Beyond Opinion

Beyond Opinion by Ravi Zacharias is “more than a book of apologetics it will equip you intellectually, spiritually, and relationally to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.”

Individual chapters cover a range of issues that are impacting the Christian faith and worldview. Each chapter is written by members of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries who bring their insight and knowledge to the topic being reviewed.

It is an intelligent and thought provoking book that should be a resource available at every church. It is an eye-opener to read about Islam and how other faiths view Christianity. There is a chapter that every young person, youth pastor, and pastor should read as the knowledge contained within these pages will help prepare our youth for the assault on their faith and beliefs that occur within colleges and universities.

The book is heavy reading and the best way to read it is by choosing the chapters that are relevant to the current situation that you may be facing or addressing.

The beauty about this book is that Ravi brings that message being given (by Christians) will have little impact if it is not being given from a life that portrays the transforming power of Christ.

Note: This book was provided free of charge from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneeze book review bloggers program.
