This book was very readable and interesting. As a culture, we have way too much information swirling around us, which leads us to accept without question what is being promoted. This book causes us to stop, look and really see how we are being lead down popular roads and away from God's Truth.
The book is titled: Why Jesus? It would have been entitled: Why it's not Oprah Winfrey and Deepak Chopra. In fact, three quarters of this book is devoted to denouncing the mass marketed new spirituality. Only few chapters are devoted to answering the question: Why Jesus? I wish that the proportions would be reversed. It is correct to denounce the rhetoric of the new gurus, but this should not occupy the entire speech.
With wisdom and fearless exploration, my favorite author Ravi in his unique style meticulously summarizes what really is happening to Western Culture and the Christian beliefs upon which America was founded. No better apologist has surfaced. (With the exception of the speakers and evangelists on his team and in training.) He is contemporary yet theologically, philosophically & historically well-seated. Bravely he confronts the erroneous and dangerous spirituality theories of highly visible and influential Oprah and Chopra. He utilizes such relevance and specificity, declaring the ultimate truth of creation, and man's diverse and complicated reaction to the unmet needs of life. Dr. Zacharias preserves the integrity of the Bible and inspires seeking God the Father's truth about who He is, and Why He created us in His image, and why the sacrificial work of Jesus Christ was and is necessary. God sits upon His throne, and in my heart, and I am not my own god. May this piece reach millions with truth about the danger and fallacy of new age spirituality. Ravi sets matters in order for every skeptic, agnostic, atheist and misled soul on the planet as he brilliantly proclaims the truth of Jesus Christ and confronts the ignorance of new age thinking! Pray for the 'enemies' of the faith that they may emerge from the dark new age and become brothers and sisters in Christ too. Thank you Dr. Zacharias, may God protect you.
