Ravi Zacharias

Trade Paperback — B 9781455508600  $15

In WHY JESUS? bestselling author Ravi Zacharias investigates the reinvention, redefinition, and reinterpretation of the person and teachings of Jesus Christ by Western culture, with particular focus on the US, and offers a defense of the Jesus portrayed in the Bible.  The author believes that over the past forty years movements like New Age spirituality and society’s obsession with human potential have combined like a ‘perfect storm’ to redefine for popular culture what has been for centuries the classic biblical definition of the person, work, and teaching of Jesus Christ. In WHY JESUS? Ravi Zacharias looks to set the record straight.
