Beyond Opinion by Ravi Zacharias

I have read many books by Ravi Zacharias, and always find myself challenged to think about things in new ways. Beyond Opinion - Living the Faith We Defend is no exception. It is different from his previous books because he was not the sole author, instead it is a collection of essays from apologists who work with Ravi Zacharias International Ministries. It is also different from most apologetics books that I have read in that it's focus is on relationships and people, not on arguments and positions, although it still equips it's readers with important information.

Beyond Opinion is not a "sit down and read straight through" book. I found that reading one chapter at a time and concentrating on each subject presented was easiest for me. The chapter on conversational apologetics by Michael Ramsden was one of my favorites. This is definitely a book that I would recommend to someone who is just getting started down the path of apologetics, as well as to someone who has been reading and studying in this area for years.

*I received a free copy of this book from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their Booksneeze program to review. I was not compensated monetarily, and I was not required to say nice things.
