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.”

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 2/5/2014

    " An incredible defense of Christianity! I'd rank it up there with the writings of C.S. Lewis, although in his section on pain in a universe created by a good God, I wish he'd included the logic of Lewis' "Problem of Pain." The two arguments together make it easier to understand this crazy fallen world. But Zacharias keeps his book relatively short and simple, which means the problem of pain isn't the only argument that doesn't get as much elaboration as I'd like. I'm looking forward to exploring more of his writing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kyle | 2/3/2014

    " A good intro to the uniqueness of Christian theism among the world's religions. Recommended more for understanding Christian belief than alternate religions. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeremy | 1/30/2014

    " First RZ book I've read. I heard him speak at Clemson on March 8, 2012, so I wanted to have read one of his books by then. I think I expected more apologetics (which it did include), but there was also a lot of exposition of what Jesus said. However, the apologetics sections were brilliant. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren | 1/24/2014

    " This is a very good book. Ravi Zacharias is a brilliant man, and this comes through forcefully in the book. Each chapter deals with a seperate question about God/Jesus, and compares the Christian answer with that of other religions. I will give a warning that it is not for casual reading at all. Still, incredible. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Colter | 1/22/2014

    " Ravi is an incredible apologetic. He opens up the truths of the Christian message with incredible skill and class while subsequently bringing to light the fallacies of some of the most prominent skeptical arguments. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul Kelly | 1/16/2014

    " Ravi Zacharias does a great job of presenting Jesus to us. He shows how unique Jesus is by standing him next to other world religions. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jamestohal | 1/3/2014

    " I read this book a while ago, but I love the way he writes on an open level. No BS, just straight and with his agenda. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert | 1/2/2014

    " Wonderfully written book on Christ's uniqueness among world religions. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meadow | 12/26/2013

    " It's really good, but not what I got it for. I thought it was going to compare all the gods to Jesus, but it wasn't that. But it is still really good. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wilma Rebstock | 12/26/2013

    " This book is okay for what it is. Not my cup of tea. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Giju Abraham | 6/2/2013

    " Ravi proves why he is one of the best apologists of our time. His understanding of the faith and other fields is worth emulating. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adrian | 4/8/2013

    " A great book for those looking to learn how to defend their Christian faith against all other wordly religions. "

    " 5-Stars
    Ravi has such a way or conveying his ideas to you and this helps in a theology book. I agreed with his points, but more than that, he makes this book easy and even fun to read with his insight and poignant stories. I could read this over and over. "
