Is Ravi Zacharias Too Deep?

That's the question from a Yahoo searcher, whose quest for knowledge led to this blog. Is Ravi Zacharias too deep?

Good question. Some people think the ocean is too deep. Some also think the mountains are too tall. Other people see the ocean and the mountains as an invitation to dive in and hike up. Which type are you? Your answer will determine the "status" of Ravi Zacharias' mind.

I should point out, though, that if you write off guys like Ravi, you'll have to discount most of the biblical narrative as well, which points to things "which eyes have not seen, neither which have entered into the mind of man"... Deep truths require profound expositors.

Precisely. For instance, check out what Peter had to say about Paul (no mention of Mary):

And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
(2 Peter 3:15-16)

So suit up and dive in! Just watch out for sharks (or wolves dressed up as sharks, or sharks with lasers on their heads... or mutant sea bass with laser pointers... you get the idea)

That's a strange thought to me since sometimes I get frustrated that Ravi oversimplifies complicated issues. That said, I'm very grateful for his work. I think he speaks at just the right level. He is able to bring complex issues down to fairly simple levels (at a loss of meaning at times) so that they can be used by regular people.
