Ravi Zacharias, Founder and President of Ravi Zacharias International Ministires
When former skeptic and seventeen-year-old Ravi Zacharaias heard the words of Jesus in John 14:19, “Because I live, you also will live,” the trajectory of his life changed forever. In a time of helplessness and unbelief – when he was on a bed of suicide – the truth of Scripture brought hope to Zacharias, and he committed his life to Christ. Earlier in John 14, Jesus says, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life.” This verse has become the cornerstone of Zacharias’s ultimate mission as a Christian apologist and evangelist: to present and defend the truth of Jesus Christ that others may find life in Him. At age 73 he remains committed to his calling to represent the gospel of Jesus Christ through historical, philosophical and moral foundations; and to defend it against objectors with grace, clarity and coherency. He has laid the framework of the truth of the gospels to millions of people in more than 70 countries.
Ravi Zacharias International Ministries seeks to reach and challenge those who shape culture with the credibility of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Ravi has authored or edited over 25 books in the fields of theology, apologetics, comparative religion and philosophy. He and his wife, Margie, have three grown children. They reside in Atlanta, Georgia.
