Overview

New Birth or Rebirth?: Jesus Talks with Krishna by Ravi Zacharias

Ultimate truth. The destiny of souls. The individual heart. Can Krishna and Jesus agree on anything?

This is what Subramaniam, a real-life Hindu of the twentieth century, wonders as he enters a fictitious conversation between two religious figures who have changed the lives of millions. As Jesus and Krishna respond to each other’s view of life and the afterlife, they speak words straight from the texts of Christianity and Hinduism and straight into the soul.

Subramaniam asks Jesus and Krishna hard questions about faith. Meanwhile, a fictional character, Richard, eavesdrops, asking himself the most important question of all:

Does it really matter what I believe?

Comprehensive and easy to read and understand, Birth or Rebirth covers many of the similarities and differences between Hinduism and Christianity through fictional dialogue. I'd recommend this book to anyone who wants to better understand Hinduism, or those who have friends who are searching for truth, or believe that all religions point to the same God.

I bought this book hoping I'd learn a lot about the difference between Jesus and Krishna in a good, non-biased manner. Instead, this book reads like a schizophrenic author going back and forth between biased ideas. The author uses very few references and put his own thoughts, ideas and views down. It's like he's saying "This is what Jesus would say if I were him." There's no questioning what the author believes and he makes sure the conversation is biased toward his beliefs. The author also inserts phrases I'm sure he thinks are funny, but that are so out of place it's laughable. He introduces his Blackberry to Krishna and tries to explain it to him. This book would have been so much better had he presented beliefs in a non-biased way, backed up by more references and in a non-conversational way. If Krishna is who he claims to be, I'm pretty sure he'd know what a Blackberry is.
