"The works of Ravi Zacharias are a vital resource around our house, and this latest addition to our intellectual arsenal is delightfully different: a vivid, dramatized meeting of the minds through which the truth of the gospel--and Dr. Zacharias's impeccable logic--shines forth with enjoyable clarity."
"Ravi Zacharias is a first-rate thinker and a preeminent Christian apologist. With The Lotus and the Cross, Zacharias now demonstrates that he is also a gifted and imaginative writer. This captivating dialogue not only clears up confusion about the claims of Christ and Buddha, but also provides us with a highly entertaining read."
"With signs of spiritual warfare all around us, this book challenges all Christians--male and female--to arm up and engage the enemy. Its pages are chock-full of fascinating insights and solid, practical, biblical advice. It's a must-read for everyone who takes seriously Christ's command to 'Fight the good fight.'"
