    Ravi K. Zacharias not a philospher

    This book deals with an excellent subject matter, that is the Christian answer for several different problems which other religions also pose answers to. However, Zacharias does not handle the subject matter well--either he is not a philosopher or is not skilled in constructing logical arguments. I found that in making theological statements he ignored any Scriptures which would have conflicted or seemingly conflicted with the statements he made. Furthermore, he demostrates a limited knowledge, or seemingly limited knowledge, of the other religions which he attempts to offer commentary on, and in places makes infamatory remarks about these other faiths. While he demostrates that he is well read by countless excerpts and quotations, he does not assemble or employ them in a way which creates a strong or logical argument. While he introduces several excellent points he does not fully explore them. Most disappointing is his attempt to present a coherent picture of suffering within a Christian framework. Most damaging is his avoidance of any Scriptures which might put his statements in a different light. Ultimately, this book is more propanga than any real serious scholarly effort of comparative religion or philosophy. One could take a Christian standpoint and argue Zacharias's point much more effectively than he does. I was very disappointed.
