R. Z. certainly does not need my recommendation as he has been endorsed by giants such as Billy Graham, Charles Swindoll, and Josh McDowell. Reading this has been an exciting - even exquisite - experience for me. (Reader beware, - have your regular dictionary and your philosophy dictionary on hand.) I shall not put it away w the other books that I have read - but shall keep it near for reference. I love, love, love this book!
I carefully read the book cover to cover twice. The author brilliantly reveals the intellectual superiority of the Christian faith and renders all other belief systems inadequate and hopeless. It is the most compelling work I've ever read about the fundamental differences among the major philosophies in the world. This book will encourage Christians and trouble non-Christians.
I wish I had read this book many years ago. Mr. Zacharias knowledge of the subject and research is quite evident and assuring for there is no other way known to man, but God.Does the book require deep concentration? Yes and at times some plodding, but, it is worth the journey.
This book is conclusive set of talks delivered at Harvard University by Ravi Zacharias. Some of the ideas presented at Harvard were extrapolated and expanded upon in this book.The book itself is a tremendously helpful resource for any student or scholar looking for a defense on the Christian faith in contrast to other systems of thought. The breath of the range of philosophers range from Fredrick Nietzsche to C.S. Lewis as the polarizing extremes are dissected in vivid detail.The first half of the book deals with the secular worldview as well as its logical implications. The later half of the book deals with the Christian worldview. Here is the part of the book that shines through as Ravi eloquently provides the contradistinction of ideas in Christianity and secularism. This is the area where Ravi gives the reader the answers to origin, destiny, purpose, and morality found within the Christian faith.
