How differently would we live if we believed that every dimension of our lives—from the happy to the tragic to the mundane—were part of a beautiful and purposeful design in which no thread were wrongly woven? That’s what best-selling author and internationally-known apologist, Ravi Zacharias, explores in The Grand Weaver. As Christians, we believe that great events such as a death or a birth are guided by the hand of God. Yet we drift into feeling that our daily lives are the product of our own efforts. This book brims with penetrating stories and insights that show us otherwise. From a chance encounter in a ticket line to a beloved father’s final word before dying, from a random phone call to a line in a Scripture reading, every detail of life is woven into its perfect place. In The Grand Weaver, Dr. Zacharias examines our backgrounds, our disappointments, our triumphs, and our beliefs, and explains how they are all part of the intentional and perfect work of the Grand Weaver.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joan | 2/20/2014

    " beautiful weaving of words into a life with Christ. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carrie | 2/17/2014

    " It's amazing how God has weaved prosperity and suffering together to make a tapestry that glorifies him. This man has a profound mind and this is probably just the first of many of his books I will read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pete Foley | 2/7/2014

    " Another excellent book by Dr. Zacharias. His understanding of Scripture is so strong that it compels me to study the Bible even more diligently. The book provides great personal stories, as well as a secure grounding in Scripture to illustrate his main point that God works all circumstances - our strengths, our shortcomings, our circumstances (etc.) - to achieve his ultimate purpose for our lives. Seemingly disconnected events, tragic circumstances, supposed "coincidences", are all seen through the lense of God's ultimate purpose for our lives. I highly recommend this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Glenn Williams | 2/6/2014

    " Enjoyed this one. Ravi is always intellectually stimulating and stretching. He does an incredible job revealing the hand of God in weaving Ravi into his wider purposes and then turns it around to challenge us to see where God might be involved in our lives so that he can weave us into His purposes also. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sally | 2/3/2014

    " Ravi Zacharias is an amazing author and speaker and I was not disappointed in this book. Through reading this book I once again was reminded that "The Grand Weaver" (God) continues to weave my lifes story and that nothing happens my chance. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Don Cooper | 2/2/2014

    " As a work in progress myslf, I found this book to be very insightful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margaret | 1/27/2014

    " This book expands on an analogy explored in the autobiography Walking from East to West. God is the grand weaver of our lives, just as the grand weavers of India make special cloth for wedding Sari's, so God weaves the fabric of our lives. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gretel | 1/17/2014

    " Not his best book, but it is still thought-provoking and affirming. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shawn Percival | 1/14/2014

    " Awesome book, tells biblical principles as to what we are created for "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/6/2013

    " Thia man is very wise and asks really good questions about how God, in his opinions, weaves himself into our lives. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Suz | 12/6/2013

    " This is a really great book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelley | 11/23/2013

    " This book was what we read in the women's Oasis group at Intown a couple of years ago. It came at a really good time in my life and I completely related to it and needed it at the time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Britni | 11/19/2013

    " I like that this book has very short sections so that I don't have to make a huge deal about sitting down to read it--I can read a little before I go to bed. It's encouraging, eye-opening, and gives you some good things to think about. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jmdobbs88 | 9/28/2013

    " I've just started reading this book, and so far it's a delight. Ravi goes beyond apologetics in this book. It's smart but also passionate. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindy | 8/27/2013

    " Incredibly thought provoking book in how God truly works in our lives, orchestrating the most minute detail. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alan | 11/12/2012

    " I liked this book. There are some very good observations in it. I did feel a little like I was not connecting to the author and seeing the "weaving" coming together in a pattern so overall not 5 stars for me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maria Connor | 11/10/2012

    " There are a few good "nuggets" in here, but not really my style of reading. He is a good storyteller, but it takes a long time to find the take-aways. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian Williams | 5/30/2012

    " Power testimony "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robert | 3/11/2012

    " After a great title and opening, this book kinda fizzled out for me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristine | 1/25/2012

    " I found myself wondering all through the reading of this book if the author was ever going to get to the main point. There were a couple interesting stories that stood out, but I really didn't remember anything the author was trying to say about God as being the "Grand Weaver". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daniel Alvers | 1/17/2012

    " This was a great book. Exceptional stories and inspirational. Ravi is a smart guy and I love to hear his thoughts on God. This book causes you to think deep thougths. I love thinking deep about God. Well written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah Elizabeth | 6/12/2011

    " Wonderful book! Illustrates how important our lives really are and that we truly were created for a purpose. Nothing is meaningless! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deb | 3/4/2011

    " The subtitle of this book is "how God shapes us through the events of our lives". The author expounds on this theme, illustrating his points with his usual logic and personal stories. I enjoyed it very much and would suggest it to anyone interested in Spiritual topics. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Don | 2/10/2011

    " As a work in progress myslf, I found this book to be very insightful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Asif | 1/15/2010

    " God is the Grand Weaver who is weaving the threads of our lives into a beautiful tapestry even though we may not understand His choice of thread at the moment. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert | 10/12/2009

    " Ravi provides some great insight on how the Creator God weaves the strands of our life together, each in the place He has designed. What of free will you ask? Well, read the book: its short and well worth the read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 2/27/2009
