    more from this reviewer

    Zacharias is the thinking man's reference!

    Time and time again Ravi Zacharias proves to be one, if not the, greatest theological minds of our time. Although obviously for God, Ravi argues the honest questions and takes the debate very seriously. Unbelievably pensive and will have you thinking and asking in ways you wont predict from the start of the book at the end.

    Enjoy this and be edified by it as well!

    Reasonable, Thought Provoking

    I am now more convinced than ever that atheism is one more 'belief' system.' Anyone who reads this book with an open mind will receive many thought provoking ideas. I recommend this book to anyone who truly wishes to engage their mind in searhing for real answers to the most important existential question we face as rational beings.

    Don't be fooled by athiestic hogwash about this book!

    I have heard it said that Zacharias presents strawmen when battleing the beliefs of atheism; however, when confronted with the request of a resonable defense these same athiests back down on the matter. The fact is that Zacharias' points are very clearly defined and reasonalbly put together; thus, they lack reasonable objection by all athiests. If you are interested in the complicated world of apologetics then this is definatly the book for you. You will be challenged beyond your reason and asked to step out of your area of conformity in order for you to think on your own. In response to the statement that 'Religion is a crutch for the weak', I completely agree with that. For I know that without God this world is not living. Take a look at our world today and tell me how well our society is making it without God. A philosopher was sitting at the table and was asked what his response would be if someone asked him to prove the existance of God. He said, 'I would take him to my garden and have him look around for a while.' Silence fell as the philosopher went about his buisness. The questionare said, 'Is that it?' The philosopher said, 'Yes!' The questionare then said, 'Well suppose it's me asking the question and I am not happy with the evidence you provided?' The philosopher looked up at him, rather annoyed, and said, 'I'd tell you to look closer.'

    TRUTH

    Ravi Zacharias lays the truth on the line here. The material included is sobering and will offend many atheists. Yet Zacharias offers the information that we all too often have tried to rationalize. The Gospel in itself is offensive, but it is truth, and that is a FACT that we as a nation are going to have to come back to realize, or we are headed down the road that RV portrays here in this book. Great read!!

    I Can't Believe This Guy

    Dr. Zacharias presents more strawmen about atheism and agnosticism in one chapter than most authors do in a lifetime! If he wishes to write books attempting to dissect and refute atheism, perhaps he had better first learn what it actually IS.
