About the Book

In his book “The Reason for God: Belief in An Age of Skepticism”, Timothy Keller discusses questions from skeptics, atheists and agnostics on some fundamental and straightforward issues about religious belief in modern society. In a related, condensed fashion, “A Secular Case for Religion” discusses basic questions about the value of religion in society, especially to individuals or a broader society that are not necessarily religious.

Born out of discussions on the appropriate role of charities, and even if churches should be considered charities, “A Secular Case for Religion” examines those foundational questions in a conversational and relatable way.

Challenging skeptics to think in different ways and implicitly challenging people of faith to examine if their lives reflect their professed beliefs. “A Secular Case for Religion” addresses age old questions concerning the relation of government and religion that still resonate today.

About the Author

Phil Dove grew up in a small Midwestern town in a deeply religious family. A former naval officer, he has undergraduate and graduate degrees in political science, economics and European history.

With a curious mind, Phil enjoys meeting people with unique perspectives that provoke discussion and thought even when, or maybe especially when, ideas are noticeably different than his own. He appreciates being forced to reflect and examine his own thinking. His upbringing, education and interactions with people of different viewpoints have challenged him to re-examine his ideas and beliefs.

It is the intersection of each of these that has developed his interest in the role of government and private charity and how each play a part in the day to day lives of the diverse range of people that live within our communities and the world around us.
