More About Chuck Missler
As a young man, Chuck Missler's 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.
Chuck Missler currently resides in Coeur D'Alene, in the state of Idaho.

Must Have; Don't Even Hesitate! Oct 11, 2001
Great tape; great topical instruction. One of the best tapes a Christian can buy. Every Christian should learn about faith and commitment from the Moabitess (gentile) Ruth. One of my very few favorites. I have given 1-2 dozens of these tapes for my friends.
If you are a new Christian you should get this. This book ranks up with John, Genesis and Revelation (Revelation is a great book not because of its prophecies, but because of its 340+ references from the Old Testament).
One of the key Old Testament books that details the Levitical legal requirements for a "kinsman redeemer. Ruth is a beautiful literary work with critical concepts and prophecies for the Jew and Christian alike. Also, teaches the laws for gleaning, the Leverite marriage, and other Jewish customs. Ruth is a powerful four (short) chapter book that also prophecies King David's birth in Bethlehem.
It also demonstrates (indirectly) how suffering can have great purpose.
Naomi leaves Israel for Moab penniless and in her land (inheritance) in debt with her husband during a severe drought. Her two sons marry Moabitess and then die. When Naomi's husband dies she returns to Israel. Ruth perseveres and returns with Naomi, committing to love and worship Naomi's God. While gleaning, she happens on Boaz's land where he becomes interested in her - he had heard many good things about Ruth's faithfulness and commitment to Naomi. Naomi learns this and teaches Ruth the Jewish customs and laws and how to act for Boaz in order for Naomi to redeem her land, and therefore care for both of them. Boaz falls in love with Ruth and redeems Naomi's land, marries Ruth and is given a prophecy after the birth of his firstborn.
Missler carefully instructs the listener in the subtle details that are missed when we casually read this book. Also, there are several passages that confound us, including Ruth's request for Boaz to "put his skirt over her"; the point that she is on the threshing floor with him when she makes this request; as well as the bizarre prophecies 1) "may you be famous in Bethlehem" and 2) "may your house be like Perez" (Gen 38:6-29). He also teaches us why this book is so valuable to Christians and Jews alike because of its call for faithfulness for grace and redemption.
Chuck Missler's Tape Studies:
I listen to Missler (and Dr. Fructenbaum's) tapes when driving in my car. They have greatly helped me extend my personal studies and spiritual growth while persevering under exceptionally arduous personal circumstances. (I will always have a special place in my heart for Missler's K-House because of the beautiful prayer one of his staff said with me just before I had to take my daughter off life support to end her life - you can read my daughter, Rebecca's story at littlestangel.com by going to the "Questions" page and clicking on the icon).
Missler is great because he provides well-researched biblical studies while pushing the listener / reader into a wider realm with some well-identified, but reasonably founded speculations. Many times the listener won't agree with these speculations, but they are good for some spiritual and argumentative exercises. He fully discloses his references when he is on firm ground, as well as clearly states when he is venturing into speculative territory.
The only negative is that I have the first version with the original notes. These notes are more sparse than the notes in Missler's more recent tape studies. But, the notes are deep enough and have the required bibliography. The more recent tape set may (or, may not) have updated notes - I don't know.
Regardless, this is absolutely a must have tape set for every Christian.
Inspired and Insightful Mar 12, 2001
My faith was profoundly encouraged with this tape. You come away feeling excited to get into the Bible and search down all the correlative scriptures mentioned. I enjoyed grasping the symbolism of Ruth, the gentile Moabite, redeemed by Boaz. Boaz serving as an archetype for Christ, our Redeemer. This is a love story we should all come to understand. Many thanks to Chuck Missler for the intelligent way he is able to communicate what he understands to be God's truth.
