Back in 2008 Tim Keller was interviewed by Martin Bashir at Columbia University after the publication of his book The Reason for God. As part of the evening Keller also takes questions from the audience.
For his interesting answer to a question on homosexuality listen in at around the 50 minute mark.
For a great answer to ‘do atheists have faith?’ go to 48 minutes.
Justin Taylor has helpfully produced a breakdown of all of the questions, produced below.
