I am a Christian who is currently going through an intense Al-Anon based program where the spiritual atmosphere is one of acceptance (i.e. all religions lead to heaven). This has been a real challenge to my faith and how I relate to others who are being forced to consider the concept of God or a Higher Power.
In this audiobook I found what I was looking for, which is a comparison of the teachings of various religions relating to their version of God. I already understand clearly what the bible communicates about God. I wanted a reader's digest version of the teachings of other religions and their gods.
I also found a bit of Mr. Zacharias's personal story which helps me accept that in talking of eastern religions, he has some level of credibility. I was surprised to hear just how many rules there are in following Buddhism.
Those who wish to answer the question of "Which God is real?" may want to consider books such as Lee Strobel's "Case for..." series or my personal favorite, "I Don't Have Enough Faith To Be An Atheist" by Norman Geisler & Frank Turek.
In choosing books of this type, the reader will come away believing only what they are willing to believe, regardless of how compelling the arguments may have been presented. I recommend this book for what it offers, a comparison rather than a compelling argument.

You need to have the time to think this argument through. The centre of the book is the author's own journey, which shows his own understanding of Eastern religion. From that perspective, Ravi displays Jesus, not in terms of European Christendom but in the terms in which Jesus is presented in the original Biblical texts.
The cultural temptation is to see religion as an almost random private opinion equivalent to one's choice of music or fashion. This book argues that religion is factual, rational and open to final, decisive judgements. The argument is definitely counter-cultural... but all the more enjoyable for that.

This is a good book. For those with questions about God and for those who already have a faith, i would recomend you listen to this. It is clear and to the point.

This author seems to feel the need to attack other religions. I advise against buying anything by this hate-monger.

classic philosophy of theology and generous care of those who think differently is exercised, however the defense of Jesus is so striking. well worth the read/listen.
