Overview

Designed as a tool to reach the unsaved, this intriguing book has enormous evangelistic potential. Ray Comfort shares the spiritual beliefs of over 120 top Hollywood stars from past and present, such as Tom Cruise, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Madonna, Peter Jennings, Winona Ryder, John Wayne, and George Clooney, with beliefs ranging from reincarnation to the idea that God is a woman, "a deity created in our image," or "a shaft of light in a doorway." Most importantly, the author compares many of the celebrity views against the Bible, so that the gospel is clearly communicated throughout the book's pages. Readers will be challenged to examine their beliefs as they are gently persuaded by God's Word. In addition, the book will strengthen believers in their own faith by discussing the evidence for the existence of God, inspiration of the Bible, divinity of Jesus, etc. This riveting book makes an excellent evangelistic gift, with many readers buying one copy for themselves to gain insight into what others believe, and additional copies for lost friends and neighbors to lead them to the truth.

This is an excellently written book. Ray Comfort has a flair for words. As usual, he is entertaining and informative. People just love to know everything about Hollywood celebrities, but how often do you hear about their beliefs? Great concept for a book.

It was interesting to see points of view of different Hollywood stars, and surprising to see what some of them think. The commentaries following some of the quotes was interesting and helpful. It may help answer some questions readers have about faith.

It is amazing to see just how many big name Hollywood stars are in this book. Ray Comfort does an extraordinary job of finding out the faith of the famous. He uses their beliefs and compares that to the plumb line of Scripture. Excellent book, I highly recommend it!

Actors have a lot of money and a lot of fame but they have very few answers. Great book let's you in on actors real views of what's important and reveals that they are just like everyone else. Makes people think about the true hopelessness of life and death without Jesus Christ.

If you like to read any sort of magazine about hollywood stars or like to watch E! then you will really appreciate this book! Or if you are just a spiritual person, it will interest you to see what the masses are thinking and saying. This book has quotes and things you would never know or believe. It was very informative and some of the things I read I had to say, 'You believe that? C'mon!' While others I was like 'Wow! I would have never thought you even had a conscience.' It has a lot of quotes. Very very good!

I was amazed at the lack of depth in certain people in Hollywood. Some are so thin I'm not sure they even believe that Hollywood exists.

This book was a quick and interesting read; I enjoyed learning that the famous also believe in God, even if they don't claim to have all the answers. Ray does a fine job not judging but using the quotes to share Bible answers.

It is very rare that you get this close and intimate with the stars. This is information from their own hearts, not some journalist opinion in order to sensationalize a story. I love it and would love to see a sequal.

Chase after the wind. So many have built their treasures on earth..no wonder Jesus warned against the deception of riches. This book is definitely a good witness tool for those whom you've had on your prayer list a long time, but are wondering how to encounter them! Even relatives will dive into this book!

This is a great book for those who love to delve into what's going on in Hollywood. The faith of Hollywood is something that is often overlooked. The author has done his research.
Guest More than 1 year ago
The book is chock full of quotes of celebrities on spiritual matters and Ray uses their quotes for an opportunity to highlight either the truths or the errors in their thoughts. In the process he explains the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I found the book entertaining and inspirational.

Recently I purchased two copies of this book. One for myself and one as a birthday present for a movie lover with a massive DVD collection. I thought it would be the perfect gift, focusing on her favorite entertainment, celebrities. I picked a winner. She absolutely loved it and is normally not much of a ¿book person¿ nor typically interested in things of a religious nature. This struck her fancy, big time. I then began reading my own copy and found it much more entertaining than I expected, being that I am not half the movie lover she is. Right off I was intrigued by some of the names I was finding in the table of contents. Bob Dylan, John Lennon, Stephen King, Alice Cooper, Tom Cruise, Charlie Chaplin and Christopher Reeve were just a few names that caught my eye. It would be interesting to have a look inside their heads to see what makes them tick. I wondered though, if it would read like a tabloid. Quickly I found that not to be the case, as the author seems to have done his homework, in many cases using quotes from the celeb¿s themselves, on just what it is they believe and how they came to that conclusion. Regardless of who you are a fan of, you will raise an eyebrow or two at some of these candid quotes on the often unheard of beliefs in Hollywood. This will definitely be making it into the hands of a few more friends of mine for Christmas. I would highly recommend this to anyone with an interest in celebrities, although that is by no means a prerequisite for enjoying this book. I think just about anyone would find it intriguing and it¿s a great gift for an office grab-bag too! Keep a copy on the coffee table when you have guests. They¿ll love it!

Ray Comfort takes you on a journey past the glammor and facade to the inner rooms of Hollywood's biggest stars. You will discover celebritie's most intimate comments about their faith and questions they struggle with like the rest of us. Realize that God is not as difficult a subject to talk about as you think - people are interested in it!

What a pleasure to read something from contemporary Christendom that so nicely reflects Christ. No nasty invective here, just gracious 'reporting' and commentary.

This is an excellent book to help you understand why Jesus Christ came here to this earth and died on an old rugged cross...FOR YOU! When two officials in a basketball game aren't sure about the ruling of some call, they go to the rule book to find the answer. That's the same with the Bible. We have all these people believing all these different things, but only one can be true(they cannot all be true since they are all different to one another). So how do you determine which one is true? By comparing it to the Bible. GOD left his Word here for us to use to know the truth, and also to determine what is true and what is false. You may say you don't believe in the Bible but if I say I don't believe in trucks and then I go out and sit in the middle of the street, does my own personal belief change reality? I can say I don't believe in trucks all I want but the second a truck comes along, it will splatter me into pieces! Therefore, your own personal belief does NOT negate reality! It does not change what's real! So read the Bible with an open heart and an open mind and you will see the truth, and the truth shall make you free. What Hollywood Believes is an excellent book!
