Présentation de l'éditeur
Following the extraordinary success of the New York Times bestseller Bonhoeffer, Eric Metaxas's latest book offers inspirational and intellectually rigorous thought about the great questions surrounding us all today.
The Greek philosopher Socrates famously said that "the unexamined life is not worth living." Taking this as a starting point, Eric Metaxas founded a speaking series that encouraged busy and successful professionals to attend forums and think actively about the bigger questions in life. Thus Socrates in the City: Conversations on "Life, God, and Other Small Topics" was born.
This book is for the seeker in all of us, the collector of wisdom, and the person who asks "What if?" Within this collection of original essays that were first given to standing-room-only crowds in New York City are serious thinkers taking on Life, God, Evil, Redemption, and other small topics. Luminaries such as Dr. Francis Collins, Sir John Polkinghorne, Charles Colson, N.T. Wright, Os Guinness, Peter Kreeft, and Jean Bethke Elshatin have written about extraordinary topics vital to both secular and Christian thinking, such as "Making Sense Out of Suffering," "How Good Confronts Evil," and "Belief in God in an Age of Science." No question is too big-in fact, the bigger, the harder, the more complex, the better. These essays are both thought-provoking and entertaining, because nowhere is it written that finding answers to life's biggest questions shouldn't be exciting and even, perhaps, fun.

Each essay includes a transcription of Eric Metaxas' lighthearted introduction, the talk at the Socrates in the City forum, and a transcription of the Q&A session after each talk, all of which took place at Socrates in the City forums between 2003 and 2010. My only regret was that the actual Q&As weren't longer. Among the delights in the book were the speakers' reactions to Eric Metaxas' unorthodox introductions.
It would be unreasonable to expect that questions like belief in God in an age of science, making sense out of suffering, seeking purpose, meaning and truth in your life, why Christianity makes sense, the twilight of atheism, the case for civility, the language of God, etc. can be solved in 25 to 40 pages each, but John Polkinghorne, Peter Kreeft, Charles Colson, N. T. Wright, Alister McGrath, Os Guiness, Francis Collins, etc. take good shots at them, and the Q&A sessions are mostly helpful.
I highly recommend this very readable and enjoyable book to anyone interested in the topics covered.
This book is a series of lectures given in New York to a sophicated audience. The author had the worlds best, smartests Christians give lectures, followed by a Q&A period.
All the lectures deal with the big topics of life God, morality, how do we Know , Church state separation etc.
Each section gives the speakers main arguements.
