Questioning Christianity

“Does Christianity make sense emotionally, culturally and intellectually?” — Tim Keller


Questioning Christianity was a seven-week series that was held in the spring of 2014 for seekers, skeptics and those exploring Christianity led by Tim Keller.  The purpose was to create a safe and open space to explore the toughest claims of the Christian faith with friends  who didn't identify with the Christian faith but was open to learning more. 

During the series each session featured a talk by Tim and covered a topic that was related to a larger question, "Does Christianity make sense emotionally, culturally and intellectually?". After the talk, audience members texted and emailed in questions for a Q&A with Tim that was moderated by Susan Nacorda (Redeemer Downtown Community Group Director). Each night ended with a reception which  provided more opportunities to dialogue about the topics covered each night.

QC Groups


Are you someone exploring Christianity and interested in discussing the topics that were covered in Questioning Christianity? Join an eight-week small group discussion for seekers, skeptics and those who don't consider themselves Christian.

Questioning Christianity Groups will be peer-led discussion groups hosted in various apartments around Manhattan and will explore topics found in Tim’s book, The Reason For God. Topics such as the problem of evil, science and faith and the exclusivity of Christianity, the history of the church and Christians and the credibility of the Bible. For those of you who know someone exploring Christianity, we invite you to bring them to a discussion group to process the claims of Jesus together.
