What does it all mean? Why does it often seem that the things that happen in the world are random? Is there a purpose for my life? This book is the perfect gift for those asking the tough questions about life and wondering how they fit into God's plan. Featuring 96 short, easy-to-read pages, and including topical Scripture verses, this book is sure to speak to those searching for meaning. Content is excerpted from The Grand Weaver by Ravi Zacharias.
Discover how the unseen hand of God guides the multiple threads of our lives--our joys, our tragedies, and our daily humdrum--to weave a pattern of divine providence and meaning.
How differently would we live if we believed that every event of our lives--from the happy to the tragic to the mundane--was part of a beautiful and purposeful design in which no thread were wrongly woven? That's what bestselling author and internationally known apologist Ravi Zacharias explores in The Grand Weaver.
It's common to believe that great events such as a death or a birth are guided by the hand of God. Yet we can easily drift into feeling that our daily lives are the product of our own efforts rather than sovereignly directed.
This book brims with penetrating stories and insights that show us otherwise. From a chance encounter in a ticket line to a beloved father's final words before dying, from a random phone call to a line in a Scripture reading, every detail of life is woven into its perfect place.
In The Grand Weaver, Dr. Zacharias encourages us to examine our backgrounds, our disappointments, our triumphs, and our beliefs in a different light, explaining how they are all part of the intentional and perfect work of the Grand Weaver.

Frederick Anthony Ravi Kumar Zacharias was born into a nominally Christian (Anglican) Indian family in Madras in 1946, and grew up in Delhi. He was an atheist in his youth, but had a conversion experience after reading John 14:19 while recovering from a suicide attempt at age 17. Ravi emigrated with his family to Canada in 1966. He earned his M.Div. degree from Trinity International University, Deerfield, Illinois, in 1972.
Since 1971, when he first ministered to GIs and POWs in Vietnam, Ravi has spoken all over the world in great halls and universities including Harvard, Princeton, and Oxford.
He is listed as a distinguished lecturer with the Staley Foundation and has appeared on CNN and other international broadcasts.
The author of numerous books, he powerfully mixes biblical teaching and Christian apologetics. His weekly radio program, Let My People Think, is broadcast over 1,500 stations worldwide, and his weekday program, Just Thinking, began airing in November 2004. He is president of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries.
Some of his publications include Beyond Opinion: Living the Faith We Defend; The End of Reason; Walking from East to West; The Grand Weaver; Cries of The Heart; Recapture the Wonder: Experiencing God's Amazing Promise of Childlike Joy, and Jesus Among Other Gods: The Absolute Claims of the Christian Message.
