The aim of this program is to help equip believers to better respond to individuals around them who are asking honest questions and holding sincere objections to the Christian faith. Beginning by exploring the four questions of a coherent worldview – origin, meaning, morality and destiny – RZIM Academy will offer highly interactive and practical courses that feature lectures from Ravi Zacharias, Michael Ramsden, Os Guinness, John Lennox, Amy Orr-Ewing, and many more.
Designed with consideration for working individuals with family commitments, the twelve-week introductory course is expected to occupy about three hours per week, including practical assignments that challenge participants to engage their neighbors, friends, and coworkers in fruitful dialogue. It also offers a dynamic online community for discussing challenging questions, sharing frustrations and finding encouragement from fellow students and RZIM staff.
Beyond the introductory course, RZIM Academy will soon offer elective modules covering more specific topics in greater depth. Subjects such as the problem of evil, science and religion, other religions, and basic doctrine will be offered in shorter elective courses available in fall of 2014.
The over-arching aim of this training program is that more people would better understand and know the person of Jesus Christ. That is the aim of all of RZIM’s apologetics and will be a focus of every RZIM Academy course. Also, as Ravi Zacharias frequently states, our training will emphasize that when offering an answer, it is not the question we are addressing, but the questioner. This training program is designed to help students understand not just how to address ideas, but how to engage people, understand their beliefs, and facilitate fruitful dialogue that points to the person of Christ.
