The Reason for God

I am currently reading The Reason for God by Tim Keller. I picked it up after a couple recommendations and mostly because he's a Christian on the NY Times best seller list, and that rarely happens. He takes a logical and philosophical approach and addresses the top 7 atheistic arguments against God and dissects and respectfully dispels them.

The arguments he addresses are:

There can't be just one God
How can a good God allow suffering
Belief in absolute truth is the enemy of Freedom
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

He then spends the second half of the book giving reasons for Christianity.

It's a good read if you want to catch up on some apologetics, or if you want to wrestle with your disbelief.
