One thing that was memorably surprising was his argument for the Genesis creation story being figurative, based on Genesis itself.
There's an interesting coincidence between the title of this book and RHS Crossman's The God that Failed, a book about communism...which of course is one of the 'gods' covered in Ramachandra's book. One has to wonder.
For anyone reading Vinoth's book for the first time, i suggest starting with ch 4 - Job and the silence of God. This is the most easy to read. The chapters can be treated as stand alone. The book talks about the modern idols in our lives and how we try to defend God. Some times our own explanation of God maybe a very wrong representation of the true living God. The book discusses 8 'gods' which we and everyone around us takes for idols and how and why they fail us. This book cleared my eyes to 'see' the world around me and identify the idols around me.
Also in Indian print for those in South Asia.
