Storming the Gates

An unfair attack and campaign against Craig Hazen has been launched because of his participation in an event in Salt Lake City a couple of years ago.  Craig, along with Ravi Zacharias, who gave a strong evangelistic message, and other Christian leaders engaged in the even with Mormons to advance the evangelistic dialog with the goal of persuading Mormons, that night or in the long term, of the Biblical truth of Jesus Christ.
