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 notÂ claim it to be true. In the name of âtolerance,â our postmodern cultureÂ embraces everything from Eastern mysticism to New Age spirituality. But as RaviÂ Zacharias points out, such unquestioning acceptance of all things spiritual isÂ absurd. All religions, plainly and simply, cannot be true.
Jesus Among Other Gods provides the answers to the most fundamental claims aboutÂ Christianity, such as:
- Arenât all religions fundamentally the same?
- Was Jesus who He claimed to be?
- Can one study the life of Christ and demonstrate conclusively that He wasÂ and is the way, the truth, and the life?
In each chapter, Zacharias considers a unique claim that Jesus made and then contrastsÂ the truth of Jesus with the founders of Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism withÂ compelling insight and passionate conviction. In addition to an impressive breadthÂ of reading and study, he shares his personal journey from despair and meaninglessnessÂ to his discovery that Jesus is who He said He is.
âIn Jesus Among Other Gods, Ravi Zacharias demonstrates that he is one of the most intellectually giftedÂ as well as spiritually sensitive writers of todayâs leading apologists for the Christian faith. ZachariasÂ brings alive the unique power of the claims of Jesus about himself and the utter relevance of his messageÂ today for the human condition.â
