Ravi Zacharias was a Christian apologist you might have heard on the radio. He passed away Tuesday at the age of 74, not from COVID-19 but from bone cancer. Zacharias was born in India and considered himself a religious skeptic till age 17 although he was raised in what was considered a Christian home.
He launched an apologetic’s center in 2017 and had a weekly radio program that was carried by 2000 outlets. He spoke at universities around the world and authored several books, including Jesus Among Other Gods: The Absolute Claims of the Christian Message (2000).
He also wrote Why Jesus? Rediscovering His Truth in an Age of Mass Marketed Spirituality (2012) to caution Americans about new age spiritual ideas promoted by famous folks like Oprah Winfrey and Deepak Chopra.
His perspective was insightful.
