It invokes critical rationality or critical rationalism at "Intermission" as a method of stating arguments for God and belief in Part 2, "The Reasons for Faith".
In the book, Keller draws from diverse sources, including the Bible, C. S. Lewis, Francis Collins, Alvin Plantinga, Stephen Jay Gould, Rodney Stark,Anne Rice, Annie Dillard, Flannery O'Connor, Jonathan Edwards, Søren Kierkegaard, and N. T. Wright.
