The reason for god reason to read By Luke, Mar 08 This book is exactly what you need. We all have questions or at least have people around us who raise questions about what we believe, well this book is a great resource.

Not only is it easy to read but Timothy writes with such meat that you walk away from each chapter equipped. I could not recommend it more for anybody who is thinking through what they believe.

Here is a thread which runs all the way through the book. TK simply doesn't accept that there are such things as secular humanitarian values. He thinks all the atheist humanitarians have got the reason for god values from God but are in denial or are just ignorant of the source of their values.
