The rise of secular gods presents the most serious challenge to the absolute claims of Christ since the founding of Christianity itself. The Christian worldview has not only been devalued and dismissed by modern culture, but its believers are openly ridiculed as irrelevant. In Jesus Among Secular Gods, Ravi Zacharias and Vince Vitale challenge the popular "isms" of the day, skillfully pointing out the fallacies in their claims and presenting compelling evidence for revealed absolute truth as found in Jesus.

Affirming the truth

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 04-04-17

I highly recommend this book to anyone, but especially if you are a "thinker". It thoroughly uncovers many of the reasons for and against God, relating the arguments to past and present contradicting and affirming arguments. it exposed me to new ways of viewing truth, and thus valuing it. It is a heavy read if you are unfamiliar with philosophical language, popular worldviews, and argumentative writing style; but we'll worth it.

Why do some products get more word of mouth than others? Why does some online content go viral? Word of mouth makes products, ideas, and behaviors catch on. It's more influential than advertising and far more effective. Can you create word of mouth for your product or idea? According to Berger, you can. Whether you operate a neighborhood restaurant, a corporation with hundreds of employees, or are running for a local office for the first time, the steps that can help your product or idea become viral are the same.
