Review: Jesus Among Other Gods: The Absolute Claims of the Christian Message by Ravi Zacharias (Audiobook)

Synopsis: In a world with so many religions, why Jesus? We are living in a time when you can believe anything, as long as you do not claim it to be true. In the name of “tolerance,” our postmodern culture embraces everything from Eastern mysticism to New Age spirituality. But as Ravi Zacharias points out, such unquestioning acceptance of all things spiritual is absurd. All religions, plainly and simply, cannot be true. Jesus Among Other Gods provides the answers to the most fundamental claims about Christianity, such as:
Aren’t all religions fundamentally the same?
Was Jesus who He claimed to be?
Can one study the life of Christ and demonstrate conclusively that He was and is the way, the truth, and the life? 
In each chapter, Zacharias considers a unique claim that Jesus made and then contrasts the truth of Jesus with the founders of Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism with compelling insight and passionate conviction. In addition to an impressive breadth of reading and study, he shares his personal journey from despair and meaninglessness to his discovery that Jesus is who He said He is.

Review: As with all Ravi's book, there  are excellent  points and thought-provoking arguments, but his prose winds a bit and the point can sometimes get lost in the prose.  This is worth listening to but should be noted that his answers are clear-cut.

Note: This review regards the Audiobook, read by the author.
