We know that not every staff pick will appeal to every patron, but not to worry! If you need help selecting something, we have online tools like Book Browse and our Online Catalog, or you can ask one of our friendly staff members to help search for you.
Jesus Among Secular Gods by Ravi Zacharias
Jesus Among Other Gods by Ravi Zacharias addresses the uniqueness of Jesus Christ among the world religions. Its subtitle: The Absolute Claims of the Christian Message. Zacharias gives the reader a complete picture of what his goal is in the introduction, namely, the testing of the truth claims of Christianity over and against world religions: “The reality is that if religion is to be treated with intellectual respect, then it must stand the test of truth, regardless of the mood of the day. This book is a defense of the uniqueness of the Christian message.”
Mr Zacharias respectfully answers questions and defends the faith in sometimes very hostile settings. He's written many books and is always very polite. He does not address dominational issues like Baptist vs Methodist. He defends the Christian faith and answers the questions everyone has: Who am I; Why am I here; Where am I going, What's it all for; etc.
If Jesus Among Secular Gods interests you, feel free to request or check it out. We'll be back next Thursday with a different Staff Pick.
