Ravi Zacharias, president of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries, and Abdu Murray, North American Director with Ravi Zacharias International Ministries, have signed on to publish a co-authored book, Jesus through Eastern Eyes, with Zondervan in February 2020.
In the West Jesus is usually seen through one lens: that of Western reasoning and linear thought. As the world becomes smaller and more people are brought to our door, a broader view of Jesus is needed-one that can be grasped by Easterners and can penetrate the hearts and imaginations of postmodern Westerners.
In Jesus through Eastern Eyes, Ravi Zacharias and Abdu Murray will capture a revitalized gospel message through an Eastern lens, revealing its power and sharing the truth about Jesus in a compelling and winsome light. Incorporating story, honor, vivid imagery, sacrifice, and rewards, Jesus through Eastern Eyes calls readers (both Eastern and Western alike) to a fresh encounter with the living and restless Jesus.
"I am so pleased to be publishing this new book with both Ravi Zacharias and Abdu Murray," says Stanley N. Gundry, SVP and publisher, Zondervan. "They will be bringing a unique perspective to bear on Jesus, one which will uncover the robustness and beauty of the Gospel."
Jesus through Eastern Eyes was acquired for publication by Zondervan's team responsible for Reflective books. The authors are represented by Andrew Wolgemuth of Wolgemuth & Associates. Jesus through Eastern Eyes will be supported by national advertising and publicity campaigns.
