I have gotten a lot of questions about Ravi Zacharias lately, wondering what is up with him and his ministry.
Christian Research Network, Slice of Laodicea, and Apprising Ministries were the ones who seemed to originally break the story of Ravi declaring the apostate Henri Nouwen as "one of the great saints in recent memory."
Several complaints to Ravi's ministry brought the following explanation from a staffer. I hadn't until today read the whole letter... the video of Ravi himself was enough to convince me he is in grave danger. But then I thought, I better read the letter, perhaps there is an explanation. However, the letter is like watching a train wreck. It just gets worse and worse the farther you read.

I recently had a discussion about The Shack with someone who insists they were blessed by it. I say BLESSED or just emotionally stirred?
This woman took great issue with the critique posted by Jan Markell, and eventually responded by posting a critique by Lighthouse Alliance church as an alternative.
