What is the Reading Room?
The Reading Room is a once-a-month Book Club for sceptics or anyone exploring the Christian God. We explore some of the most frequently asked questions on Religion and God through a book “The Reason for God”.
Each session starts at 8pm and we spend one hour or so discussing one chapter from the book. You get to air your views and listen to others on their viewpoints of these topics. The formal time ends at 9.30pm and thereafter, people stay back to continue informal chats and discussion over wine and cheese.
Book: The Reason for God
“The Reason for God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism” is a New York Times’ bestselling. The author, Timothy Keller, the founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, addresses the frequent doubts that skeptics, and even ardent believers, have about religion. Using literature, philosophy, real-life conversations, and potent reasoning, Keller explains how the belief in a Christian God is, in fact, a sound and rational one.
