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.”

From a 5-star review: Ravi Zacharias is probably the most concise and succinct Christian apologist of our day, and this book is classic Zacharias!

He gives us a clear defense of the Christian message as he tackles some difficult areas of Christian apologetics, such as the problem of suffering in the face of a loving God. His viewpoint is one of a man who is well versed in the ever popular eastern philosophy of his childhood.

A wonderful, wonderful book! Highly recommended!!!
