Apologist Interview: Ravi Zacharias

Today’s interview is with Ravi Zacharias, perhaps one of the greatest Christian apologists of our time. (Bio here.) He is author of over twenty books, and his most recent is Why Jesus: Rediscovering His Truth in an Age of Mass Marketed Spirituality. In this interview he talks his new book, the “new spirituality,” secularism and spiritual hunger, how the media can make a lie seem like the truth, how we arrived at the new spirituality, Deepak Chopra and Oprah, avoiding the dangers of the new spirituality, reasons for hostility against Christianity, how people “reshape” Jesus, the most frequent misconceptions about Jesus, advice for Christian apologists, the hardest lesson to learn when defending the faith, planning devotions, pitfalls to guard against, the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics, and more.

    "perhaps one of the…"?
    I think not: he certainly IS one of the best Christian apologists of our time.

    Listening to Ravi Zacharias speak on this issue reminded me of a line from one of Casting Crowns earlier songs, "What If His People Prayed."

    What if the life that we pursue
    Came from a hunger for the truth
    What if the family turned to Jesus
    Stopped asking Oprah what to do.

    Hands down my favorite apologist! His books and podcasts have helped keep my life focused on Christ. He also took the time to personally call my wife from half way around the world when she wrote a letter to concerning our sick child and somethings we were going through. He really has a heart for others. God bless Dr. Zacharias.

    Great apologist, I have been listening to Dr. Zacharias for a couple of months and I am amazed at the power of his words. God has blessed us with a human being that cares for others and guides you through with advice.., all for the service of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

    I really loved the bouquet apologist Zacharias. but the Indonesian essay books not published. I'd like to read more of the book because the book gave me a lot of insight into the world apologetics.
