    BOOK REVIEW: The Logic of God by Ravi Zacharias

    Tuesday, May 14, 2019

    With different religions surrounding us, suffering perpetually in the news, and questioning of God’s care for us and sovereignty over our lives, the inquiry of God’s existence and Christ’s deity of Christ will inevitably arise. We need to “always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have” (I Peter 3:15).

    Sometimes the person asking for the reason for hope is yourself. These questions about God surface in our hearts during the stillness of the night: Does God not know my longings for marriage? Why is He not giving me what I desire? He must not care about my mother who is ill. Does He even exist? Is Jesus really the Son of God who has power to do anything? Then why am I not gaining victory in this area of life?

    Sometimes the person searching for hope is the coworker, the friend, the family member: Why is there evil in the world? How can your religion claim to be the only way? How does your religion make a difference in your life? If Christianity is true, why are there so many hypocrites in church?

    Being a woman who is prepared to give an answer requires reading, praying, and seeking. Recently, I picked up the book The Logic of God by Ravi Zacharias. This book contains fifty-two short but densely packed readings filled with scripture, quotes, and easy to understand logic. Each reading ends with reflection questions and personal applications from the lesson. These are challenging questions that will provoke much thought so I, along with the author, recommend spending a week or a few days meditating on the Truths presented or in conversation with others.  

    I love the previously mentioned verse - 1 Peter 3:15. The season of singleness can be one of loneliness and darkness. If you live in light of the Truth, your singleness can actually be one that leads others into Gospel discussion. How are you so happy being single? Don’t you question whether God cares or not? You actually believe in a God who doesn’t give you what you want? And then you can give the reason for your joy. Rodney “Gipsy” Smith says, “There are five Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and the Christian, but most people will never read the first four.” In your singleness, you have the opportunity to be an example of the Gospel to those who may never even open a Bible.

    The Logic of God gives answers to many questions of the heart and mind - for everything from the exclusivity of Christianity, the problem of pain, the effectiveness of prayer, the lack of morality, addressing the evil within, and so much more. If you are looking for answers to your questions, probing questions for others, or thought-provoking topics to wrestle with, Ravi Zacharias provides a great resource to get started with.

    The Logic of God Book Description:Jesus Christ alone answers our deepest questions. 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.
