Product Description

We see it everywhere. From musicians and movie stars, to neighbors and friends at work, people are interested in having a spiritual life, but treat faith more like an à la carte menu at a restaurant, choosing what they like and dismissing the rest. Epitomized by popular figures like Oprah Winfrey and Deepak Chopra, Western culture has embraced a spirituality devoid of the Biblical Christ.

In Why Jesus? Rediscovering His Truth in an Age of Mass Market Spirituality, Ravi Zacharias explores how this "New Spirituality" emerged. Looking at popular culture and contemporary writers and philosophers in this dialogue, Ravi evaluates their claims through the lens of four key elements--Truth, Relevance, Faith, and Reason, to show how relativism cannot answer the spiritual hunger in our hearts.

Rediscover the uniqueness of Jesus Christ and how His resurrection is the most important argument for the exclusive claims of Christianity.

    In reply to those who say Ravi is criticizing other religions I just want to say that I have been reading and listening to Ravi since 1994 and I must say that Ravi goes out of his way to avoid coming across as criticizing. Some people cannot separate telling the truth from criticizing. Ravi shows where all the religions in the world fail in their answers to the great subject of salvation from sin. This is not criticism. When the proponents of those religions are given the floor they have no answers. no truth.

    I was almost 2/3 of the way through the book before very much was said about Jesus. This book has given me a clearer understanding of the New Spirituality, Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam and the uniqueness of Jesus and what he offers in contrast. I am impressed with Mr. Zacharias' authority on these things as his knowledge comes from careful study of a wide range of religions and his personal experiences as a youth in India and now his wide engagement with other cultures and diverse groups of people. I must admit that I needed to have a dictionary close by to more fully grasp what he was talking about! I highly recommend the book to others.

    Although I agree with several of the author's key points, I find his style of writing to be hard to follow and illogical. More importantly, he criticizes other religions for sins that the Christian church has also committed and thus comes across as hypocritical. There are several points where he hints at what we Christians (and not just Oprah) have done to turn people away from Christ rather than draw them in - but instead of developing these thoughts, he goes back to bashing others. Every once in a while I get a glimpse of humility in his writing, but I am afraid his fame has "gone to his head".

    This book contains an abundance of information, but most of it is about Eastern philosophies and religions. All "must know" information, but I was hoping to gain more insight and information about Christ and Christianity today.
