In a world with so many religions, why Jesus?

We are living in a time when you can believe anything, as long as you do notclaim it to be true. In the name of "tolerance," our postmodern cultureembraces everything from Eastern mysticism to New Age spirituality. But as RaviZacharias points out, such unquestioning acceptance of all things spiritual isabsurd. All religions, plainly and simply, cannot be true.

Jesus Among Other Gods provides the answers to the most fundamental claims aboutChristianity, such as:

  • Aren't all religions fundamentally the same?
  • Was Jesus who He claimed to be?
  • Can one study the life of Christ and demonstrate conclusively that He wasand is the way, the truth, and the life?

In each chapter, Zacharias considers a unique claim that Jesus made and then contraststhe truth of Jesus with the founders of Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism withcompelling insight and passionate conviction. In addition to an impressive breadthof reading and study, he shares his personal journey from despair and meaninglessnessto his discovery that Jesus is who He said He is.

"In Jesus Among Other Gods, Ravi Zacharias demonstrates that he is one of the most intellectually giftedas well as spiritually sensitive writers of today's leading apologists for the Christian faith. Zachariasbrings alive the unique power of the claims of Jesus about himself and the utter relevance of his messagetoday for the human condition."

Jesus Among Other Gods:

Deliver Us From Evil:
With clarity and insight, Zacharias shows how many of today's most popular ideas, thoughts, and beliefs are vandalizing our culture. He shows how it is there, "in the depths of our innermost being, That the work of God changes what we want to do. This is not an ethical system calling us to civility. This is the transforming work of the grace of God, who calls us His children."

He shows how:

  • Secularization has led us to a loss of shame, generating evil even against those we love
  • Pluralization has led us to a loss of reason, generating evil toward those we choose to hate
  • Privatization has led us to loss of meaning, generating evil against ourselves

Compelling, intellectual, and thought provoking. This book addresses and answers questions that many others conveniently overlook or ignore.
I would recommend it for anyone. Even those not like minded with the author will benefit from examining their thoughts and being challenged.
