Description of Walking from East to West: God in the Shadows by Ravi Zacharias
Zacharias invites readers to come follow him on this journey through his life and into the lives of others, and see how he has become more convinced with each year that goes by that Jesus Christ is the One who came to give us life to the fullest and to point us to the freedom and beauty of truth, for everyone, easterner or westerner, all over the world.

God in the Shadows
The life journey of one of our generation’s greatest defenders of the faith.
In a contemporary world, most travel is at breakneck speed. But this memoir is a journey on foot—a walk—with plenty of time to stop, to wonder, to talk, to linger, and to reflect. For more than three decades, apologist Ravi Zacharias has shared bits and pieces of his personal life and experience. Now in Walking from East to Westhe invites readers 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. Dr. Zacharias believes that the greatest argument for the living God is a life lived in Christ, and in this book, he reveals his own.
