Many now regard only one aspect of criticism, that of the expression of disapproval or hostility. There is, however, a second aspect that is equally important: the friendly analysis and judgment of the merits and faults of a project. This volume is fundamentally a critical work in the second sense. Tim Keller’s teaching is as influential as it is persuasive and winsome. Thus, even if one does not agree with all the criticisms, judgments, and conclusions this volume does the Reformed and evangelical worlds a service by helping us to think through important issues raised by an important figure.
