Orlando, FL (PRWEB) October 08, 2014
Dr. Ravi Zacharias, a world-renowned educator and Christian apologist, brings his wisdom and passion to the annual TRACS (Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools) Conference in Orlando, FL, October 22-24. The Friday night banquet will feature a keynote speech by Dr. Zacharias, “Engaging the Culture: Maintaining Biblical Beliefs in a Secular Society.”
Dr. Zacharias possesses one of the most impressive resumes any organization could hope for in a speaker. His education includes a Master in Divinity from Trinity International University, multiple honorary doctorates, prior status as a traveling scholar at Cambridge University and a current position as a Senior Research Fellow at Oxford University. His professional accomplishments include over 20 books, many with awards and wide acclaim, and an international ministry that celebrates its 30th year in 2014.
TRACS appreciates the depth and breadth of Dr. Zacharias’ education and experience, but it is his dedication to Christian apologetics and equipping educators across the globe that is the basis of his appeal. Not only the Christian community but the broader field of higher education holds great respect for Dr. Zacharias’ counsel. TRACS can now count itself among the ranks of Harvard, Dartmouth, Johns Hopkins and Cambridge —institutions of higher education that have had the privilege of witnessing Dr. Zacharias delivering his brand of ministry.
“It is an honor and a privilege for TRACS to have Dr. Ravi Zacharias associated with this year’s annual conference. Dr. Zacharias is considered the C.S. Lewis of our time and one of the most brilliant Christian apologists in the world. He’s been able to minister to so many institutions. It is truly amazing the way God has been using him in such high places. He is the only Christian apologist or evangelist since D.L. Moody to be invited to the Mormon Tabernacle,” said Dr. Tanmay Pramanik, TRACS vice president of institutional compliance.
Dr. Pramanik spoke at a conference for Dr. Zacharias in New Delhi in 2007. Since the two formed that relationship, TRACS-accredited institution Southern Evangelical Seminary welcomed Dr. Zacharias as a guest lecturer, before TRACS invited him as its keynote speaker at its annual 2014 conference.
