Frederick Antony Ravi Kumar Zacharias (born 26 March 1946) is an Indian-born Canadian-American Christian apologist. A defender of traditional evangelicalism, Zacharias is the author of numerous Christian books, including the Gold Medallion Book Award winner Can Man Live Without God? in the category “theology and doctrine” and bestsellers Light in the Shadow of Jihad and The Grand Weaver. He is the founder and chairman of the board of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries, host of the radio programs Let My People Think and Just Thinking, and has been a visiting scholar at Ridley Hall, where he studied moralist philosophers and literature of the Romantic era, and has had six honorary doctoral degrees, including a Doctor of Laws and a Doctor of Sacred Theology. Zacharias held the chair in Evangelism and Contemporary Thought at Alliance Theological Seminary from 1981 to 1984. Zacharias is considered to be a leading figure of the evangelical intelligentsia movement.
America’s unique founding reflects a deep commitment to religious freedom where mutual respect was practiced and even secular leaders recognized the sacredness of life. In today’s culture which is often characterized by lack of shame and loss of meaning, what is the basis for morality? Is secularization just the logical evolution of tolerance?
