cbcarter5 Stars Out Of 5centrality of christDecember 2, 2014cbcarterQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is Ravi at his best. In this book he keeps it simple (at least for those who have done a lot of apologetic studies), but still informative. As to what one reviewer here meant by bashing others, apparently she does not understand what "bashing" really is. To criticize or note differences or deficiencies is not bashing. Ravi has always tempered his apologetics with compassion and patience. You'll get a good idea of where Christianity differs from other worldviews of world religions and philosophies. His own background only serves to validate his arguments. Excellent book. A must. Good gift to a friend who may be searching. And it is quite logical!
Mr RonYelm, WAAge: Over 65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5well done study on the uniqueness of ChristDecember 2, 2013Mr RonYelm, WAAge: Over 65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5In 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.
PilgrimKetchikan, AlaskaAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5So much more than I expected.November 11, 2013PilgrimKetchikan, AlaskaAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I 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.
discipleinprogressMarylandAge: 45-54Gender: female2 Stars Out Of 5DisappointingJuly 24, 2013discipleinprogressMarylandAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 2Value: 3Meets Expectations: 1Although 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".
