Tim Keller: Belief in an Age of Skepticism

Tim Keller, senior pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, addresses the challenges posed to belief in the contemporary world. The video is from The Veritas Forum at the University of California, Berkeley in 2008. Dr. Keller’s talk is based on his bestselling book The Reason for God.

This is a great video to watch with college-bound high school students to get them thinking about faith after high school.


1. What stuck out to you as you listened to Dr. Keller presentation?

2. What do you think were his strongest points?

3. Did you have any disagreements with Dr. Keller arguments for belief in God and the Christian faith?

4. How do you think Dr. Keller handled the questions from the audience? What can you learn from him about how to have discussions with people who disagree with your worldview?

5. If you were given the task of explaining or defending the Christian faith at an event like The Veritas Forum, how would you do it? What would the outline of your talk be? Would you be nervous? Why or why not?
