Two widely known and respected Christian leaders have passed away in recent days.
Ravi Zacharias was one of the greatest Christian apologists and evangelists of recent times, and a wonderful, humble servant of God. Ravi passed away after a battle with cancer of the spine. He was 74. He was born in India in 1946 to an Anglican family, but rebelled during his youth. He was suicidal as a teen, but found Christ at age 17. After completing studies in Canada, the US, and the UK he settled in the US where he established the Ravi Zacharias International Ministries. The legacy of Ravi Zacharias will last well beyond the years he spent on earth.
David Pawson was a well-known and well-loved UK Bible teacher. He died at the age of 90 after battling a number of health conditions. In recent years he’d suffered with bone cancer and a mild form of Parkinson’s disease and was receiving care at a nursing home. Friends say he passed peacefully, without pain. David was a prominent United Kingdom-based Bible teacher, author and public speaker and was considered one of the finest Bible expositors in the world. He last travelled to South Africa in 2010 but was still launching new books right up till the time of his death.
