International Speaker and Author Ravi Zacharias Leads 2016 Veritas Forum
Pepperdine Magazine is the feature magazine for Pepperdine University and its growing community of alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends.
Ravi Zacharias, founder and president of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries (RZIM),
was the special guest speaker at the 2016 Veritas Forum held at Firestone Fieldhouse
on February 16.
The goal of the University’s annual Veritas Forum is to encourage and promote a deeper understanding of faith through a collective exploration of basic truths about God and humanity, and Zacharias examined this year’s theme of “What Gives Humans Value?” as it relates to spirituality and Christian values.
Zacharias has been an international speaker for four decades, including at engagements in world-famous universities, for government and military sectors, and given addresses at the White House, the Pentagon, and the CIA in Washington, D.C.
The former chair of evangelism and contemporary thought at Alliance Theological Seminary, Zacharias has appeared on major television networks such as CNN and Fox, and hosts radio programs with international broadcasts. He is also an accomplished author and editor, with many of his books available in Spanish, Russian, Chinese, and Korean, among other languages.
