World-renowned Christian apologist and bestselling author Ravi Zacharias is nearing the end of his battle with cancer, according to those closest to him.
Michael Ramsden, president of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries, said:
"It appears that the time for him to be with the Lord he loved to serve is drawing near."
"He continues to remain at home where he's surrounded by close family," Ramsden said.
He added a note of thanks for the influx of messages and prayers received during this hard time, adding:
"Very often, at times in the night or during the day, they actually read those messages out to him and he receives them with joy. Even though he's now struggling to speak, he may either just simply smile or nod in acknowledgment and also in gratitude that you're staying in touch with him during a time such as this, and that you also continue to pray for him."
