Dr. Ravi Zacharias is a Christian Apologist which means that his job is to defend the Christian faith,particularly in debunking the idea that one has throw their reason away in order to be a Christian in this day and age. First, it is an interesting fact that he goes to many schools like Harvard, Dartmouth and others just to provide a defense for the Christian faith by simply providing an alternative for skeptical college students who have turned away from religion in general.
He is interesting because he is not afraid to address the hard questions of life like Can man live without God, Americas declined interest in religion, and Truth. These are questions people are starving to get an answer from and he provides these answers through books, and by speaking at venues such as colleges. I think his answers are applicable to all areas of life. For example in the clip below he mentions Nietzsche and says that ” once God died, humanity would have to find another absolute moral reference” As I see it this is the biggest problem that our society faces because we tell each other to “be good” and to “be moral” but if you follow these arguments there really is not a compelling argument to do those things because our society no longer has an absolute moral reference point everything is relative to each person.
Dr. Zacharias provides a different perspective that is much needed on our campus as well as in our world. I think he would be an excellent person to bring to campus, at first I thought that he might not be well received but the fact that he has been to ivy league schools listened to,and well-received I am confident that he will be well-received or at least an interesting person to have on campus. He would be offering to something new and different to students who have unconsciously rejected what they do not even know Christianity-Truth.
