I received a free copy of The Logic of God: 52 Christian Essentials for the Heart and Mind in exchange for an honest review. So here it is…
I had heard of Ravi Zacharias, but I’d never read one of his books before despite my best friend being a huge fan. I knew he wrote on apologetics, but that was about it. After reading this book, I am now a huge fan myself.
I zipped through this book in a matter of days—I just couldn’t put it down for long. Zacharias helps us make sense of the truths about God and how to practically apply them through his words and the reflective questions at the end of each chapter.
Throughout my journey in this book, I felt overwhelming encouragement to live a life for Christ and personal conviction in areas of my life that I need to give to Jesus. Some people look for self-help, this book is sanctification support at its best. Jesus doesn’t leave us where we were when we first met Him, He pushes us to grow. This book supports spiritual growth and maturation as we apply God’s wisdom to our lives.
What I love most about this book is that it clearly demonstrates the timelessness of our Lord God and His Word. Every chapter proves relevant to our culture and society today. I appreciate so much the wisdom to navigate a time where everyone can so readily be influential via the internet and social media. We are called to be different and Zacharias clearly outlines how God’s Word says to do it with Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
At times, the language is quite academic, so be prepared to read and reread while taking breaks to ponder and relish the lessons. In those moments it makes sense that the authors himself recommends reading a chapter a week to savor and dwell in the truth provided.
There were moments of clarity, moments of challenge, and truth after truth about the amazing God who loves us so much that He sent His Son to die for us. There’s so much encouragement in faith and in growth. You will be convicted as you reflect and consider how you can apply the lessons and truths to your own life.
Go get this book! You won’t regret it!
