Item description for Beyond Opinion: Living the Faith We Defend by Ravi Zacharias...

Overview
Addresses issues such as the validity of the Bible, the hypocrisy of its followers, and the need to make a new statement on faith, allowing Christians everywhere to simultaneously defend the faith and be transformed by it into people of compassion.

Publishers Description
A definitive master work from the world’s leading Christian Apologist.

Respected apologist Ravi Zacharias was once sharing his faith with a Hindu when the man asked: "If the Christian faith is truly supernatural, why is it not more evident in the lives of so many Christians I know?" The question hit hard, and this book is an answer. Its purpose is to equip Christians everywhere to simultaneously defend the faith and be transformed by it into people of compassion.

In addition to writing several chapters himself, Ravi Zacharias brings together many of today’s leading apologists and Christian teachers, including Alister McGrath and John Lennox, to address topics present in the very future of worldwide Christianity-from the process of spiritual transformation to the challenges posed by militant atheism and a resurgent Islam. Destined to become a classic, Beyond Opinion is a touchstone that will affect Christians around the world.

Reviews - What do customers think about Beyond Opinion?

Almost there, a little more work needed.  Feb 17, 2011
Beyond Opinion is a hardcore apologist book for the serious believer. Mr. Zacharias clearly and somewhat concisely, with the help of other co-authors, lays out a book designed to combat and reach beyond the thinking of popular religious ideas in the culture, ideas such as Atheism, Hinduism, New age philosophy, Islam, Youth culture Ideas, Eastern Religion. Beyond addressing the ideas in the above religions/and or ideas, the book contains an entire chapter on Conversational Apologetics, how to get to the heart of the issue and address the person. As a teen reader that likes to dig into books like this, I was eager to crack it open and start digging! One thing that struck me as I read was that I definitely found some of the authors more interesting than others, to the extreme. Perhaps it was their topics and not the authors themselves, but it seemed the book would go through extremely dry sections. Something I did appreciate about the differing writing styles was that the stories that were sometimes shared were varied and quite interesting. I always found the point of them hammered home and usually convicting. Theologically and Biblically, I think this book was right on the proverbial money. All in all the book was not an easy read, but it was a worthwhile one. I would recommend this to any teen or adult that is serious about being an earnest apologist.

An Excellent Apologetic  Feb 19, 2008
I thought this book was an excellent defense of the Christian faith. It is a collection of essays from various apologists at Ravi Zacharias International Ministries. Some essays are better than others, and some essays require more thought than others, but overall this book is a must-read for anyone interested in going deeper in their faith.

I particularly like the chapters titled Challenges from Science, and Challenges from Islam.

 
Good Questions. Good Answers. Genuine Issues.  Jan 17, 2008
Beyond Opinion is filled with lots of good, helpful, interesting information, if you are interested in the field of apologetics--and I am. But, I appreciated this book because it does not simply address the same topics that we encounter in all the other books on apologetics. Its fresh approach addresses issues like "Challenges from Youth" and "Challenges from Eastern Religions" and "Conversational Apologetics" and "The Trinity as a Paradigm for Spiritual Transformation" in useful and insightful ways.

Also, the various authors write with an awareness of the fact that although answering questions at an intellectual level is part of the task of apologetics, also, living as an authentic follower of Christ is a key part of the task for one who would be a defender of the faith. Ravi Zacharias addresses that matter in the introduction of the book, writing, "The ultimate calling upon the follower of Christ is to live a life reflecting who he is . . ." Joe Boot reflects that awareness, as well, writing, "few things are more obvious to those engaged in sharing and defending the faith than that the messenger and the method are as important as the message." This important awareness--that living a genuine life of faith is critical to the apologetic task--seems to come through in the writings of all the authors of the book.

The following chapters were particularly helpful . . .

"Challenges From Islam" by Sam Soloman. What Soloman writes about the Doctrine of Takkiya is quite interesting.

"Broader Cultural and Philosophical Challenges" by Joe Boot. Boot writes, "Our priority in apologetics is not to make the nonbeliever listen to us, but to help the person be ready to listen to God and be taught by him." That's a terrific thought.

"The Trinity As A Paradigm For Spiritual Transformation" by L.T. Jeyachandran.

"Book Reviews That Really Excite People" by Dan Marler.

Oh wait, that that last chapter doesn't exist. But what a thrill, if it did, huh?

A book worth reading.

 
Good guide to modern apologetics  Jan 1, 2008
Beyond Opinion is a good collection of essays united under the broad theme of Christian apologetics, with introductory remarks and a conclusion by Ravi Zacharias that lay out the specific goals and themes of the book--to show the need for apologetics and outline the different kinds one may encounter in our postmodern world.

The individual chapters showcase the expertise and first-hand knowledge of a number of respected authors and apologists, with stand-out sections by Alister McGrath, Joe Boot, John Lennox, and Zacharias himself. Among the topics covered are Islam, atheism (specifically, the virulent strain exemplified by Sam Harris and Richard Dawkins), eastern religions, science, suffering, persecution, and psychology.

The book's weaknesses are few, but obvious given the limitations of space and the breadth of the subject. Some of the material is not treated deeply enough and, in a handful of places, the essays seemed unfocused or rushed. The biggest flaw is nothing peculiar to this book, though--as with any collection of essays, some are just not as good as the others.

That said, whatever problems the book has are easily outweighed by the wealth of information and thought packed into a little over 300 pages. Beyond Opinion is an ideal introduction to apologetics for anyone interested in the defense of the faith.

Recommended.
