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.… (més)

I received a copy of this book through Thomas Nelson's Booksneeze program. The book is a collection of essays by various authors. It is divided into three parts. Part One is titled Giving Answers and deals with challenges from different worldviews. I found the chapters dealing with challenges from Eastern Religions and challenges from science particularly helpful. Most chapters in this section dealt with issues I have read a little about previously but they all offered something new to think about. Part two was titled internalizing the questions and answers. This section contained the highlight of the book for me - the chapter on the trinity as a paradigm for spiritual transformation. Lots to think about in this chapter and I will definitely be going back for a reread.The third part, titled living out the answers deals with the church's role in apologetics. A point that came through strongly throughout the book is the need to seek understanding of what others actually believe first and the importance of living a life that is being transformed when we are seeking to share the gospel. In the conclusion Ravi Zacharius sums up with the reminder that the apologist is trying to win the person not the argument. "Tossing a verbal grenade down the chimney chute will not do" The book is not a really easy read but if you want something thought provoking I'd recommend it. ( )

Those who attempt to defend the truth of Christianity understand how difficult of a task it can be in our modern world. We live in the midst of many people with whom there is significant disagreement about the most fundamental matters of existence, and we often feel entirely overwhelmed and under-equipped to promote the truths of God in Christ around us.

Thankfully we have Beyond Opinion: Living the Faith We Defend, by Ravi Zacharias. The subtitle might be a little misleading. While it is true that some parts of the book focus on the praxis of Christianity, the book is really an apologetic field manual for the early twenty-first century.

Zacharias writes a few sections and is the general editor; the book includes discussions from a range of individuals with expertise in various aspects of apologetics. The only name that stood out to me was Alister McGrath, but the insight of the others was beneficial.

The book is broken up into sections. The first section is "Giving an Answer." The first part of that section focuses on various challenges-- from postmodernism, from atheism, from the collegiate environment, from Islam, from "eastern" religions, and from science. While all were quite beneficial, I would suggest the "Challenges from Science" chapter as required reading for everyone. In 30 pages the author there does better at handling questions regarding faith and science than can be found in many books of much more significant size.

Part of the value of this book is the second part of the first section-- a discussion of the various mindsets, worldviews, and unanswered questions that often exist behind the surface. Discussions include conversational apologetics, broader cultural challenges, the age-old question of evil and suffering, and challenges arising from cultural differences.

The second section begins to move toward the idea of "living the faith" by turning apologetics inward. Discussions focus on the concept of the Trinity as critical for spiritual transformation, the growth processes inherent in suffering and persecution, and the pitfalls of idolatry, denial, and self-deception in life. The book concludes with the third section by Zacharias on the advancement of intellectually-based apologetics among Christians and a conclusion about the need for apologetics today.

Beyond Opinion fills a needed void-- it is a robust intellectual defense of Christianity that exposes the deficiencies of other worldviews. It is not content to skim the surface of difficulties but probes deeply into not just the unbeliever but also the believer and the challenges faced by both and all. It can provide benefit for everyone who knows that they should have some kind of answer for what they believe and who seek some way to communicate the Gospel of Christ in the twenty-first century. Unbelievers and adherents of other religions will find themselves quite challenged by what is presented here. Beyond Opinion is strongly recommended for believers for consideration and growth!
