Education

In 1972, Zacharias earned his undergraduate degree from Tyndale University College & Seminary (then Ontario Bible College) and his Master of Divinity from Trinity International University. He also "has been honored by the conferring of a Doctor of Divinity degree both from Houghton College, NY" and "a Doctor of Laws degree from Asbury College in Kentucky."[2] In 2013 he received an honorary doctorate from Liberty University.[3] "He is presently Senior Research Fellow at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford University in Oxford, England. Dr. Zacharias has been a visiting scholar at Cambridge University, where he studied moralist philosophers and literature of the Romantic era."[4]

Philosophy

Zacharias argues that a coherent worldview must be able to satisfactorily answer four questions: the origin, meaning, morality and destiny of man. He says that although all major religions make exclusive claims about truth, the Christian faith is the only one able to fully answer all four questions.

Zacharias focuses his concern with existential questions. One of his focuses is the question of evolution and the origin of life. He says that evolution is irreconcilably contradictory to the second law of thermodynamics.[5]
