Ravi Zacharias Ministries presents…
Festival of Thought

The aim of RZIM is to ‘Help the Thinker Believe and the Believer Think’, reaching those who shape the ideas of a culture with the credibility of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Festival of Thought creates opportunities to consider the ‘big questions’ that people of the business world are asking, touching both the heart and intellect of the thinkers and influencers of South African society.

Christian apologist and evangelist Ravi Zacharias has spent 45 years commending the Christian faith and addressing life’s great existential questions of origin, meaning, morality, and destiny with eloquence and grace. He fully believes the truth of Jesus Christ can endure the toughest critiques and philosophical attacks. He has authored and edited over 25 books in the fields of theology, apologetics, comparative religion, and philosophy. We invite you to join us at the events below, as we tackle engaging questions of truth and purpose for a deeper understanding of our faith.
