Publisher's Summary

We are unavoidably hope-based creatures. Imagine two women given the same boring task to do eight hours a day in the same conditions - but you tell one woman she will be paid £15,000 for a year of this work, and you tell the other that she will be paid £15 million. Each woman in identical circumstances will be experiencing those circumstances in completely different ways, because what we believe about the future determines how we live in the present.

In this dynamic new audiobook, New York pastor and best-selling author Tim Keller explores the biblical understanding of hope. A profound grasp of what we are hopeful for, he argues, can reenergise and transform us personally; can help us face death; can influence our community practices with regard to sex, money and power; and can even be applied globally to renew our culture.

Best book I’ve found exploring faith and God

I’ve read a number of books arguing for the existence of God and the credibility of Christianity, this rates amongst the best, as it very effectively peals back thought, both religious and secular and presents things as they actually are. If you’re looking into faith or at all curious about the question of God, I’d highly recommend this book.

One of the best books I have listened to

I have listened to/ read many different books on wether or not God exists. I have also watched dozens of lectures and debates on the issue. This book is by far more intellectual, intelligently nuanced and thoroughly thought through than any other book I have read on this subject including any of Dawkins works. I highly recommend to anybody seriously interested in the subject.

Through this book I found God

I read this book merely out of interest in some of the arguments in favour of a creator. I ended up finding God.

I don't agree with everything in the book, and I could argue against some of the assertions, but it set me on the path.

Among the most important books you could ever read

This book has not only helped me to understand myself and the nature of the world, but it has also given me the answer I've been looking all my life (even when I didn't know I was looking for it). If you landed on this page is probably because you are looking for this too. Don't hesitate, this book will open your mind in ways all psychology, philosophy and the modern world promises but can't deliver...

What you need to know.

Answering huge questions in a listener friendly way. Passed onto an atheist friend who then had some faith misconceptions addressed.

thought provoking, soul searching stuff!

Takes a close look at today's secular thinking and argues in a balanced way for the Christian worldview.

I wish I had read this year's ago

I wish I had read this book 35 years ago. Many of my secular friends will be receiving an invitation to read it.

A fantastic starting point for people.

Absolutely loved Timothy Keller's 'Making Sense of God'. Intellectually stimulating and well written, this is a great book to read if you're looking to understand more about the Christian faith and why it's perfectly reasonable to believe in God.

Clear, concise and reasonable

Loved the clear, thought through explanations of the reasonableness of Christian faith and the philosophical background along with it.
