Sam Raju’s RZIM biography:

Sam Raju is a Speaker and Trainer with RZIM Life Focus Society. Sam holds a Masters in Psychology with Highest Honors from Mahatma Gandhi University, Kerala, following which he enrolled for pre-doctoral studies in Rehabilitation Psychology with the hopes of pursuing a doctorate in Neuropsychology. However, his growing interest in apologetics led him to secure a Masters in Philosophy with Honors at the reputed Biola University, USA.
