Tributes started pouring in after Ravi Zacharias, a popular Christian evangelist, died at 74 from a rare form of bone cancer Tuesday morning at his home in Atlanta, Ga.
Vice President Mike Pence honored him as a “friend” and, quoting scripture, a “man of faith who could ‘rightly hand the word of truth’ like few others in our time.”
Deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Ravi Zacharias, a Christian apologist whose ministry for the gospel of Jesus Christ impacted millions around the world. Ravi was a man of faith who could “rightly handle the word of truth” like few others in our time & he was my friend.
Upon the death of Abner, the Bible tells us David said “do you not know that a prince & a great man has fallen today?” Ravi was such a man & he will be missed. Karen & I send our deepest sympathies to his family and know he heard “Well done good and faithful servant.”
Pastor Greg Laurie called him a “treasure and champion of the faith” and shared that he was scheduled to speak at Harvest Christian Fellowship this month.
We lost a real treasure and champion of the faith today. Ravi Zacharias has gone to Heaven. Ravi was scheduled to speak at our Church this month, but that was meant to be. Thank God for the thousands of lives he touched.
Dr. K.P. Yohannan, founder and director of Gospel for Asia, said,
“I have known Ravi for the past three decades. I know of no one else that had such an incredible impact for the Lord Jesus Christ all over the world, especially among the top thinkers and leaders in our generation, regardless of their religious or ethnic backgrounds.”
