Book 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.”

 — David Aikman, author of Great Souls

5.0 out of 5 stars A profoundly thought-provoking book 26 Mar. 2004
Format:Hardcover
In this fascinating book, author and Christian apologist Ravi Zacharias argues for the uniqueness of Christianity, in a West where religious differences are downplayed. Throughout these seven chapters, Mr. Zacharias contrasts the Christian faith with other religions, and even defends it against the claims of atheistic critics. Along the way, the author treats the reader to the story of his own embracing of Christianity, plus many stories of his interaction with people of other faiths throughout the world.
Overall I found this to be a profoundly thought-provoking book. The author's defense of Christianity is plainly aimed at the Christian reader, but it is so deep and challenging that it forced me to address many questions that I had never thought to ask before. I think that this is a great book, one that I highly recommend to all Christians, and those who wish to understand what makes Christianity unique among world religions.

I cannot say enough good things about this book! Zacharias is a brilliant author who refuses to accept "hand me down" answeres for the tough questions of Christianity.This investigative study of Jesus is perfect for our society, rafe with relativity and ignorance. BUY THIS BOOK! <><

4.0 out of 5 stars The basics of Christianity 23 Sept. 2007
By Peter Uys HALL OF FAME TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
This book is written in a very matter-of-fact style, it's not one of Zacharias' intellectual masterpieces like The Real Face Of Atheism or Deliver Us From Evil, his classic on postmodernism.

In the first chapter Meeting My Master he recounts how he came to the knowledge of Christ as a youngster in India. Here he also discusses the various major faiths like Buddhism, Hinduism and Islam, arguing that religions are not all the same.

Where Do You Live?, the second chapter, deals with the ministry of Christ, the first disciples, the God of the Bible and prophecies fulfilled by Jesus. It includes a section on the three aforementioned religions, their history and their core teachings on ideas like salvation and the soul.

Chapter 3: How Do We Know The Claims Of Jesus Are True?, investigates the matter of faith, distinguishing between blind faith and thinking faith. The author discusses the thoughts of Bertrand Russell, Thomas Nagel, Matthew Parris and David Hume. Here he also addresses the hypocrites in church, the limitations of science and the proof of the resurrection. Zacharias praises intellectual investigation and urges all Christians to think about their faith in the light of reason.

The following chapter: Won't Jesus Make Life Wonderful?, explores the motives and expectations of individuals. He refers to those in Christ's day who wanted something from him when they saw the miracles but didn't really want Him. On the subjects of miracles, mention is made of the miracles all around us that we never notice. He explains what we can expect from the Judeo-Christian God, comparing that with Buddhism, Hinduism and Islam.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps the best person to write such a book 30 Sept. 2011
By Yves
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Ravi Zacherias is far from your typical preacher. He wasn't brought up in the Bible-belt USA in a Southern Baptist assembly. He grew up in India, a culture of extremes in religion: Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam... regardless of these influences he chose Christ.
Ravi's credibility in a book like "Jesus among other gods" is well noted then, since he's had full exposure to other views. On top of his Eastern origins, his intelligence also gives him the acceptance to be invited to preach in Muslim countries as well as major secular universities and institutions.

5.0 out of 5 stars In Christ alone 9 Feb. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A book to challenge both believers and the sceptics. How Christ stands unique in History and how he alone is the answer for mankind. The book is written with great honesty and personal testimony. To read this book with an open heart and mind makes one have to make a decision, as Jesus said "Who do you say I am?" The answer you give to Him, will determine your eternal. destiny
