Dr. John Blanchard
Excerpt from "First Things" Vol. LXVI No. 14, April 3, 2016
We are delighted to have the internationally known apologist, John Blanchard, visit us next Wednesday at the Centerpoint hour. He will give a lecture entitled, “Truth for Life.” He has written more than 30 books, including evangelistic titles such a Right with God and Ultimate Questions. The latter has sold more than 14 million copies in more than 60 languages. Other books he has written include: Whatever Happened to Hell, Meet the Real Jesus, The Beatitudes for Today, Major Points from the Minor Prophets, The Hitch-hiker's Guide to Heaven, Has Science Got Rid of God?, and Evolution: Fact or Fiction?
In 1962 Dr. Blanchard began his full-time preaching ministry as an evangelist of the National Young Life Campaign. In 1965 he accepted an invitation to join the staff of the Movement for World Evangelization in which his ministry widened throughout the United Kingdom and eventually took him to Europe and elsewhere. In 1980 John Blanchard founded Christian Ministries under whose auspices his evangelistic and Bible teaching ministry took him to many countries all around the world. In particular, he has paid numerous visits to the United States, where up to the present time he has conducted some 400 evangelistic missions and Bible teaching conventions.
An octogenarian, Dr. Blanchard resides in Surrey, England.
