Don't know how familiar you are with Ravi's ministry and writings, but he has recently received news that his cancer will be fatal.

Man this is sad news :(
Most apologists touched my brain .
Ravi is one who touched the heart like few have since CS Lewis .
May God take away his pain and bring him comfort .

Man I’m at a loss for words :(

He is one of my heros. He is such a blessing for all people. May his passing away be as smooth as possible if this is to now happen. And may he be surrounded by so much love around him to have a touch of heaven already now.
Ravi, thank you for being.

Strangely, I found out yesterday from my son who is in California undergoing Seal trials.

Among many things am thankful for, is that, we live in a technology era (technology era in its diapers) and we can 'meet' Ravi through his videos and get inspired.
Imagine you live 500+ years from now and watch Ravi speaking. An inspiration not only for people from our times but for people who are yet to be born in some far future.

Awesome.

A sad day here, but a great day in Heaven!!! Glad he didn't linger and suffer long.

With Norman Geisler, that's two giants of evangelism that have "left the building!"

Here's a book they co-authored: https://medium.com/@sterlingterrell/who ... 544a543cb1
