Norman Geisler was born on July 21, 1932, in Warren, Mich. He is the author of Christian texts that promote the Bible and morality and serve to provide sound advice and reasoning for the Christian faith. A fervent believer in the inerrancy of the Bible, his books When Skeptics Ask and When Critics Ask provide answers to those who question discrepancies in the Bible or challenge its authority. In Legislating Morality, he discusses why laws should be passed and enforced to create a moral, Christian society. Geisler is a frequent speaker and debater, providing learned answers about religion and society. He was educated at Wheaton College, the Detroit Bible College, and Loyola University. He is currently the Dean of the Southern Evangelical Seminary in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Ravi Zacharias was born in India, immigrating to Canada at age twenty. After earning a Masters of Divinity at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, he began a speaking ministry that has taken him worldwide (including the campuses of Harvard, Princeton, and Oxford University) as a recognized authority on comparative religions, cults, and philosophy. Zacharias' holds three doctorate degrees, and his books include the Gold Medallion winner Can Man Live without God, Deliver Us from Evil, Cries of the Heart, Jesus Among Other Gods, and two children's titles. He teaches a weekly, international radio program entitled Let My People Think. Ravi lives with his wife, Margaret, in Atlanta. They have three grown children.
