Publisher's Summary

"Apart from God, chaos is the norm; with God, the hungers of the mind and heart find their fulfillment." So says Ravi Zacharias in this brilliant and compelling apologetic defense of the Christian faith - the likes of which haven't been seen since C.S. Lewis. With forceful logic, insightful illustrations, and passionate conviction, he shows how affirming the reality of God's existence matters urgently in everyday life.

According to Zacharias, who has debated the issue of God's existence in such settings as Harvard and Princeton universities, how you answer the question of God's existence will have a profound effect on the way you live your life. It can impact your relationship with others, your commitment to integrity, your attitude toward morality, your perception of truth, and your sense of meaning in life - it can mean the difference between living a life filled with hope or one of despair.

Critic Reviews

"Ravi Zacharias examines the bankruptcy of life without God and gives a powerful defense of how Jesus Christ brings meaning and hope to an individual life." (Billy Graham)

Loved it.

I'm used to listening to preaching/lectures so I found it most enjoyable. It takes a few listens to digest all of the concepts.

Fantastic and enlightening apologetic

Would you consider the audio edition of Can Man Live without God to be better than the print version?

Yes. It is is wonderful to hear the author narrating his own book. It makes it that more real.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Can Man Live without God?

The clue to the meaning in life is relationships and the pursuit of wonder gives life meaning.

What about Ravi Zacharias’s performance did you like?

Ravi's sincerity and knowledge of the scriptures and other philosophical perspectives along with his ability to make an point so logical and clear makes the listener want to hear more from such a brilliant scholar.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This audio is intellectually stimulating and definately draws a response from the listener.

Any additional comments?

Highly recommended

Good to listen to and thought provoking

Great book. Ravi is wonderful to listen to. It has some audio issues, but you can easily get past that based off of the content.

Good Book

Really good book only wish the audio was clearer. Given that it is the original recordings it is a little fuzzy, however content is solid.

Horrible Audio

I persevered with this because I like Ravi Zacharias... but I could barely hear him at times because the audio was awful. I could have done better with a cassette recorder in a moving car.

Timely

Spiritually compelling. I am a disciple of Christ, so this book really bolstered my faith and how I share it. Unfortunately, the audio quality was very sub par.

Compelling

I enjoy Dr. Zacharias's intellectual and philosophical approach to man's need for Jesus Christ. Dr. Zacharias is a wonderful teacher.
