In a talk given at The Veritas Forum at the University of Iowa in January 1997, Dr Ravi Zacharias considers the mystery of evil in today's culture. He considers the areas of secularisation, pluralisation and privatisation and what losses they can each lead to.

Some quotes from 'Deliver Us From Evil: Restoring the Soul in a Disintegrating Culture'

Pluralism is a good thing but if pluralism is taken to mean ethical relativism that’s when the danger signs will begin to appear and that’s where you will see how evil almost becomes undefinable.

The loneliest moment in life is when you have just experienced that which you thought would deliver the ultimate and it has let you down.

Meaninglessness does not come from being weary of pain. Meaninglessness comes from being weary of pleasure.

The talk lasts for a little over 1 hour, followed by a Q&A session of about 20 minutes.
