Fernand Cheong5 Stars Out Of 5Amazing biographyApril 20, 2018Fernand CheongQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5An amazing biography of Ravi. Very different from other biographies which are often written of dead ministers. The content is raw, precise and intended to reveal the wonders of God's work. So often, I found myself just praying about God's sovereignty and mercy throughout the reading of this book. Even tears which were shed at the records of salvation whether for Ravi, Ravi's father, or Sunder's father. You come out of the book just thinking how good and merciful God is to us and how only through Him can we accomplish anything for His kingdom.
May we yearn for a working of God in our lives as He has worked in the lives of people like Ravi.

ChrisSingaporeAge: 25-34Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5A Good Book on the Life of Ravi ZachariasSeptember 4, 2013ChrisSingaporeAge: 25-34Gender: maleMeets Expectations: 4The book was a good read, not too long, with chapters was spread out well and it was an engaging read.
It first talks about the author's childhood and living standards in India. Also, how he grew up in a nominal Christian family, faithfully attending services but not pious.
It further explores his relationship with his dad (who he is quick not to blame), his mum and his grandmother, his education while he was young, his own struggle with his own loneliness which culminated in a suicide attempt. One surprising fact was that Ravi Zacharias was a rather good cricket player and still is excited about this sport.
One verse that was stuck with him whist on bed recovering from his suicide attempt was John 14:19b "Because I live, you also will live". Which nearing the end of the book gives a surprise about the significance of this verse in his own (family) life.
After conversion, Ravi was deeply influenced by YFC and also was exposed to preaching, which in the future would be his full-time vocation: A itinerant preacher and apologist.
Hereafter Ravi talks about his life as one training to be a hotel manager, and the family's transit to Canada and how he met Margie (his future wife) and also how he was slowly used by God in his preaching, within Canada and in other parts of the world.
What I personally felt the book was highlighting was how God was working behind the scenes in his life, God has indeed plan all things in his life to make him who he is today.
Second, I've seen how passionate Ravi is for the Indians, how he longs for all to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. Many times he shares about how he longs to be able to go back to India frequently and see more of them come to know and believe in Jesus Christ.
Roscoco5 Stars Out Of 5Well worth the read.July 8, 2013RoscocoQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4How important it is to share another's world view before you can really appreciate their writings.
This book shows a very different side to Raviji. It gives depth and character to his communication style. I want to read all his books over again.
