Ravi recently did a phone interview with The Wheaton Record, the student newspaper of Wheaton College.
The Record: What do you perceive to be the greatest challenge facing this generation of college students?
RZ: Understanding the uniqueness of Jesus and the explicitness of his claims. It’s a tough thing to come to terms with, given the global mood of syncretism and all-absorption. But truth by definition is exclusive. This generation has trouble understanding the very nature of truth. This generation must address the question, “How do you take that exclusive truth and deliver it with love?” They also have to face societal pressure to fulfill all their longings, whatever those might be.
