Helps From Tim Keller To Know What You Believe and Why You Believe It

Here's a very helpful interview with MSNBC journalist Martin Bashir and Timothy Keller covering much of Keller's material from his New York Times Bestseller, Reason for God.  The interview lasts for a half hour, followed by an hour-long Q&A with Dr. David Eisenbach, who presents questions from the audience.  It's kind of long, but check out the time chart below to jump to a particular topic.

Q&A with Martin Barshir
0:18 – Why did you write Reason for God now?
2:22 – Are faith and reason contradictory?
