Product Description

Apologist Zacharias always asks hard questions about what it means to be a follower of Jesus. Here he explains why so many people have given up on faith and examines whether it's the fault of the church, the message, the communicator, the hearer---or all of the above. Hope for skeptics and disappointed believers alike!

Publisher's Description

In 2006, Ravi Zacharias International Ministries (RZIM) held an open forum at the Fox Theater in Atlanta to address the subject: “Has Christianity Failed You?” Tickets were sold for the event and—to the complete surprise of everyone—the event was sold out with a capacity crowd of over 5,000. People lined up offering to buy tickets from folks in line for higher prices. Before the event, an RZIM cameraman walked the streets and asked people if they had rejected the faith they held at one time. One answered that, because of a Christian’s rejection of his gay lifestyle he had done just that. Another answered that she had left her faith because she had fallen into adultery and could never live it down in the church. Others had their own reasons. Some said it was just intellectually untenable in an age of reason. They chose to come to the event to judge if there were adequate answers. It is estimated that for every one person who writes a letter or attends an event, there are one thousand who agree. If the Atlanta crowd was any indication, the question is real and troubling. Why is it that many live with silent doubt, many leaving the “evangelical fold” for something else? Is there something wrong with the message, the communicator, the hearer…or is it all three? It’s time to ask the hard questions of what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ and why it seems as though God has made it so hard to continue believing. In fact, the son of a prominent U.S. Senator phoned me with that very question. “Why has God made it so hard to believe in Him?” Such skepticism is not just representative of the hostile; it also represents many honest questioners. This book attempts to lay out the response to those within as well as those outside the Christian faith so as to understand what it is we believe and why it is so hard to do so. More to the point: Why it is actually so hard to deny God and still make sense out of life? In the end the answers should be both felt and real, with the added truth that God is nearer than you think. He desires that we sense Him very near to us and not distant. But closeness comes at a cost just as any relationship of love and commitment does.

    This review was written for Has Christianity Failed You?.
    I found this book to be rather useless.

    I have been looking for help because to me, my Christian worldview seems to line up with reality and what I experience less and less. In the book, along with the usual Ravi Zacharias brand of logical analysis and philosophical truth, one of the main points addressed (and, I must say, very well dealt with especially in the later pages) is that it is not really God or Jesus that disappoints us, but His church. The author makes his argument clear, but since the aforementioned is not true for me, I could not gather anything from this book.

    If you want a high vantage point to defend your faith from intellecutally, this book might be for you, but if you are struggling with losing your faith and are looking for practical answers, I would say that you are also looking for another book.

    I had to buy a new computer and can't figure out how to get my ebooks transfered to my new computer. I thought buying another ebook with the Adobe Reader would solve the problem but it didn't work. However, in spite of this problem, I like the format and the ebook. I will buy again.

    I try to listen regularly to my local Christian radio station because they have excellent teaching programs as well as musical variety for every taste.

    God always seems to have someone talking or singing on the matter concerning me when I tune in - I've yet to figure out how He does that but I love that He does.

    When I ordered recently from one of the broadcasters, I was pleased to learn that my order would be shipped from Christianbook.com - I had many good experiences with you in the past and your service hasn't changed.

    In todays world,we need to know how to defend our faith & Ravi is so helpful in educating me to do that. He, Ken Ham & Alistair Begg are the finest apologists I know of & I can't get enough of their literature to educate me in the Lord's truth. God bless them & God Bless you.
