The Logic Of God By Ravi Zacharias & Giveaway

The Logic of God
by Ravi Zacharias
Publisher: Zondervan
ISBN: 978-0310454038

I read Ravi Zacharias' biography last winter and it was wonderful. I'm not big on biographies, but Ravi is incredible and I was so thankful when a friend offered to loan me her book. When FrontGate asked me to review his newest book The Logic of God there was no way I was saying, "No," to them.

Summary:

We all have doubts that challenge our faith. We wonder whether the Bible still matters, or whether God is truly as loving and personal as we hope. In his first ever devotional, The Logic of God, apologist Ravi Zacharias offers 52 readings that explain how and why Christianity, the Bible, and God are still relevant, vital, and life-changing for us today. To all our dilemmas Ravi says, "I am convinced that Jesus Christ alone uniquely answers the deepest questions of our hearts and minds."

With a remarkable grasp of biblical facts and a deep understanding of the questions that trouble our hearts, Ravi tackles the most difficult topics with ease and understanding. But The Logic of God is more than intellectual; it is also personal, offering thoughtful wisdom on:

  • when Jesus draws especially near you.
  • the deep ray of hope found in God's Word.
  • how God transforms disappointments.
  • why prayer matters.
  • how genuine peace is possible.
  • making sense of suffering.

​Ravi makes profound biblical truth easy to understand. And if your life is busy, this book is designed for you! It addresses 52 topics that you can read over the course of one year or slowly digest at your own pace. Each entry includes a Scripture, questions for reflection, and some practical application steps.


When you're struggling with questions and doubts, confused, curious, or just want a clearer way to express your faith The Logic of God has answers that satisfy the heart and the mind.


My Review:

What an incredible book for Christians to have on hand. Ravi Zacharias is an incredible apologetic. He applies this gift in his book The Logic of God to help us grow deeper in our own faith as well as being able to share it with others.

He wrote this in a way that we read one chapter a week for 52 weeks. Ravi has us covered for an entire year. He broke it down into weekly readings because he doesn't want us to skim the topic for the day. He wants us to read it and mull it over throughout the week. He starts each chapter with a scripture and ends with 2 questions for reflection and 2 questions for application.

When I first started going through the book, I "ended" up in a conversation with an unbeliever. God knew exactly the timing of this book being in my life and this discussion starting! I knew Ravi would have answers for me because he's so incredible at apologetics. For myself it was important for me to read Chapter 11"Crossing Bridges" so I knew how to approach people who have a different worldview than I do. Chapter 3 "Point of Exclusion" was a significant one to share in the conversation with the unbeliever.

Taking Ravi's request to heart, I haven't made it through the entire book since I've only had it for a few weeks. For the review I skimmed the rest of the book and I'm looking forward to a full read of it. So far, the weeks have been poignant to reflect on throughout the week. The questions are certainly challenging ones for me because I'm not very cerebral. They have caused me to think deeply about my answers and my beliefs. I can answer some questions on an emotional level, but often times answering them with clear and concise answer.

I'm hoping that when I finish with 52 weeks I'll be channeling a bit of Ravi Zacharias through my brain! I think this would be a fantastic book to work through either individually or with a group of people. Having a discussion over each topic would be a wonderful way to build upon what we learn by hearing what God has shown others.

Now you have the opportunity to win The Logic of God as well! Ends 6/15/19.
