Description

In a world with so many religions, why Jesus?

We are living in a time when you can believe anything, as long as you do not claim it to be true. In the name of “tolerance,” our postmodern culture embraces everything from Eastern mysticism to New Age spirituality. But as Ravi Zacharias points out, such unquestioning acceptance of all things spiritual is absurd. All religions, plainly and simply, cannot be true.

Jesus Among Other Gods provides the answers to the most fundamental claims about Christianity, such as:
Aren’t all religions fundamentally the same?Was Jesus who He claimed to be?Can one study the life of Christ and demonstrate conclusively that He was and is the way, the truth, and the life?
In each chapter, Zacharias considers a unique claim that Jesus made and then contrasts the truth of Jesus with the founders of Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism with compelling insight and passionate conviction. In addition to an impressive breadth of reading and study, he shares his personal journey from despair and meaninglessness to his discovery that Jesus is who He said He is.

In Jesus Among Other Gods, Ravi Zacharias demonstrates that he is one of the most intellectually gifted as well as spiritually sensitive writers of today’s leading apologists for the Christian faith. Zacharias brings alive the unique power of the claims of Jesus about himself and the utter relevance of his message today for the human condition.”

    I have traveled the world for my work and have come face to face to many religions and the cultures they form. I have even read their philosophies in my spare time before I had a walk… This book helped me see how each religion works, but also how to discuss it with them in a humble way. And may I add BE humble when speaking on this topic with those other religions! But to me this book sharpened my plow blade to work more mission fields so as to feed others the Truth about Jesus! Thank you Ravi for the book and may your tree always baer fruit for The Lord!

    I enjoyed this book. Ravi Zacharias has a very good writing style and I often have to read his books with an open dictionary. Only problem I have with the book is that I was hoping for more comparison. The book's title led me to believe this would heavily compare Christianity and Jesus to all the other religions and gods. And while it does do that in some parts, mainly this book is focused on who Jesus is and why he's so great without a hint of comparison. Definitely a good read with some very interesting ideas, but if you're looking for a complete comparison of Christianity against other religions, you may be disappointed.
