Ravi urges the reader to look at the lives that have turned the hearts of people into movements for Christ. In the first three centuries of the church, the Apostles and followers like Polycarp and Tertullian and Origen demonstrated with their lives the truth of the resurrected Christ. A whole line of witnesses from every generation succeeded these who walked in the footsteps of Jesus, with names like Augustine, Catherine of Sienna, Bernard of Clairvaux, Luther, and Wesley leading the procession. But history begins on an individual level. Ravi shows readers his life, in its successes and failures, in its existence in the East and in the West, and in his attempts to bring the truth of Christ to those in any culture who don't know him. The Hebrew poet has said that a life rich in experiences is a life from which others can learn. This book is about Ravi's journey, from meaninglessness to the abundant joy of Christ, from East to West and back again, in the all-consuming passion of letting the world know about true freedom, and in whom that freedom is found.

The book is for people who are confused about their life and are looking for honest and unselfish answers. When you look at a boy doing really bad in life in a third world country,the last thing you would expect is to see that person to be a visiting scholar at Cambridge University!! The book revolves around how God called Ravi literally from the bed of suicide to the forefront of Christian evangelism and apologetics. A great read!!!
What an enjoyable book to listen to. I heard Ravi speak before and sometimes he can get pretty intellectual. But this is about his life, and how he came to believe in the God of the Bible. And who could be a better narrator than Ravi himself. It is a fascinating story.
when it comes to Ravi Zacharaias, one expects excellence. He delivers his own story in a moving and heart-on-his-sleeve way. It's easy to think people like him could never relate to heart-breaking issues of most people's lives, but he can. he has had a remarkable life with a surprisingly difficult beginning! I think adults and teenagers would enjoy listening to him tell his own story in his own words with his own voice.
I loved listening to Ravi's story In his own voice. Through his obedience God continues to do a mighty work through him
Really liked this book. As far as Ravi books go, this one is a lot easier to understand. I love his knowledge on so much stuff, but he is extremely intelligent and talks above my head sometimes. But this book doesnt get that way.
