The author believes that over the past forty years movements like New Age spirituality and society's obsession with human potential have combined like a "perfect storm" to redefine for popular culture what has been for centuries the classic biblical definition of the person, work, and teaching of Jesus Christ. Major new age and human potential tenets will be discussed like: the belief that we are all gods and have to discover our divinity; Jesus was only a good teacher; Christianity is but one among many ways to eternal life; reincarnation is real; Jesus was married; truth is relative; there is no sin; and perfection is possible.
"Serious Thinking with Penetrating Cultural Insight"
Jesus Among Other Gods is a brilliant defense of the uniqueness of the Christian message. In addition to giving you the benefit of an impressive breadth of reading and study, Ravi Zacharias shares his personal journey from despair and meaninglessness to his discovery that Jesus is who He said He is.
With inspiring stories and thought-provoking questions, Ravi Zacharias traces the multiple threads of our lives, describing how the unseen hand of God guides our joys, our tragedies, and our daily humdrum experiences to weave a pattern of divine providence and meaning.
Why would a loving and powerful God allow so much pain and suffering? In Why Suffering? Ravi Zacharias and Vince Vitale carefully walk you through a variety of responses that considered together provide a clear, comprehensive, and convincing answer.
"Best time spent / benefit ratio book of my life"
This book is for the Christian and skeptic alike. Is Christianity a mindless game hurling us into the storms of life, or are the instructions so detailed that we can know well enough what the storm will be like, who is in control, and what to do when on solid ground? In the end, is it Christianity that has failed, or is it the Church - as God's representative - that has failed?
"I am a new big fan of Ravi Zacharias!"
Meet the challenges of modern living and integrate the teachings of Christ with your everyday life! Being an effective Christian is tough in a world that is increasingly at odds with what you believe. But living at odds with the world is not what Jesus would do. He would meet the people around Him at their point of need and minister to them in a loving and sincere way. He calls you to live this way too. But how are you to do this? And how do you communicate the truth about Jesus in a way that everybody can understand? When Jesus walked the earth, He didn't always wait for people to come....
With forceful logic, insightful illustrations, and passionate conviction, Ravi Zacharias shows how affirming the reality of God's existence matters urgently in everyday life. According to Zacharias, how you answer the question of God's existence will have a profound effect on the way you live your life.
Ravi Zacharias was born in India and has literally moved from the East to the West and the West to the East and repeated the cycle again and again to answer skeptics' questions about whether God is alive, who Jesus is, what is truth, and whether we can really find absolutes. Ravi has spoken of his own journey only in bits and pieces in his other books and talks.
