Publisher's Summary

In 2006, Ravi Zacharias International Ministries (RZIM) held an open forum at the Fox Theater in Atlanta to address the subject: "Has Christianity Failed You?" Tickets were sold for the event and---to the complete surprise of everyone---the event was sold out, with a capacity crowd of over 5,000. People lined up, offering to buy tickets from folks in line for higher prices.

Before the event, an RZIM cameraman walked the streets and asked people if they had rejected the faith they held at one time. One answered that, because of a Christian's rejection of his gay lifestyle, he had done just that. Another answered that she had left her faith because she had fallen into adultery and could never live it down in the church. Others had their own reasons. Some said it was just intellectually untenable in an age of reason. They chose to come to the event to judge if there were adequate answers.

It is estimated that for every one person who writes a letter or attends an event, there are one thousand who agree. If the Atlanta crowd was any indication, the question is real and troubling. Why is it that many live with silent doubt, many leaving the "evangelical fold" for something else? Is there something wrong with the message, the communicator, the hearer...or is it all three? It's time to ask the hard questions of what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ and why it seems as though God has made it so hard to continue believing. In fact, the son of a prominent U.S. Senator phoned me with that very question: "Why has God made it so hard to believe in Him?" Such skepticism is not just representative of the hostile; it also represents many honest questioners. This book attempts to lay out the response to those within as well as those outside the Christian faith so as to understand what it is we believe and why it is so hard to do so.

    "I am a new big fan of Ravi Zacharias!"

    Heard him on the radio while channel surfing. Then had to look him up. This was my first introduction to apologetic s and I feel that it really helped me understand my christian faith even though I have been a Christian for a long time. Shared the information with my 30 year old daughter and her husband and they were amazed on the way he presented the information about defending the Christian faith. If you have an i-tunes account there is a lot of free lectures by him and other apologetics Christian leaders.

    "fascinating insight!"

    Zacharias is one of those rare speakers whose knowledge of his subject is so great that his speeches read like a book!

    Wherever you are in your spiritual journey you can benefit from this book for it gives rational, intelligent, reasons for the Christian faith, not to judge folk, not to shame folk, but to answer the honest questions you might have on this faith.

    If you are just angry, intelligent reasoning will not assuage you. If you hate the idea of Faith period, this book will not open your heart toward it. If, like me, you just want great reasoning for the faith of our fathers, you will love this book.

    "Powerful!"

    The author has, in his usual intelligent response to our pitiful excuses for how Christianity has failed or is not worth following, quieted our challenges with the intelligence of the truth. A must read for leaders and laypersons alike. Loved it.

    "Profound Biblical Truth"

    It was well written in such a way that it was easy to comprehend and analyze. It was supported very well with truths and illustrations that supported each claim and fact.

    "Incredible and indeniable"

    This book is undoubtedly true, and it is not only a study of history, culture, and truth, but a profound look into philosophy and God.

    Any additional comments?

    Ravi deals with the important issues and points that send so many sight as the reason they've left the faith. He does so in a clear yet powerful way, bringing reason and logic back into the equation. Great read.

    "Another worthy teaching"

    I love to listen to Ravi's teachings. Listen for the prayer in Chapter 7. Encouraging

    "A Wonderful Challenge for Believers..."
    Any additional comments?

    I enjoy Ravi Zacharias immensely. For those interested in apologetics or simply looking for a more conrcrete and systematic understanding of their faith, I would recommend him a million times over. I've learned more about why I believe what I believe from him than any other person other than C.S. Lewis. With that being said, I generally prefer to read these kind of books rather than listen to them. This book has plenty of quotables that I would have underlined or highlighted. With that being said, I most certainly endorse his works. He is such an asset to believers who are intellectual, inquisitive, or looking for answers to the hard questions we all inevitably face.

    "Informative but not graceFULL"

    Not what I expected from the title. I enjoyed listening to Dr. Z but really hoped for a more spiritual content. Definitely worth a listen. Comparative theology, historical evidence, and logical orderly of information are all here to learn from.
