - tremendous person and writer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lyndsey | 4/11/2011

    " This book gave me a lot to think about. I especially like Keller's emphasis on respect for others' views and his discussion on why science and faith are not enemies. I'll have to re-read to continue to think about his ideas. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bryan | 4/5/2011

    " I have read this book and it was very powerful in my life. Now the second reading and i do believe it is even more convicting and powerful the second time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rhonnie | 4/3/2011

    " I highly recommend this book! To believers, nonbelievers, everyone...It's presented really well and even a rabid atheist could read this and wouldn't feel like it's being shoved down his throat. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Benjamin | 3/28/2011

    " A good standard apologetics book. More or less introductory and not substantially involved. An easy read and welcoming to anyone new to the field. Nothing ground-breaking though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maggie | 3/23/2011

    " We are working through this book in our Women's Discipleship Group. It is a solid read. The issues addressed are important to carefully consider in order to give a good answer to questions about what I believe and how and why I hold the world view I hold. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shane | 3/14/2011

    " Great book for the sceptic, seeker,or believer. Keller tackles pressing apologetic questions with balance and precision. "
