Ignite the Light

Filed under: Christianity — David Jenkins @ 7:47 am

I attended the conference, “Ignite the Light” in Toronto yesterday.

I went partly to hear Ravi Zacharias, whom I had never seen in person, but have always enjoyed listening to – largely because of his adroitness in apologetics. In God in the Dock, C. S. Lewis wrote:

Finally, I must add that my own work has suffered very much from the incurable intellectualism of my approach. The simple emotional appeal (“Come to Jesus’) is often successful. But those who, like myself, lack the gift for making it, had better not attempt it.

Not so for Ravi Zacharias; I discovered yesterday that he can manage both.

  1. I attended as well, David, and, like you, was tremendously impressed with Ravi. I was in awe of his boldness for Christ, especially at the political level he was describing.
    I thoroughly enjoyed the whole conference as the speakers were outstanding, the music excellent, and the Holy Spirit in attendance.
