Title: Jesus Among Other Gods


Author: Ravi Zacharias

I read this book in/on: my own softcover copy

My personal thoughts on this book: This is one of those books (as most are from Mr. Zacharias) that is not a fluff and stuff read. There is just too much to chew and to ponder, but I am far enough in to know it is a gem and just what I am studying currently myself.

For instance, the introduction..."We are living in a time when sensitivities are at the surface, often vented with cutting words. Philosophically, you can believe anything, so long as you do not claim it to be true. Morally, you can practice anything, so long as you do not claim that it is a "better" way. Religiously, you can hold to anything, so long as you do not bring Jesus Christ into it. If a spiritual idea is eastern, it is granted critical immunity; if western, it is thoroughly criticized. Thus, a journalist can walk into a church and mock its carryings on, but he or she dare not do the same if the ceremony is from the eastern fold. Such is the mood at the end of the twentieth century."

Here is a link where you can find/purchase this book:

Jesus Among Other Gods

A favorite quote from the book: 

"My earnest prayer is that when you read this, you will make a judgement of the Christian message based on truth, not the mood of our times. Moods change. Truth does not."

Moods...ah, yes, I was just lamenting this on the simple woman fb page this morning. We, as women, know all too well about "moods" don't we?
