RZIM Critical Questions Discussion Guides

Edited by Ravi Zacharias and Danielle DuRant, InterVarsity Press, Downers Grove, Ill., 2007.

Many workers who deal with college and high school students realize good material to use in a class setting to be hard to find.  Recently we came across a series of discussion guides put out by Ravi Zacharias International Ministries that we feel will interest many of our readers.  There are four booklets that are available now.  They are titled:  Can I Trust the Bible?  What is Truth?  Is God Real?  and Who was Jesus?  Each guide has six sessions which involve discussion questions and reference material with both scriptures and secular material presented by the authors.  In each guide there is an extensive set of "Leader's Notes" that provide additional material and suggestions on how to run the class.

This is not a science series, but rather a philosophical and theological series.  The authors are men who have had other books we have reviewed in past years including Darrell Bock, William Lane Craig, Charles Taliaferro, Paul Copan, and Mark Linville.  The questions that each booklet presents are handled very well, but as is true of any work of this kind there will not be complete agreement with every answer the authors give.  There is very little denominational teaching in the material because of the nature of the questions being considered.  The booklets are attractive and the material is well written.  We recommend this material as a useful resource for teachers of college and upper high school age young people.
