The great evangelist, Ravi Zacharias, had been a pretender for decades. The influential apostle to the Academy had built a self-named empire by claiming for himself academic credentials that he did not have. He told fans and donors that he was "a professor at Oxford" and a "visiting scholar at Cambridge." He told them that he had been "educated in Cambridge," where he had ...more
