More About the Author


About the founders, Chuck and Nancy Missler


Chuck and Nancy Missler were both raised in Southern California.

Chuck demonstrated an aptitude for technical interests as a youth. He became a ham radio operator at age nine and started piloting airplanes as a teenager. While still in high school, Chuck built a digital computer in the family garage.

His plans to pursue a doctorate in electrical engineering at Stanford University were interrupted when he received a Congressional appointment to the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis. Graduating with honors, Chuck took his commission in the Air Force. After completing flight training, he met and married Nancy. Chuck joined the Missile Program and eventually became Branch Chief of the Department of Guided Missiles.

Chuck made the transition from the military to the private sector when he became a systems engineer with TRW, a large aerospace firm. He then went on to serve as a senior analyst with a non-profit think tank where he conducted projects for the intelligence community and the Department of Defense. During that time, Chuck earned a master's degree in engineering at UCLA, supplementing previous graduate work in applied mathematics, advanced statistics and information sciences.

Recruited into senior management at the Ford Motor Company in Dearborn, Michigan, Chuck established the first international computer network in 1966. He left Ford to start his own company, a computer network firm that was subsequently acquired by Automatic Data Processing (listed on the New York Stock Exchange) to become its Network Services Division.

Returning to California, Chuck found himself consulting, organizing corporate development deals, serving on the board of directors at several firms, and specializing in the rescuing of financially troubled technology companies. He brought several companies out of Chapter 11 and into profitable operation. Chuck thrived on this type of work.

As Chuck notes, his day of reckoning came several years ago when -- as the result of a merger -- he found himself the chairman and a major shareholder of a small, publicly owned development company known as Phoenix Group International. The firm established an $8 billion joint venture with the Soviet Union to supply personal computers to their 143,000 schools. Due to several unforeseen circumstances, the venture failed. The Misslers lost everything, including their home, automobiles and insurance.

It was during this difficult time that Chuck turned to God and the Bible. As a child he developed an intense interest in the Bible; studying it became a favorite pastime. In the 1970s, while still in the corporate world, Chuck began leading weekly Bible studies at the 30,000-member Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, in California. He and Nancy established Koinonia House in 1973.

Chuck had enjoyed a longtime, personal relationship with Hal Lindsey, who upon hearing of Chuck's professional misfortune, convinced him that he could easily succeed as an independent author and speaker. Over the years, Chuck had developed a loyal following. (Through Doug Wetmore, head of the tape ministry of Firefighters for Christ, Chuck learned that over 7 million copies of his taped Bible studies were scattered throughout the world.) Koinonia House then became Chuck's full-time profession.

Nancy Missler attended UCLA where she studied art. She met Chuck on a blind date in 1956 and they married the following year. Through Christian author and speaker Henrietta Mears, Nancy became a Christian, and she devoted herself to her family, raising the Misslers' four children, Chip, Mark, Lisa and Michelle.. Nancy also established a company, Missler Aerial Photography Service, that specialized in aerial and architectural photography.

After almost 20 years of marriage they appeared on the outside to have it all: challenging careers, beautiful home and many of the trappings of an extremely successful lifestyle. Despite their strong commitment to Christ, their marriage was falling apart. Nothing seemed to work and they appeared destined for divorce.

But, before such a drastic action, Nancy began to search the Scriptures for the answers to her broken heart. As she started practicing what the Lord revealed, a sequence of events began that revolutionized their marriage! Her studies have continued over 20 years as the Lord has revealed hundreds of Scriptures to guide and direct her steps.

Her first book, Why Should I be The First To Change? describes the miracle of her healed marriage. She followed this with The King's High Way Trilogy: The Way of Agape, Be Ye Transformed and Faith in the Night Seasons. These are study courses that teach the practical application of how to love as God desires; how to renew our minds so we can be transformed into His image; and, how to experience unshakeable faith so we can enjoy intimacy with Him.

More than 400,000 copies of Nancy's books have been sold to date. She has spoken to women's groups throughout the United States as well as Europe, Australia, Israel, Thailand and New Zealand. She has appeared many times on national television and given hundreds of radio interviews.

Nancy and Chuck now travel and teach through their ministry, Koinonia House, and they remain dedicated to create, develop and distribute materials which stimulate, encourage and facilitate serious study of the Bible as the inerrant Word of God.

Very informative book.
Enthusiastic Artist
The book is rich in highly technical syntax (i.e. the type of terms used, wording).

I will be reading it again, and expect to go back to certain spots and reread.

