Ravi Zacharias, head of a global ministry and bestselling author, died Tuesday morning at his home in Atlanta, following a brief battle with cancer.

He was 74.The India-born Zacharias spent nearly 50 years addressing questions of origin, meaning, morality and destiny. He founded and led Ravi Zacharias International Ministries (RZIM) in 1984.

It was a year after Zacharias was invited by Billy Graham to preach at the first International Conference for Itinerant Evangelists, held in Amsterdam.Known as one of the world’s most outspoken Christian , apologists, Zacharias defended religious doctrine and philosophy.

He “saw the objections and questions of others not as something to be rebuffed, but as a cry of the heart that had to be answered,” said Michael Ramsden, president of RZIM said in a statement. “People weren’t logical problems waiting to be solved; they were people who needed the person of Christ. Those who knew him well will remember him first for his kindness, gentleness, and generosity of spirit. The love and kindness he had come to know in and through Jesus Christ was the same love he wanted to share with all he met.”

Zacharias moved to the United States from Canada.He was also known for his philanthropy.Zacharias is survived by his wife of 48 years, Margie; daughters, Sarah and Naomi; son, Nathan; and five grandchildren.

The Zacharias family has asked that in lieu of flowers that gifts be made to the ongoing work of RZIM.
