The Lamb and the Fuhrer: Jesus Talks with Hitler (Great Conversations)

The Lamb and the Fuhrer: Jesus Talks with Hitler (Great Conversations) Ravi Zacharias clearly lays out in conversational tone some of the main tenants of the Gospel and scripture What does it mean to be created in the image of God Why is human life important What is the true pursuit of glory What is the purpose of the church What does the separation of church and state look like from a scriptural point of view A great read for an introduction into the philosophical underpinnings of the Bible through conversation with an imposing figure in scripture.The writing itself leaves something to be desired, but the way it unpacks complicated philosophies and makes them approachable to all easily makes up for any shortcomings Worth the read. Home time ago I read a book, Between Heaven Hell It is a fictional conversation between Aldous Huxley, John F Kennedy and C.S Lewis just on the other side of death the three all died on the same day It was an insightful read and is one I like and even value.This book is supposed to be a fictional account between Jesus and Hitler with Dietrich Bonhoeffer as a sort of witness Sadly this book wasn t really up to what I d hoped to find While it will to some be an uplifting read at least I suppose it will it s of a group of doctrinal statements placed in the Saviour s mouth Hitler is of a straw man screaming diatribes and simply there as a foil.You might try this one for yourself I was really hoping for and I mean no disrespect to the writer or his ministry Maybe try it for yourself if you re curious Wasn t what i was hoping for. Peter Kreeft is good at these sort of books containing fictional dialogues between historical people Unfortunately, Ravi Zacharias not so much in this book Zacharias Jesus doesn t really sound anything like Jesus as he rolls off dry apologetics and polemic statements About a third of the way into the book, Dietrich Bonhoeffer joins the conversation and it becomes a double team Of course, the challenge with doing Hitler is that he s so indisputably evil, there s no one to reach through niceties It might be interesting to read Zacharias conversation between Jesus and Buddha At the end, while the book was theologically sound, it was very weak in presentation. Una incre ble historia A veces necesitamos de libros como estos para abrir m s nuestros ojos.La historia de lo que pas en Alemania durante la vida de Hitler, es realmente terror fica Este libro, es grandioso, no quiero hacer spoiler, as que no dar detalles, pero s debo decir que debemos de arrepentirnos antes de que seamos llevados al final de la vida y nos encontremos con Aqu l quien nos cre.Abramos nuestro coraz n hacia l y am monos los unos a los otros como Jes s lo hizo. Dull Platitudes that Ignore the Reality of ChristianityRavi introduces his book by comparing Jesus to Adolf Hitler What he forgets to mention is the blood soaked history of Christianity, especially over the thousand years that were the Dark Ages He ignores the true meaning of the word sacrifice a permanent loss given up for the greater good and lumps Jesus in the same category as Bill Gates and Doctors Without Borders They sacrificed far than Ravi s mythological figure, who, according to his own bible, is in heaven enjoying eternal bliss Could he get any petty and condescending to victims of human and natural tragedies Probably so, but such is not the subject of this book.I have to give Ravi credit, however, for being honest enough to wear his motivations on his sleeves Not only does he concede that this book is an open attempt to convert non Christians to Christianity although the specific brand of his religion seems deliberately nebulous, only described in nebulous terms such as love and justice Again, he ignores the many verses in the bible used to justify slavery and genocide If you are familiar with his book The End of Reason, Zacharias is happy to dismiss Jesus silence on the issue of slavery simply by stating Jesus was silent on a lot of issues Wow That s it No explanation of why slavery was unimportant for a loving god to denounce Good grief People like Ravi deserve no respect on this issue.Ravi s thinly veiled attempt to present Christianity as the best moral framework is pathetic The Ten Commandments are mentioned near the play s outset What he forgets to mention are the numerous genocides carried out in the Old Testament and which are frequently dismissed by apologists using special pleading He also dismisses the well documented studies that show non religious countries Japan, Sweden, the Netherlands, Belgium etc as having the lowest rates of murder, theft, rape and abortion Where does good old Christian America sit in As one of the most violent first world countries existing today Google the information Google Nation Master if you doubt me The facts are irrefutable Religion allows people to justify anything with the get out of hell free card that is repentance That destroys moral accountability before Christianity is even out of the gate.Even as a play, this book fails utterly The dialogue is boring and trudges along at an appalling pace Anyone who has read any of Zacharias lengthy pieces can see the conclusion and babbling diatribes a mile away.Lastly, I would like to comment on Ravi s comparison of Jesus and Hitler According to Ravi, Hitler epitomizes evil, hatred, pride and destruction, while Jesus exemplifies peace, love, humility and life Bunkum Complete and utter bunkum What could be arrogant than claiming that one is the son of god Little save claiming to be god himself And would a loving god not start and end creation with heaven Why set two beings up to fail Christianity was used to justify slavery, as most honest individuals will admit. Others have rightly compared this book to the one by Peter Kreeft on a postmortem encounter between Lewis, Huxley, Kennedy, which I have also read It definitely wasn t as good as Kreeft s book and I didn t think that was that great, but it was better than this one So as for this book not terrible not great somewhere in between Zacharias had some good ideas such as working in Bonhoeffer s Who Am I but unfortunately all the characters, including Jesus, still seemed rather flat They all seemed like personifications of ideals than as persons But at least it is an easy and quick read so it s not a big time investment Some reviewers really liked it, so I d say that if you are interested go ahead and read it. I love these books Read this in one day two cups of coffee in different locations Ravi is just about my favorite human being on this planet don t tell my dog he won t understand and i m attempting to read all of his books I m getting there This book is one of the few that i m not sure I totally agree with Ravi has Jesus saying I would like to take you to My Father Adolph He awaits all who will come to Him Just follow Me Would Jesus really say that The Calvinist in me shouts Not likely But In a twisty kind of way perhaps this could happen similar to His comment Why do you call me Good Nobody is good except God alone So Yes, Jesus can be a bit trixie at times See He does have a sense of humoronly Adolph won t be laughing.But that s the only challenge for me in this book Ravi even shows that Hitler does not change His very nature is set and stubborn, as I think all people s will be when they stand before God as the demons will be also Non christians won t all of a sudden become perfectly humble Jesus lovers when they stand before God to be judged They will probably all claim to defend their actions and EVEN accuse God of doing a poor job of revealing His truth as Hitler does here.Personally I don t know if there s much difference between Hitler and most of the other Nazi s, or even people today who hate Jesus and the Bible yet claim to use a altruistic humanitarian means of removing Jesus from this planet Is abortion and women s freedom really much different than the Nazi s mass murders and Germany s pride It was a joy to see Dietrich Bonhoeffer confront Hitler I look forward to reading this book again SOON I was trying to think who else would be a good chat with Jesus Muhammad perhaps, or the Mormon s Joseph Smith, or Benny Hinn He s not dead yet but who cares or Maybe Christopher Hitchensyeah, that would be enlightening Ravi s too nice a guy to do that one Maybe I ll do that myself.
