Review: Has Christianity Failed You?

Has Christianity Failed You? Has Christianity Failed You? by Ravi Zacharias
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoy reading/listening to Ravi's work. I had begun listening to this a while back, but recently found the time to finish it while mowing (at least a 2 hour process with a push mower, haha). Overall this is a pretty solid book, especially for its subject matter. I'm not going to take the time to cover his points or anything like that but simply recommend who I think would benefit from this book. If you have ever wrestled with the though that maybe your faith and this thing called Christianity has failed, this book is for you. If you've questioned whether or not another 'faith' system other than faith in Christ is more true or helpful for life, I would encourage you to give this work a glance and wrestle through the arguments presented. Finally if you find yourself in conversation with anyone who fits in the previous two categories, this is a read/listen that would you might greatly benefit from in trying to present and guide another through the implications of a life with vs a life without faith in Christ. Aside from exploring the implications of both in this book, Ravi also takes the time to respond to one or two of the leading/popular alternative worldviews that people find themselves a part of after leaving/considering a faith in Christ. As with the other Ravi books that I've read/listened to, his writings are deep and really should be read with 'active reading' (i.e. take notes and the time to think through what he's writing!). This is certainly a book that I want to provide for our campus ministry as a resource for our students to wade through and process the question and implications thereof of the question so many people today seem to be wrestling with, "Has Christianity failed me?"