Format: Hardcover
Chuck Missler's latest book is a masterpiece and is a must read for those people who want to cut through the chaff on whether the Bible is God breathed or just a collection of fables. Chuck does a marvelous job in providing background on the use of "secret codes" and discusses such things as cryptography and the different types of codes and ciphers used by man. He then takes the reader through the evidences of the hidden design of the Bible. One example of this is that God had already laid out His plan of redemption for the predicament of mankind as found in the genealogy from Adam through Noah in the earliest chapters of the Book of Genesis. From the Hebrew the names in English signify as follows. Adam=Man, Seth=Appointed, Enosh=Mortal, Kenan=Sorrow, Mahalalel=The Blessed God, Jared=Shall come down, Enoch=Teaching, Methuselah=His death shall bring, Lamech=The despairing, Noah=rest, or comfort. Put this together and you have the following: "Man (is) appointed mortal sorrow, (but) the Blessed God shall come down teaching (that) His death shall bring (the) despairing rest". It is the beginning of a "love story, ultimately written in blood on a wooden cross which was erected in Judea almost 2000 years ago". WOW! Chuck goes on by touching on subjects ranging from the heptadic structure (7's) found throughout the Bible, to "microcodes", including the mechanics of the Hebrew alphabet and spends only 3 chapters on equidistant letter sequences. The section on "macrocodes" is my favorite. Chuck goes into detail outlining "types" such as Abraham's offering up of his only son (son of promise) Isaac on Mt. Moriah as a model or "type" of God offering up His only Son on Mt. Moriah for the sins of the world.Read more ›

Chuck Missler's careful detail within his books tend to make his writing difficult to keep up with. Cosmic Codes is an exception. His chapters are broken up into headings that allow the reader to take a breath or to chew like the intellectual cows we tend to become. Cosmic Codes is not for the faint of thought, you have to be ready to think; to think beyond time, space and our predefined view of reality. Cosmic Codes also puts the "Bible Code" in its proper place. They do exist, you cannot escape the math on the odds, but Missler puts the evidence in its proper perspective. There are some errors here and there. For example, Rambsel notes the absence of Judas from the Isaiah 53 ELS findings. I have since found it within the text. However, considering the topic and the vast amount of cross-referencing, it is brilliant, albiet imperfect; Like Chuck himself. When reading Cosmic Codes, as with all other works by Chuck Missler, start by reading Acts 17:11 in the Bible; it is his caveat.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Buy this book, if you want to be truly amazed and inspired by a scientific, technical approach to the Bible and hidden codes. You'll quickly find this is highly detailed, well-established research, not glossy History Channel 1-hour "billions and billions of years" crap. Bring a knife and fork, because this is meat and potatos reading.

Surprisingly, Missler will be the first to tell you to 'study this on your own, don't just believe me', setting himself immediately apart from almost every other 'brilliant' mind that demands you simply trust in what they say is 'truth' or 'fact'. I openly say I was also a skeptic, I mean, hidden codes in the Bible? What's the point?

But that's why I haven't invented anything amazing, etc., because I just go with the flow. For most things, I'd rather enjoy the benefits of someone else's work, right?

Still, I am highly curious about almost everything, always have been, and Missler is highly intelligent, a veteran of high-level US Government employment, and his writing style reflects his 'rocket scientist' mindset. I've listened to Chuck Missler's talks, etc., for many years, and he puts most so-called scientists to shame, and always without an ounce of pride in his own achievements.

Getting into the book, over and over I continued to stop and say 'No way!', yet the amazement simply does not stop. Each page you turn opens new information you've never seen before. This is a fairly large book, and I finished it in a few days, just did not want to stop reading!

Cosmic Codes begins with a long introduction to cryptology, in outstanding detail.

Format: Hardcover
"Cosmic Codes" by Chuck Missler, helps confirm ones beliefs, not through faith alone, but through the complexity of design in the form of messages through symbolism and ciphertext, which our LORD has so diligently placed within HIS written word "The Bible". Chuck Missler takes you through an overview of these messages, systematically placed by JESUS CHRIST; to authenticate HIS word as HE proclaimed it. For those who consider the "Bible" as just another storybook, prepare to throw that view right out the window. I recommend that you hold on to your "brown britches" (Lord Nelson pun), for HIS coming is surely on the horizon. In reading "Cosmic Codes" one can enjoy the work of a man who has dedicated himself to proclaiming that love declared by our LORD, to all those who would listen. The choice to hear that message of love is now up to you!
