Ravi Zacharias

One of the great things about the age we live in is the incredible amount of information that is available on the Internet.  That is true when it comes to apologetics as well.  Unfortunately, there is also a lot of bad information out there.  One of the things that I hope to do with this blog is to point people in the right direction toward the good stuff.

One of the speakers that I enjoy is Ravi Zacharias.  He has a radio show that is wonderfully titled: “Let My People Think.”  If God prays, that probably would be one of His top prayers!  Ravi is a bit more of a philosophical apologist than I am but his work is good.  He has a helpful web-site at www.rzim.org where you can find essays or mp3 downloads of his radio show either to listen to on your computer or to put on a portable mp3 player.  Not all of his messages are strictly apologetic but he is a good preacher and worth listening to.  I am including an excerpt from his web page of some of his background.

For thirty-four years Ravi Zacharias has spoken all over the world and in numerous universities, notably Harvard, Princeton, and Oxford University. He has addressed writers of the peace accord in South Africa, the president’s cabinet and parliament in Peru, and military officers at the Lenin Military Academy and the Center for Geopolitical Strategy in Moscow. He has been privileged to bring the main address at the National Day of Prayer in Washington, DC, an event endorsed and co-hosted by President George W. Bush, and at the Pentagon. Additionally, Mr. Zacharias has spoken twice at the Annual Prayer Breakfast at the United Nations in New York, which marks the beginning of the UN session each year, and at the invitation of the President of Nigeria, he addressed the delegates at the First Annual Prayer Breakfast for African Leaders, held in Mozambique.

Mr. Zacharias was born in India in 1946 and immigrated to Canada with his family twenty years later. While pursuing a career in business management, his interest in theology grew; subsequently, he pursued this study during his undergraduate education. He received his Masters of Divinity from Trinity International University in Deerfield, Illinois. Well-versed in the disciplines of comparative religions, cults, and philosophy, he held the chair of Evangelism and Contemporary Thought at Alliance Theological Seminary for three and a half years. Mr. Zacharias has been honored by the conferring of a Doctor of Divinity degree both from Houghton College, NY, and from Tyndale College and Seminary, Toronto, and a Doctor of Laws degree from Asbury College in Kentucky. He is presently a Visiting Professor at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford University in Oxford, England.
