Ravi was involved in Christian apologetics for over 40 years... and wrote over 30 Christian books... including the Gold Medallion Book Award winner entitled... Can Man Live Without God? Ravi was also the host of the popular radio program... Let My People Think.
Following his death on May 19th, 2020... a number of high-profile Christians posted messages praising Zacharias for his ministry and influence... including football superstar Tim Tebow... popular Christian artist Lecrae... and Vice President Mike Pence.
