Jay Howard has been researching cults and the occult since 1975.  Jay has authored 2 books including his latest, Hard Questions for The Bible Answer Man.  It is a harsh critique of the current president of the Christian  Research Institute Hank Hanegraaff. Showing, among other things, how he unethically took over as president of the ministry after the death of the founder Walter Martin and lied to and used Martin’s widow in his quest for power.

 His studies include thousands of hours of witnessing to cultists and counseling with families. He has spoken and debated on college campuses as well as hosting his own radio show, To Everyman An Answer. He is a graduate of North Central Bible College in Minneapolis, Minnesota and is the founder and director of The Religious Research Project. He has taught across the United States in over 30 denominations and has conducted seminars on 5 continents.

    I wanted to thank you so much for your eye-opening book, “Hard Questions for the Bible Answer Man.”

    For many, many years I was an avid listener of Hanegraaff’s radio show. I saw him speak on two occasions in different cities. And I read many of his books, until his “The Apocalypse Code” which was nothing more than a self-centered, egotistical, hypocritical, arrogant piece of slander.

    It wasn’t his position on becoming an extreme preterist that upset me. It’s his attitude that leaves me the impression that if you are not a preterist like him, you are at best an idiot, and at worse a cultist. When I used to listen to him, he would quote: “In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty, in all things, love.” He also emphasized 1 Peter 3:15. What happened, Hank? I Guess that stuff only applies to everyone else.

    The nerve of this guy is unbelievable. He takes over CRI under questionable circumstances, fires the people he didn’t like, plagiarized Dr. D. James Kennedy, and writes a book about why he (as usual) and preterism are right and only right. Now he’s off to Iran – too bad he didn’t stay there. His “ministry” slogan: “Because Truth Matters,” would be more appropriately titled: “Because Narcissism Matters.”

    So sorry I was wrong about this guy – but so happy that “Because Truth REALLY Matters,” I found it out.

      Thank you for your response. I have heard from several former supporters of Hank who were equally shocked that this “hand picked successor”, has lead such an arrogant and sinful life while heading up what used to be a great ministry.
