Publisher's Description

Ultimate truth. The destiny of souls. The individual heart. Can Krishna and Jesus agree on anything?

This is what Subramaniam, a real-life Hindu of the twentieth century, wonders as he enters a fictitious conversation between two religious figures who have changed the lives of millions. As Jesus and Krishna respond to each other’s view of life and the afterlife, they speak words straight from the texts of Christianity and Hinduism and straight into the soul.

Subramaniam asks Jesus and Krishna hard questions about faith. Meanwhile, a fictional character, Richard, eavesdrops, asking himself the most important question of all:

Does it really matter what I believe?

From the Hardcover edition.

Author Bio

He also hosts a weekly international radio program called Let My People Think. Zacharias lives with his wife, Margaret, in Atlanta. They have three grown children.

From the Hardcover edition.

In New Birth or Rebirth?: Jesus Talks with Krishna, Ravi Zacharias wonders, "What if Jesus and Krishna talked?" This book, one of a four-part series, seeks to provide an answer. Using the Bhagavad Gita (Hinduism's sacred text) and the Bible as source material, Zacharias imagines a conversation between two of the most influential religious figures in history. As a story for the everyday reader, this book is not flawless. Much of the dialogue is stilted and awkward. Some of the ideas are hopelessly abstract—but all that is to be expected. This is not The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, after all. As an apologetic text, though, it is excellent. Ravi Zacharias, a Christian scholar born in India, offers a fair representation of both Hinduism and Christianity. It is very clear that Zacharias has done his research and done it well; this book will resonate with deep theological thinkers or anyone with a Hindu background. Despite its small stylistic flaws, New Birth or Rebirth? is an excellent book for anyone trying to open up a conversation with someone reared in a Hindu culture. As Jesus mandated in Matthew 10:16, we are to be "wise as serpents," and this book is an excellent way to develop that wisdom. – Chandler Birch,

    I loved this book because it was an eye-opener and it helped me to understand the tenets of Hinduism and one its most important gods-Krishna. I would recommend this book to those Christians who want to understand the mindset of others outside of our faith.
