Listen in on Chuck Swindoll's fascinating discussion with Ravi Zacharias—a premier, deep-thinking apologist of our day—as they discuss Abraham, failure, aging, temptation, and much more.
Chuck Swindoll introduces us to his friend, Ravi Zacharias, who is a Christian apologist. What does that term mean? And how does it relate to sharing the gospel message with others?
God diverted Ravi away from studying business to studying theology instead. Ravi learned that sharing the gospel raises many questions, and he developed a passion for answering them!
On many college campuses today, the word faith is seen negatively, as if it describes a lack of reasoning or evidence. Ravi gives the accurate depiction of faith and all that comes with it.
Abraham showed incredible faith when he left everything behind and started off into the unknown. So why couldn't he trust God through a famine? What do we learn about him?
In this depraved world, we're all tempted to yield to sin. What if our faith falters at times, like Abraham's did? Ravi reminds us that the road of sin has many U-turns in it, for our sakes.
God's command to Abraham to sacrifice Isaac gets every parent's attention! How could God ask that? But Ravi explains how it helps us better understand God's sacrifice of His own Son.
Abraham fathered three religions. But would you expect the three sons of one father to always get along? Ravi gives his observations on why there is continuing strife in the Middle East today.
Suffering comes to all at various times. But Ravi claims that only those with a Christian worldview can partially understand the bigger picture involved. What can we learn from trials?
A lot happened in Abraham's life after he became "old." Chuck and Ravi talk about continuing to serve God publicly in your later years, and Ravi shares some encouraging survey results!
Abraham lived a full life right up to his death as a very old man. Ravi and Chuck discuss what they feel should be the priorities of senior citizens in order to stay fulfilled and productive.
Christian maturity and success in ministry do not provide automatic cures for temptation. Ravi gives pointers for guarding your heart and mind from the things that could bring it all to ruin.
We shouldn't dwell on our pasts for too long, but some degree of reflection can be helpful for others. Ravi names four areas where he would have chosen differently if he had the chance.
