A Defense of Christ in an Age of Tolerance
By Erwin W. Lutzer
Ever heard someone say, All religions worship or have the same God? Well this book by Edwin Lutzer will give proof that all religions are not the same. He gives proof in the twelve chapters of this book that all religions are different, pointing out many details from each religion. He provides proof that the truth is in Christ. He was invited and attended a convention of the Parliament of the Worlds Religions, a group that is trying to make a one world religion possible, and some of the things discussed at that convention. He shares how some think we are to be tolerant of all religions and their beliefs.
Erwin has described the extraordinary birth, life, authority, death, resurrection, ascension and return of Christ. The facts that he offers are well explained and are Biblical based. The facts tell the true story of Jesus, the way to salvation and how the other religions do not even come close to the truth.
I would recommend this book for discussion groups, Bible studies and as a way of increasing your knowledge of what is going on in the world and why we need to be aware of the changes that some are trying to force on us.

It is especially helpful to those of us from a former era who find current American cultural attitudes 'a different country' from what we knew. Readers will gain insight into mainstream arguments against Christianity frequently encountered and wisdom in how to respond from sound Biblical footing.

Not many books exist in the defense of Jesus Christ as our only Savior.
Pastor Lutzer has written this book with easy to understand vocabulary. There's so many new terms/phrases that have developed with time which are prominent in this age of tolerance such as; pluralism, inclusivism, exclusivism, selectivism, social tolerance, legal tolerance, uncritical tolerance, among others that I had heard before but didn't exactly know their meanings. I found the first 3 chapters very informative and helpful in understanding apologetics vernacular (which I, most often than not, feel lost with). Each chapter focuses on an account for the defense of Jesus as the only Savior with Biblical evidence, comparison of other deities/ religions, logic, and philosophy. Pastor Lutzer also includes anecdotes and personal experiences which make the reading more engaging. The arguments made are clear and logical in response to any skeptic of the faith. I primarily picked this book because I wanted to expand my apologetics skills and was not wholly disappointed. I have had many conversations with skeptics and always struggled with defending my faith for lack of "logical" reasoning (1 Peter 3:15) but have found the definitions and arguments very helpful. I agree with and marked down this quote, "You are entitled to your own private opinion, but you are not entitled to your own private truth!" Needless to say, I underlined, marked and highlighted this book like crazy. Reading this book and studying the Scriptures together, has helped me made sense of some of the arguments that plague skeptics and how to answer them without straying from Biblical truth. I love that the Bible, can in fact, be used against those who don't believe in it and debunks the all too worn out argument I hear a lot, "You cannot use the Bible to defend itself against those who don't believe in it." All in all, this book sets down to do what it said it would do: "describe the uniqueness of Christ, defend the claims of Christianity, and debunk the myths that many tout." I would recommend this book to those who have doubts about Christ but are willing to investigate and for Christians looking to learn how to defend their faith.
I received a free copy from Moody Publishers in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are entirely my own.
tudorgirlChicagoGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Dr. Lutzer is a man of wisdom.November 30, 2011tudorgirlChicagoGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book helped me so much to be able give an
answer for the hope that lies within me. I was challenged to
show the existence of God without using the Bible. From
the time we are born our hearts are an idol factory. None of us are born belonging to God. So, God must intervene and draw.
The God of ALL creation is the true God. This book will help
you to understand that Jesus Christ is the Creator. True
Christians have been bought with a price and that price was
the perfect, spotless, holy Blood of God Almighty! THIS is
God's plan and there is no plan B !!!
Philip S, Roeda5 Stars Out Of 5January 29, 2004Philip S, RoedaErwin Lutzers book titled Christ Among Many gods is similar to Ravi Zacharias book titled Jesus Among Other Gods. Both are attacks on religious relativeness. Mypreference is Lutzers work. Ravi Zacharias starts his book talking his lifes journey before accepting Jesus as His own Savior. His approach is less analytical and more anecdotal. Lutzer does use his own fairly recent encounters with those who believe in religious relativeness and his response to those who hold this contrary view. Lutzers work is more cholarly.
How does one want to perceive Jesus: mere man or God? To believe scripture or to cast Him differently? Does one want to incorporate Jesus into other belief systems? Those who preach relativeness seek to portray Jesus as mere man or to portray him as one of many gods. Scripture depicts a different Jesus. Jesus is the Christ because He is God who became man while staying God. Not a god but the only God; Lutzer argues that Jesus Christ cannot be ncorporated into another belief system.
Who is the liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, he who denies the Father and the Son. (1 John 2:22 RSV)
