Default RIP Ravi Zacharias

arguably the most beloved expositor of the Bible in the last 30 years.

Followed RZIM on facebook, and knew that this was coming.

Really enjoyed his radio show and reading his material. IMO, he had a real knack of getting to the heart of a "disagreement" and truly loved his debate-adversary.

I'll miss him very much.

RIP

How sad. I always loved when he was interviewed; his appeal to the listener was always founded on science and logic. Ben Shapiro (famously not Christian) interviewed him last year; excellent chat.

he founded RZIM with the mission of "helping the thinker believe and the believer think"
Nice mission, there. Both are needed.

Probably the person most thrown at me by Christians thinking they'd stumbled upon a fool-proof argument for the existence of God. At the risk of running afoul of RIPrules, I'd say his mission was more "helping the believer think they were making the thinker believe", because his stuff was pretty obviously not intended for non-believers.

That being said, this is pretty shocking. He seemed pretty vibrant.
