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 expose 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. Unabridged audio CD; approximately 2 hours 36 minutes; 3 CDs; performed by Simon Vance.

Is your God real, or just an imaginary friend? How can a loving God exist when there is so much suffering? Have Christians waged senseless war on other faiths, on the environment, and on each other in the name of a nonexistent God? Theres a new atheism taking root in America, a movement more powerful and subversive than the atheism of Madalyn Murray OHare in the 1950s and 1960s. Led by writers such as Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, and Sam Harris, this newest challenge to Christianity or to any belief in God has a smooth and easy appeal to a new generation of Americans. When Harriss Letter to a Christian Nation was published, Dr. Ravi Zacharias knew that he must respond. For over thirty years, Dr. Zacharias has been an acclaimed apologist for Christian thought and belief. In this response, he gives a strong and rational answer to Harriss claims. Dr. Zachariass words are not only for those who have read the writings of the new atheists, but also for Christians who have felt their beliefs come under fire in the marketplace of ideas. 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 Harriss claims that God is nothing more than a figment of ones imagination and that Christians regularly practice intolerance and hatred around the globe. If you found Sam Harriss 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 havent experienced Harris book, Ravis response remains a powerful, passionate, irrefutably sound set of arguments for Christian thought. The clarity and hope in this audiobook will reach out to listeners who know and follow God as well as to those who reject God.
