From his first moment of conversion, he was totally committed. He was even able to find Christian churches in India. He also went to Campus Crusade for Christ meetings. They were alive and active in India!
As Ravi unfolds his story, he is careful to reveal how God is always with him in the shadows directing his path.
Now for the book, first it is just a great story, of course, you need a great story to have a good memoir. It is essentially the story of a man who experienced Matthew 6:33 (But [s]seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.). And it also deals with the often controversial topic of destiny - as one of Ravi's other books "The Grand Weaver" does. God in the shadows - will God just guide us through it all regardless of our own actions to appear at His eventual purpose? What carries us through breaking points in our lives? What is the importance of praying family members? How do our actions, contributions, donations, and prayers affect people thousands of miles away from us? How do we discover our purpose in life? If you have ever thought about these questions, you will find answers in this book. Of course, you have to deduce the answers because this is the story of another man's life but if you want more direct answers, then buy "The Grand Weaver" and read both together.
God bless Ravi, RZIM, and his family.
It first talks about the author's childhood and living standards in India. Also, how he grew up in a nominal Christian family, faithfully attending services but not pious.
It further explores his relationship with his dad (who he is quick not to blame), his mum and his grandmother, his education while he was young, his own struggle with his own loneliness which culminated in a suicide attempt. One surprising fact was that Ravi Zacharias was a rather good cricket player and still is excited about this sport.
One verse that was stuck with him whist on bed recovering from his suicide attempt was John 14:19b "Because I live, you also will live". Which nearing the end of the book gives a surprise about the significance of this verse in his own (family) life.
After conversion, Ravi was deeply influenced by YFC and also was exposed to preaching, which in the future would be his full-time vocation: A itinerant preacher and apologist.
Hereafter Ravi talks about his life as one training to be a hotel manager, and the family's transit to Canada and how he met Margie (his future wife) and also how he was slowly used by God in his preaching, within Canada and in other parts of the world.
What I personally felt the book was highlighting was how God was working behind the scenes in his life, God has indeed plan all things in his life to make him who he is today.
Second, I've seen how passionate Ravi is for the Indians, how he longs for all to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. Many times he shares about how he longs to be able to go back to India frequently and see more of them come to know and believe in Jesus Christ.
