Imagine G. Chesterton, but coherent. View 1 comment. Great critique of unbelieving philosophy and apologetics that make the heart sing! I'm inclined to give it 5 stars because I read this shortly after my conversion to Christianity and it had such an impact. While I cannot deny that the author has, in this book, provided some interesting insights a few of which I somewhat agree with , I must still nonetheless conclude that this book is, in my opinion, unsatisfactory.

It seems to me that most of the book mainly consists of unsubstantiated, if not sweeping, assertions. One example of such an unsubstantiated assertion would be the author's claim that all the ills, crimes and evils of modern society can find their source in a non-theistic or as the aut While I cannot deny that the author has, in this book, provided some interesting insights a few of which I somewhat agree with , I must still nonetheless conclude that this book is, in my opinion, unsatisfactory.

One example of such an unsubstantiated assertion would be the author's claim that all the ills, crimes and evils of modern society can find their source in a non-theistic or as the author puts it, anti-theistic worldview. Another example would be the claim that a non-theistic worldview is devoid of meaning, morality, wonder, truth and love. Also, while it was a good debating trick for the author to flip the questions asked of Christianity by critics against them, this in itself, however, does not provide satisfactory answers to the questions.

Finally, it is interesting how while the author devotes a section to talking about there being tests which ideas and claims, including Jesus' claims, should be tested against, he strangely does not elaborate on applying these tests to Jesus' claims.

Can Man Live Without God is a profound book on the most important subject of all, can man live without God, and if not, what then? Ravi Zacharias tears apart the illogical and morally bankrupt philosophy of the modern era. He argues fiercely that the modern mindset has led to such an absence of moral responsibility that we have become spiritually depraved people searching for the next thing that can satisfy our desire without any work.

Chesterton said, "The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.

Apr 01, Julie Reed rated it it was amazing Shelves: apologetics. Ravi Z. Jan 23, Catherine Flusche rated it liked it. Note: I rank books differently than Goodreads: 3 stars is "it's okay". A pen pal sent me this, so of course I had to read it Before opening it, my conclusion has always been that yes, man needs faith, but not necessarily in the Christian God.

After completing it, I'm at the same place. Since I'm a Deist, the existence of a God wasn't an argument he had to win with me.

Unfortunately for whatever his point in writing was, it was the only argument that I actually bought. He starts out completely Note: I rank books differently than Goodreads: 3 stars is "it's okay". He starts out completely misrepresenting what it means to be atheist. I've decided that he gives a purely philosophical view, but that view doesn't translate to the everyday life of an atheist and therefore invalidates his arguments.

His only defense seems to be that "if they were false, his "enemies" wouldn't also say that they're true"--so what evidence is there that these "enemies" weren't lying about that status?

There was a complete lack of analysis here. For all the bold claims he made in the introduction, he unfortunately fell short. As always, I went into this book blind and tried to be unbiased, hoping that he'd convince me, but it wasn't there.

On an interesting note, while replying to the pen pal in question, she had said that people can never have enough guns. What I found intriguing by this statement is that on pg. In both arenas, Kantian ethics were deviously mangled. So since I enjoy complicating arguments, wouldn't we agree that it's in the interest of the collective good to put reasonable restrictions on gun ownership such as waiting periods, more thorough background checks, etc even if it means inconveniencing legal gun owners?

Granted, my argument is dependent on my reading Zacharias correctly and since he's vague more often than not, I cannot say that I did with certainty.

Jul 24, Giovanni Generoso rated it it was amazing Shelves: philosophy , apologetics , theology. God has blessed Ravi Zacharias with a brilliant mind. He is a philosophically rigorous apologist and yet he has the remarkable ability to touch at the human heart at an extremely profound level. A brilliant storyteller, sometimes I found myself laughing at the genius of his words, and others I found myself in tears, being cut to the heart by the sincerity and love with which he writes.

I have been blessed by all the works of Zacharias, and consider him a man who has had impacted me more than mos God has blessed Ravi Zacharias with a brilliant mind. I have been blessed by all the works of Zacharias, and consider him a man who has had impacted me more than most other scholars. His love for people, passion for the Lord, powerful intellect, and eloquent communication skills make for a beautiful and whole-hearted treatise.

Zacharias traces the concepts of meaning, purpose, and hope, and analyzes both the atheistic and Christian worldviews. He forcefully argues that apart from God, the human being, with all of his unfathomable complexities--his feelings of love, hate, joy, despair, hope, his longing for meaning and purpose, his yearning for intimacy and relationship, and most universally, the pain and suffering that comes from existence--cannot live.

Without the existence of a loving and good God, man is a cosmic orphan, wondering if there is someone, anyone, who loves him. The thesis of the book is that 1 the atheistic and Christian worldview paint radically different pictures of reality, and 2 the Christian worldview, and more to the point, the Person of Jesus Christ, is the only answer to man's human predicament.

I must admit, this book is very existential, addressing some of the deepest human questions that the mind of man has ever touched; and yet it is very, very intellectually rigorous.

A man like Zacharias brings both romanticism and intellect to the scene. Reading the words of the atheists themselves makes the idea that "without God, man's life means nothing," even more apparent. In the eyes of Camus, for example, life is not only meaningless, but it is also cruel.

Indeed, if God does not exist, man is left with the bear, valueless fact of his pointless existence; all that exists is "matter in motion.

It is not an easy read; Zacharias writes with extremely sophisticated language I recommend you have a dictionary close by! I loved the book though. It has impacted me tremendously. Enjoy the read! Jul 12, Denise Louise rated it did not like it Shelves: abandoned. I had hoped to get from this book some even-handed thoughts and comparisons between the belief in God and the concept of atheism.

Other reviews indicated that this book gave strong philosophic explanations for the existence of God. However, right away, the author equates atheism with Hitler and Stalin yet reject the arguments and examples of horrors perpetrated in the name of Christian religion. It just didn't feel very even-handed at that point, and the author is hiding behind his deep philos I had hoped to get from this book some even-handed thoughts and comparisons between the belief in God and the concept of atheism.

It just didn't feel very even-handed at that point, and the author is hiding behind his deep philosophical word speak to cover his complete bias on the subject. This is not the book I expected or wanted to read. Feb 06, Sergio Flores rated it it was amazing Shelves: books-i-don-t-own.

This book shows how devastating it is when you remove God from the picture and all the things we take for granted that are grounded and are present solely because God is there.

Can Man Live Without God?

Venting an identical disillusionment in his commentary on the American culture, George Will averred that there is nothing so vulgar left in our experience for which we cannot transport some professor from somewhere to justify it. Why this juxtaposing of aberrant behavior with the halls of learning? The answer is well worth pursuing if we are to deal with our present cultural malaise by understanding its progenitors, and thwart what looms as a future with terrifying possibilities. It is not unprecedented that as a young nation begins to reach its adolescent years, it craves freedom from any restraint.

Give me the making of the songs of a nation," said eighteenth-century Scottish political thinker Andrew Fletcher, "and I care not who writes its laws. I readily grant Mr. Fletcher his assertion. My own experience testifies to the impressions carved upon my consciousness by popular music. Beyond that, such music accorded me the privilege of identifying with the expression of shared sentiments.
