Book Review: Beyond Opinion (edited by Ravi Zacharias)
Beyond Opinion: Living The Faith We Defend is a collection of writings on the subject of Christian Apologetics from the Ravi Zacharias think tank. I picked up this book through the BookSneeze bloggers program over a year ago, and it’s taken me this long to get through the book and to jot down my thoughts.
Beyond Opinion is very deep.
I’ll be honest it’s not the type of book that I would normally pick up for “fun” reading. The book dissects various challenges to the Christian faith and offers thoughts and ideas on how to approach our friends, neighbors, and co-workers who bring other religious perspectives and thinking to the table. Beyond Opinion opens our minds to understand the thinking of those who don’t follow Christianity, and it provides some springboards for launching into worthwhile conversation with others.
Beyond Opinion is not an easy read; however, this book is an important work and resource for Christians who are serious about sharing their faith and about intelligently talking with non-Christians. I’m sure I’ll come back to this book in year’s to come as a valuable resource in my library.
I would recommend Beyond Opinion if you’re up for the challenge of some deep thinking.
