• Is your God real, or just an "imaginary friend"? • How can a loving God exist when there is so much suffering? • Have Christians waged senseless war on other faiths, on the environment, and on each other in the name of a nonexistent God? There's a new atheism taking root in America, a movement more powerful and subversive than the atheism of Madalyn Murray O'Hare in the 1950s and 1960s. Led by writers such as Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, and Sam Harris, this newest challenge to Christianity — or to any belief in God — has a smooth and easy appeal to a new generation of Americans. When Harris's Letter to a Christian Nation was published, Dr. Ravi Zacharias knew that he must respond. For over thirty years, Dr. Zacharias has been an acclaimed apologist for Christian thought and belief. In this response, he gives a strong and rational answer to Harris's claims. Dr. Zacharias's words are not only for those who have read the writings of the new atheists, but also for Christians who have felt their beliefs come under fire in the marketplace of ideas. When you pray, are you talking to a God who exists? Or is God nothing more than your "imaginary friend," like a playmate contrived by a lonely and imaginative child? When author Sam Harris attacked Christianity in Letter to a Christian Nation, reviewers called the book "marvelous" and a generation of readers — hundreds of thousands of them — were drawn to his message. Deeply troubled, Dr. Ravi Zacharias knew that he had to respond. In The End of Reason, Zacharias underscores the dependability of the Bible along with his belief in the power and goodness of God. He confidently refutes Harris's claims that God is nothing more than a figment of one's imagination and that Christians regularly practice intolerance and hatred around the globe. If you found Sam Harris's Letter to a Christian Nation compelling, the book you are holding is exactly what you need. Dr. Zacharias exposes the utter bankruptcy of this worldview. And if you haven't experienced Harris' book, Ravi's response remains a powerful, passionate, irrefutably sound set of arguments for Christian thought. The clarity and hope in this audiobook will reach out to listeners who know and follow God as well as to those who reject God.
