Product Description

The Christian faith has come under considerable fire lately. Whatever their deficiencies, the so-called "New Atheists" of our day have a firm hold of the popular imagination. Compelled by the popular reception of these Christian detractors, Ravi Zacharias penned The End of Reason. Simultaneously approachable and powerful, The End of Reason is a firm challenge to those who wish to rob the gospel of its credibility, as well as a telling exposé of the "moral bankruptcy" latent within atheism. Far from being a dry academic treatise, The End of Reason is an informative book that you can readily share with your friends and family. It is a book that is written to empower Christians in their daily lives as they encounter daily struggles and challenges. If you are hungry for answers, this book is for you.

Publisher's Description

When you pray, are you talking to a God who exists? Or is God nothing more than your “imaginary friend,” like a playmate contrived by a lonely and imaginative child? When author Sam Harris attacked Christianity in Letter to a Christian Nation, reviewers called the book “marvelous” and a generation of readers—hundreds of thousands of them—were drawn to his message. Deeply troubled, Dr. Ravi Zacharias knew that he had to respond. In The End of Reason, Zacharias underscores the dependability of the Bible along with his belief in the power and goodness of God. He confidently refutes Harris’s claims that God is nothing more than a figment of one’s imagination and that Christians regularly practice intolerance and hatred around the globe. If you found Sam Harris’s Letter to a Christian Nation compelling, the book you are holding is exactly what you need. Dr. Zacharias exposes “the utter bankruptcy of this worldview.” And if you haven’t read Harris’ book, Ravi’s response remains a powerful, passionate, irrefutably sound set of arguments for Christian thought. The clarity and hope in these pages reach out to readers who know and follow God as well as to those who reject God.

Author Bio

Ravi Zacharias is President and Founder of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries (RZIM).  Their global outreach grew from humble roots in 1984 and includes fielding a team of itinerant speakers who operate from offices located around the world including the U.S., the UK, Romania, the Middle East, India, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Canada.  The Hallmark of Ravi’s heart is his strong evangelistic and apologetic that manifests itself from a position of compassion.

Here's an author who knows firsthand the emptiness of atheism. Born into a high-caste Hindu family, living in early adulthood as a practical atheist and finding the desperate depths of such belief, Ravi Zacharias was intercepted by Christ. Now, four decades later, a Christian scholar, teacher, speaker, ministry leader, and one of the foremost Christian apologists of today, Zacharias has the background and knowledge to carry out this books stated purpose: To tell…all who ask the hard questions about the meaning of life - that atheism is bankrupt for answers. (pg. 15) With honesty, forthrightness, and clear, understandable explanations, The End of Reason critiques Sam Harris's atheistic books. The End of Faith and Letter To a Christian Nation, which, Zacharias points out , bristle with disrespect, illogicality, and distortion. Point by point, building a well knit case, believable, and uncompromising, Zacharias provides arguments Christians can understand and use, and non-Christians can ponder and believe.

Although written to refute two particular books, The End of Reason makes immense sense whether you’ve read those books or not. The world seeks to bury Christian beliefs beneath a pile of condescending, noxious trash. This book helps us find the way out and stand proudly as we witness for our Lord. Zacharias shows exactly how illogical this non-moral, non-reasoning atheistic worldview is, how it uses extremely selective facts, and exactly how we can keep from falling for it, remaining proud and steadfast in our Christian worldview.

    Ravi Zacharias is perhaps the most articulate Christian apologist of our time. In "The End of Reason" he presents an open letter to the American people in response to Sam Harris' poison-penned book, "Letter to a Christian Nation." Whereas Harris' sole intent was to destroy in proposing a world without God, Zacharias' desire is to rebuild and restore the validity and vitality of the Christian faith. This he does in biblical, philosophical, and scientific terms that rise above speculation and mere opinion. Although his arguments are heavy at times, he does not take us so deep into intellectual thought that the laymen is unable to understand what he has to say. The author's own rise to faith (Hinduism to Atheism to Christianity) well qualifies him to address the quest for the meaning to life. His own failed suicide attempt was used by the Lord to bring him to Christ. Therefore, he makes an impassioned plea for his readers to consider the hope to be found in his Savior as well. Zacharias argues that Harris and his fellow-atheists, in spite of their hollow shouting, will not win the day. Using Europe as a contemporary example, godless secularism even now is proving to be no match for another foe to biblical Christianity, the rise of radical Islam. Sounding eerily prophetic (this book was released in 2008), Zacharias writes, "In the end, America's choice will be between Islam and Jesus Christ. History will prove before long the truth of this contention." It is essential to remember that man has been created in the image of God and is, therefore, a moral being. The boisterous cries of modern atheism come from toothless lions. The more imminent threat to the Christian faith is already arising from a counterfeit religious system with a god who is the antithesis of the God of the Bible.

    Today's pseudo-intellectuals have a firm hold on many of our young people. Zacharias' intellectual and philosophical approach to their questions is invaluable in reaching out to them.
