VINCE VITALE is the director of the Zacharias Institute. He was educated at Princeton University and the University of Oxford, and he later taught philosophy of religion as a faculty member at both of these universities. It was during his undergraduate studies in philosophy at Princeton that Vince took an unexpected journey from skeptic to evangelist. He then completed masters’ and doctoral studies at Oxford.
While researching at Oxford, Vince developed a new response to the problem of evil. This response, termed the nonidentity defense, is discussed in Vince and Ravi Zacharias’s book Why Suffering? Finding Meaning and Comfort When Life Doesn’t Make Sense. In 2017 Vince and Ravi released a second coauthored book, Jesus Among Secular Gods: The Countercultural Claims of Christ.
Vince has commended the Christian faith at many universities, including the University of California, Berkeley; Johns Hopkins; Carnegie Mellon; Princeton; Oxford; and Cambridge. He has also spoken at Google headquarters and Passion City Church.
Vince is married to Jo, who also works with RZIM as the dean of studies for the Zacharias Institute.
