Truth, Exclusivity, and Christianity with Ravi Zacharias

“You know professor, I think the time has come for us in the Islamic world to stop asking if Jesus Christ died and to start asking why.”
(Top Shiite Cleric in Damascus, Syria) Sheikh Hussein in a conversation with Ravi Zacharias about Islam and Christianity.  

While responding to a question, “How do you know that Christianity is the one true worldview?” Ravi Zacharias discussed the cross of Christ, the resurrection, and revealed a conversation he had permission to tell from a top Islamic cleric.  The cleric turned to Ravi, admitted that the Muslim belief in the “swoon theory” (basically, Jesus passed out but did not die on the cross) didn’t hold water factually.  Sheikh Hussein’s comment, “You know professor, I think the time has come for us in the Islamic world to stop asking if Jesus Christ died and to start asking why,” is a demonstration of a man who is starting to seek “true truth” and not just “preferred truth.”
