Monthly Book Giveaway--Walking From East to West: God in the Shadows

For more information about Monthly Book Giveaways, click HERE.


“Sometimes in the shadows of one’s self lie the problems, and in the shadows of one’s shaping lie the answers.” 
― Ravi ZachariasWalking from East to West: God in the Shadows




This month's giveaway is for a copy of Ravi Zacharias' Walking From East to West: God in the Shadows. 

I cannot speak more highly of Zacharias' books. The Lord's work is so evident through his words and through his humble Spirit-filled ministry that when I listen to him or read his words, I have to admit, I stand in quiet awe of the Holy Spirit working in and through this man. 

I read this particular book several years ago. It gives the reader an eye-opening glimpse into Zacharias' early life and conversion, and the Lord's subsequent use of Zacharias as a willing vessel for the spread of the Gospel. I am excited to offer this book and pray that the Lord would use it greatly in someone's life. 


Description of the Book from the Publisher:

For more than three decades, apologist Ravi Zacharias has shared bits and pieces of his personal life and experience. In Walking from East to West, now in softcover, Zacharias invites you to follow him on a journey through his life: to see and smell the neighborhood in India where he grew up, to feel a mother’s love and the consternation of a harsh father … and the lure of a rebellious soul. In a crisis experience, Zacharias exchanged pantheism for monotheism, and meaninglessness for true fulfillment in Christ. He has traveled from the East to the West, and then back again to answer skeptics’ penetrating questions about the meaning of life and the existence of a God who is there for his children. Zacharias invites you to follow him on this journey through his life and into the lives of others, and to see how he has become more convinced with each year that Jesus Christ is the one who came to give you life to the fullest.

Author Biography (from CBD)

  7. My path to Christ was so "easy", growing up in a Christian home and coming to Christ very early in life. I have never read a book of his, but find it so interesting to read about the journeys of others, whose paths to Christ were so different from my own, and marvel at how God works. Thanks for the chance to win, Rebekah. :)
