More About the Author

Hank Hanegraaff serves as president and chairman of the board of the North Carolina-based Christian Research Institute International. He is also host of "The Bible Answer Man" radio program, which is broadcast daily across the United States and Canada as well as around the world through the Internet at

Widely considered to be one of the world's leading Christian apologists, Hanegraaff is deeply committed to equipping Christians to be so familiar with truth that when counterfeits loom on the horizon, they recognize them instantaneously.

Through his live call-in radio broadcast, Hanegraaff equips Christians to read the Bible for all it's worth and answers questions on the basis of careful research and sound reasoning. Additionally, Hanegraaff regularly interviews today's most significant leaders, apologists, and thinkers.

Hanegraaff is the author of award-winning best sellers, including "The Prayer of Jesus," "Christianity in Crisis," and "Resurrection," the latter providing a stirring and persuasive defense of the central event in Christianity. "Resurrection" and "Christianity in Crisis" both won the Gold Medallion for excellence in Christian literature awarded by the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association. Hanegraaff's books "Counterfeit Revival" and "The FACE that Demonstrates the Farce of Evolution" each won the Silver Medallion. "The Prayer of Jesus" was honored as a top 10 best-selling nonfiction book in both 2001 and 2002 by the Christian Booksellers Association, while the small-group video presentation "The Prayer of Jesus EZ Lesson Plan" taught by Hanegraaff won a Telly Award in 2003.

Recent releases include "The Apocalypse Code: Find Out What the Bible REALLY Says about the End Times . . . And Why It Matters Today"; "The Legacy Study Bible"; "The Bible Answer Book, Volume 1," which answers common questions regarding Christianity, culture, and cults; and "The Bible Answer Book, Volume 2," in which he tackles tough questions, including "How can Christians legitimize a God who orders the genocide of entire nations?" and "How could the Bible command a rape victim to marry her rapist?"

He is also coauthor of the novel "Fuse of Armageddon"; The Last Disciple fiction trilogy ("The Last Disciple," "The Last Sacrifice," and, forthcoming, "The Last Temple"); "The Da Vinci Code: Fact or Fiction?"; and "Seven Questions of a Promise Keeper."

Other works include "The Covering: God's Plan to Protect You from Evil"; "The Third Day"; "Fatal Flaws: What Evolutionists Don't Want You to Know"; and "The Millennium Bug Debugged."

Hanegraaff is a regular contributor to "Christian Research Journal" and "The Plain Truth" magazine. A popular conference speaker, he addresses churches, schools, and businesses worldwide. He is frequently invited to appear on national media programs to discuss a wide range of issues.

Hanegraaff and his wife, Kathy, live in North Carolina and are the parents of nine children--Michelle; Katie; David; John Mark; Hank, Jr.; Christina; Paul; Faith; and baby Grace--and the grandparents of five.

Format: Paperback
It seems from most of the previous reviews that the readers either love Hank Hanegraff or despise him. How strange. It seems that most of the negative reviews were actually personal attacks on the author and not directed toward his subject. I did not see a single negative review presenting an actual instance in which Mr. Hanegraff "lied". It seems as if they simply stated, "He lied," and left it at that. I would question if any of these readers had, in fact, actually read this book.
All that aside I can honestly tell you that this is a work of fact and not fiction. I left the "faith movement" a number of years ago. I once held to the teachings of men like Copeland, Hagin, Hinn and others until I placed their teachings up against the plumbline of scripture. I found that their teachings simply were not square.
The truth hurts. In an age of "easy believism" I guess it's just easier for some people to live for experience, after experience, after experience. These teachers preach a gospel of prosperity, comfort and healing for all. Any one who has read the bible knows that this is "a different gospel". In 1990 a believer in the "faith movement" actually had the audacity to tell me that my brother died of colon cancer because my family did not have enough faith. A simple study of the character of God proves this statement to be false.
I don't need to listen to Mr. Hanegraff's tapes to know that what he said about these false teachers is true. I have heard them say it with my own ears. Mr. Hanegraff is not a liar.
To those who follow the "faith movement" and it's dangerous teachings I would remind you of this one thing: "If anyone would come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me." Matt. 16:24

....what contradicts their "faith".
To all the "out of context" reviewers, I suggest
that they listen to Mr Hannegraff's radio program
and then they get to hear the self same quotes from
the book out of the mouths of the charlatans and hucksters
themselves. They truly are a blight on modern Christianity
and Mr Hannegraff is to be commended for trying to show
their supporters just how bad these men really really are.
"Experts at removing money from the poor?". You betcha.
"Experts at removing money from the gullible?". Naturally.
The problem is that as timely as this book is, it is next to
impossibe to persuade a "Word Of Faith" believer that they
have been duped.
People feel foolish to admit having been fooled. So they
don't believe the evidence of their own eyes and ears.

Format: Paperback
It is unfortunate to read the negative reviews. It is obvious that most of these decieved readers are involved (or at least most of them) in this heretical movement that Hank uncovers. I was ordained by a Word of Faith Church and preached it's heresies for almost a decade. I can tell you now that this book is absolutely on target! It is well researched and documented. I've read the books and listened to the tapes of these false prophets. Hank Hanegraaff hasn't missed a beat!
It is so typical (and very un-Christ-like) of people who are involved in this very damnable heretical movement to become almost violent in words and action as you have noticed by many who have entered their less than favorable reviews. Such as the "so-called" theology professor who claims he has researched all of Hank's material and found them erroneous. You've been caught! This is definately not true.
Again, as a former licensed Word of Faith minister, this book is an absolute must! Buy it and see. Be sure to get the accompanying cassettes. They too are well documented and you can hear the startling and blasphemous babblings of these Word of Faith preachers first hand! There are no lies or misrepresentations in this award winning book and Hank Hanegraaff is supurb in both style and presentation.
If you love God, get this book. If you love your religion, then continue in your darkness!
God help those who are blind. Titus 1:10-16

15 of 16 people found the following review helpful By Huntress Reviews on February 10, 2003
Format: Paperback
In this in depth and insightful book, the popular "Bible Answer Man" exposes the lies told by popular allegedly Christian televangelists who are in fact only masking cultic heresies underneath their own twisted versions of Christianity. Each example is backed up by scripture and truth that is clearly well researched.
***** It is almost frightening as a horror novel to realize how so many popular "Christians" are in fact decieving the public, worldwide, in their "Praise the Lord and send me the money" tactics. It is clear that lives and souls, not to mention vast amounts of money have been lost to these people. With the help of books like this, hopefully more people will come to see the truth behind the multiple masks. *****

Format: Paperback
I can only describe this book as life changing. I live in an area of Kansas where we have a Word of Faith radio station that disguises itself behind a wall of modern Christian music. This book has helped me debate with the station over why a station that focuses towards youth would broadcast such dangerous messages.
To those who claim that this book takes quotes out of context, I ask that they research for themselves. Hanegraaff does an excellent job of documenting every quote. I've personally examined many only to find what he writes is dead on. I simply ask, if his quotes are out of context, why hasn't a single Faith teacher stepped up and said, "I never said that. Here's my book that states otherwise, and here's a tape of my sermon where I said otherwise." That's the funny thing about the truth. No matter who says it, it's still the truth.
I've read many reviews of this book where people claim that Hank writes it in an attacking, insulting form. Well duh! What else do you think people who disagree with Hank would say when he says, "you're wrong and here's why." Besides, how else is someone supposed to sound when the teachings of a movement are causing many to become poor, sick, dying, and spiritually frustrated?
I strongly support this book. To those who don't, put your biases aside long enough to examine the truth objectively.
