Ravi Zacharias Discusses Purpose Behind Speaking at the Salt Lake Tabernacle

In 2004, Ravi Zacharias became the first evangelical leader to deliver a major address from the Salt Lake Tabernacle pulpit in more than 100 years.

Nearly a decade later, Zacharias has returned. The Christian apologist and author is scheduled to speak at an open forum at Brigham Young University on Friday, Jan. 17, and also at a sold-out event at the Tabernacle on Temple Square on Saturday, Jan. 18, at 6:30 p.m. Musical guest Fernando Ortega will accompany Zacharias at the Tabernacle. Both events are free and will be live-streamed on rzim.org.

"It is an honor to visit Utah again and I am particularly grateful for the invitations to speak at Brigham Young University and the Mormon Tabernacle," Zacharias said. "This is an extraordinary privilege the organizers have given to me, and I look forward to addressing key questions relating to life and liberty."
