The Logic of God with Ravi Zacharias
We all have doubts that challenge our faith. We wonder whether the Bible still matters, or whether God is truly as loving and personal as we hope. We question if God is really an all-loving God than how can bad things happen. When tragedy or a difficult season occurs in our lives, we wonder where God in the midst of our trials is. For some the doubts cause them to stray from God and for others, their questions lead them to find the Truth.
In his first ever devotional, The Logic of God, apologist Ravi Zacharias offers 52 readings that explain how and why Christianity, the Bible, and God are still relevant, vital, and life-changing for us today. Zacharias writes and speaks from personal experience. When Zacharias was 17 years old, he was a skeptic and was on a bed of suicide. The truth of Scripture brought hope to Zacharias and he committed his life to Christ. Now at 73, his commitment to the pursuit of the truth is the same as it was when he first met Christ. His calling is to, “present and defend the truth of Jesus Christ that others may find life in Him.”
In 1984, he founded Ravi Zacharias International Ministries (RZIM) and today it has shared the gospel with millions of people in more than 70 countries. In addition to having authored or edited 25 books in theology, apologetics and religion, Zacharias also speaks on radio, television, and podcasts that reach listeners around the world.
In “The Logic of God,” Zacharias makes profound biblical truth easy to understand. It addresses 52 topics that you can read over the course of one year or slowly digest at your own pace. Each entry includes a Scripture, questions for reflection, and some practical application steps. With a remarkable grasp of biblical facts and a deep understanding of the questions that trouble our hearts, Zacharias tackles the most difficult topics with ease and understanding. But The Logic of God is more than intellectual; it is also personal, offering thoughtful wisdom on: when Jesus draws especially near you, the deep ray of hope found in God’s Word, how God transforms disappointments, why prayer matters, how genuine peace is possible and making sense of suffering.
Zacharias shares his perspective on dilemmas in the book.
“I am convinced that Jesus Christ alone uniquely answers the deepest questions of our hearts and minds.”
“ No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[a]neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:37-39

Ask the hard questions. It is okay and normal to go through periods in our faith journey where we question or doubt God. Instead of allowing those doubts to grow into disbelief, take time to study and try and get answers to your questions. It might mean asking a pastor, small group leader or professor for help. It could be looking at resources like Logic of God, Evidence That Demands a Verdict by Josh McDowell or Case for Christ by Lee Strobel. Sometimes it can be helpful to write down your questions or doubts and pray and ask God to show you His truth. Remember that God doesn’t promise us that He will answer everything right then and there. Understand that we might never know the reason God allowed an event or circumstance to occur.
Seek God with others. Sometimes when we are going through a difficult period of time or have doubts, it can be helpful to have friends and family in our lives. Pray and ask God to help you connect with a group of people. It could be a small group at church, a group of friends or even an accountability partner. It can be helpful to read a book or do a bible study like Logic of God together. Be willing to create a space where people can ask questions and not feel judged or criticized. Take time to try and answer people’s questions. If you don’t know the answer right away, try and research it as a group and share what you learned the next time you get together. Pray and ask God to show you His truth too.
Pray for the skeptics. Each of us has skeptics in our lives. It could be a friend or family member. Their questions can frustrate us. But rather than allow that frustration to cause division, pray and ask God to help you love that person and if there are questions you can ask that might help them see God’s truth. Remember the Holy Spirit working in someone’s heart cannot be seen and is more powerful than any argument or evidence that we might come up with on our own.
