Canon J.John communicate profound truths in a fun and inspiring way. In this link entitled how to become a Christian he gives 4 reasons for faith and talks about how God wants to communicate with us and how He came into the world we know so that we can connect with Him. So who is this God? We all have different ideas of what God is like. Many of us imagine him as a stern old man, ready to point the finger and tell us off, or as the ‘Great Architect’ who set the world in motion then sat back and observed us from a distance. Why not look beyond these images and discover something more about who God really is and exactly how he feels about us.

Making Sense of God
We live in an age of scepticism. Our society places such faith in empirical reason, historical progress, and heartfelt emotion that it’s easy to wonder: why should anyone believe in Christianity? What role can faith and religion play in our modern lives?
In this thoughtful and inspiring book, pastor and New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller invites sceptics to consider that Christianity is as relevant now as ever. As human beings, we cannot live without meaning, satisfaction, freedom, identity, justice and hope – and Christianity provides us with unsurpassed resources to meet all these needs. Written for both sceptic and believer, Making Sense of God shines a light on the profound value and importance of Christianity in our lives.

In THE REASON FOR GOD, he addresses each doubt and explains each reason.Keller uses literature, philosophy, real-life conversations, and reasoning to explain how faith in a Christian God is a soundly rational belief, held by thoughtful people of intellectual integrity with a deep compassion for those who truly want to know the truth
