Product Description

Because the New Age movement and other influences have redefined traditional Christianity, many people question whether Jesus is the only way to God. Discussing the beliefs of Shirley MacLaine, Deepak Chopra, and others, Zacharias explores whether truth is relative, perfection possible, and more---and shows why Jesus' resurrection is the most important argument for Christianity's exclusive claims. 256 pages, softcover from Faithwords.

Publisher's Description

We are facing one of the greatest crises in the history of religion. Truth is being cast aside in the name of tolerance and cultural relativism, all under the guise of a New Spirituality. Having become accustomed to abundance and the bliss of multiple choices, we now have a spiritual supermarket before us from which we may select whatever form of spirituality we desire. But tragically we often choose without knowing how to make a distinction between truth and falsehood.

In this brilliant and compelling critique of the dangers of the New Spirituality, Christian apologist Ravi Zacharias applies some vigorous therapy to counter this assault on rational thought and shows why the uniqueness of Jesus matters.

    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".

    excellently written by one of today's deepest thinkers. Will recommend to anyone who wishes insight into the world's
    false teachers who came after Jesus , to steal His word.

    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.
