Excellent book. Not what I expected,but an insightful look at the claims of Jesus. Exactly who did he say he was? And then comparisons with other religions. Well written and thought provoking. Provided a fresh perspective on the gospels and Christ.
I haven't completely finished this book yet, but I do enjoy the keen insight to his words and wisdom. His testimony is impeccable, and his knowledge is inscrutable. Truly, a keeper for apologetics and knowledge for the Christian who needs help to defend an honest faith.
I wouldn't read this book if I were you. I wonder how old he was when he wrote this. He was terribly dishonest in this book. He claims that people who believe in the Biblical doctrine of a young earth also believe the earth is flat and that the young earth creationists never quote any verses to support there theory. Lie! This book is a great example of what happens when you let vain philosophy poison your mind. He does a poor job presenting his case for anything or refuting the other side. The description on the back of the book barley describes what's in the book. I was really disappointed.
A very good read with some good meat in it. Ravi is a very well studied person with the heartfelt and sincere Apologetic that is needed in defending the Christian faith. If you take this book to read as a start in Apologetics it may not be what you are looking for. However, it all boils down to what is true and what is not. This book I feel is centered more on Christian philosophy versus post-modern Apologetics that we need to reach those that cling to relativism . All in all a very good book that will get you thinking and give you some views on Islam and Hinduism and Buddhism. It should be in you collection for pre-evangelistic reference.
Dr.Ravi is not just philosophical he is a sound Apologist, and I find his book meaningful to my statement of faith. As a South African his book has helped me a lot in terms of Contextualising the Message of the Cross.
