5.0 out of 5 stars Jesus Revealed in Scripture is the Solution, July 9, 2012
This review is from: Why Jesus?: Rediscovering His Truth in an Age of Mass Marketed Spirituality (Hardcover)
Jesus said: "I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father except by Me" (John 14:6) and herein Ravi Zacharias explains and defends the reasons that this is the case. Napoleon admitted: "I know men and I tell you that Jesus Christ is no mere man. Between Him and every other person in the world there is no possible term of comparison. Alexander, Caesar, Charlemagne, and I have founded empires. But on what did we rest the creation of our genius? Upon force. Jesus Christ founded His empire upon love; and at this hour millions of men would die for Him." And in "Why Jesus?" the author presses this truth in contrast to many of the popular spiritual notions propagated in modernity.

Zacharias exposes Deepak Chopra, the medical doctor turned new age guru who leads countless people astray with his no-real-help self-help ideas. Chopra seems to seek fame and wealth as he rejects assured truth in Christ alone. Chopra contradicts himself and preaches a mysticism that leads people to destruction.

"There is only one door, one bridge, one ladder, between earth and heaven: the crucified Son of God" (J.C. Ryle).

He gently reveals that Oprah Winfrey seems to have left the Jesus revealed in Scripture for the self-help ideas and all-accepting notions of ultra-tolerance.

"For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace" (Isaiah 9:6).

The author believes that the real and effectual solution is the biblical truth regarding the person, work, and doctrine of Jesus (Titus 3:4-7).

In Why Jesus? Zacharias examines:

* Age of Aquarius
* Shirley MacLaine (Out On a Limb)
* James Redfield (The Celestine Prophecy)
* Rhonda Byrne (The Secret)
* Dan Brown (The Da Vinci Code)
* Eckart Tolle
* Wayne Dyer
* Deepak Chopra
* the Dali Lama
* Marianne Williamson
* Oprah Winfrey
* And more

In "Why Jesus?" numerous mystic and new age doctrines are discussed with care and patience--always with the truth of Jesus Christ looming over the analysis.

This is a fine introductory volume on a topic. Much of modernity values antinomianism, moral compromise, and mystic crudities as the goal of human potential. Zacharias offer potent, clear, and patient approach all the while aiming at the root problem: not submitting to the truth found in Jesus Christ revealed in scripture.
