More About Hank Hanegraaff
Hendrik (Hank) Hanegraaff serves as president and chairman of the board of the North Carolina-based CHRISTIAN RESEARCH INSTITUTE. He is also host of the nationally syndicated Bible Answer Man radio broadcast, which is heard daily across the United States and Canada—and around the world via the Internet at www.equip.org.
Widely regarded as one of the world’s leading Christian authors and apologists, Hank 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, Hank equips Christians to read the Bible for all it’s worth, answers questions on the basis of careful research and sound reasoning, and interviews today’s most significant leaders, apologists, and thinkers.
Hank is the author of more than twenty books, which have cumulatively sold millions of copies. Christianity in Crisis and Resurrection each won the Gold Medallion for Excellence in Christian Literature awarded by the Evangelical Christian Publisher’s Association (ECPA); and Counterfeit Revival and The FACE that Demonstrates the Farce of Evolution each won ECPA’s Silver Medallion—the latter published in the condensed Fatal Flaws: What Evolutionists Don’t Want You to Know.
Other noteworthy volumes include The Prayer of Jesus, which rose to number one on the Christian Marketplace Bestseller list October 2002, and the popular Complete Bible Answer Book—Collector’s Edition, which clearly and concisely answers common questions regarding Christianity, culture, and cults, while tackling complex 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?”
Through his ground-breaking The Apocalypse Code: What the Bible Really Teaches about the End Times and Why It Matters Today, as well as his historical fiction works The Last Disciple Series and Fuse of Armageddon, Hank exposes the dangers of both Christian and secular Zionism. And in Has God Spoken? he provides memorable proofs for the Bible’s divine inspiration.
Additional works include The Legacy Study Bible, The Covering: God’s Plan to Protect You from Evil, The Creation Answer Book, and the forthcoming novel The Last Temple.
He is a regular contributor to the award-winning CHRISTIAN RESEARCH JOURNAL and an articulate communicator on the pressing issues of our day, having spoken in leading churches, conferences, and on college campuses throughout the world (most recently at the University of Tehran, Iran).
Hank and his wife, Kathy, live in Charlotte, North Carolina, and are parents to twelve children.
Hank Hanegraaff currently resides in the state of California.
Reviews - What do customers think about Resurrection?
Good, but could use more detail Nov 15, 2006
This book is very good as an introductory-level book but could use quite a bit more detail. I felt like the book had just started to scratch the surface of what could be said about each topic before moving on to another subject. I think that this book is probably meant to be simply an introduction to the topics, so I guess I probably shouldn't criticize a horse for not flying. I still wish that it hadn't been so brief though. This book is a lot shorter than it actually seems, because the appendixes take up so much space. The appendixes were too long and I didn't find them to be all that valuable; I wish that the author had used this space to expand on a lot of the ideas presented in the text instead.
I liked the format of this book. I'm not aware of too many books that approach resurrection from this angle. I liked the approach of first giving evidence for Jesus' physical death and Resurrection and using that as a jumping off point to talk about our physical resurrection. He made some good connections there I think.
He also made some good comments on heaven, answering common questions and dispelling some misconceptions along the way, such as "if heaven is perfect, won't it be boring?" Hanegraaff shows that this is based on a faulty assumption about Heaven.
This book is relatively brief but a worthwhile read I think. I would recommend reading this book along with Randy Alcorn's book "Heaven." They go together very well.
Hank shows his gullibility Jun 12, 2006
He accepts at face value stories in the NT about the empty tomb and reappearances of Jesus after his death. He does not consider that none of the gospels were written by people who were the contemporaries of Jesus nor the effect of charismatic personalities upon the beliefs of the early Church. Prophets in our time have had their prophecies falsified by events not occurring which they predicted. Yet most of their followers continue to believe. Something that Jesus predicted---his coming again in glory within the lifetimes of some of those who saw him before his death---manifestly did not happen. And that does not daunt the faithful at all.
A useful study of how religions adapt to failed prophecies is Diana Tumminia, When Prophecy Never Fails, Oxford UP. Robin Lane Fox, Truth and Fiction in the Bible is a book by an eminent historian, but perhaps not for readers who prefer faith (the evidence of things not seen) to reasoning and evidence. Books by J D Crossan and Marcus Borg are also valuable.
Resurrection: The Blessed Hope Feb 18, 2005
I have read this book years ago and it's a great resource for Christians to have. As Hank is great at doing, writing to the new believers in Christ, in a easy and cogent way. This book is a great book on one of the best historical event in history. The resurrection is the hope of every believer and we should be able to defend it and know what are hope is.
Interesting Jul 27, 2002
I would've given it 4.5 for being a little dry sometimes but I couldn't. So I rounded up :D.
JESUS' RESURRECTION IS PROOF OF OUR OWN RISING Jan 29, 2002
Hank Hanegraaff has done an outstanding service to saints,seekers skeptics,scholars and sinners alike with this powerful book. It joins those by C.S.Lewis,Josh McDowell,John MacArthur,Francis Schaeffer,Henry Morris,D.James Kennedy and others as a definitive apologetic work to persuade those open to historical evidence of the fact of the Resurrection of Jesus from the dead.
Almighty God has set a day when He will Judge the planet by the Man He has chosen, Jesus Christ, the Son of God. He has given proof of this to all men by the resurrection of Jesus from the dead.
No historical event of ancient times is more documented or attested to by impartial,accurate,undeniable,voluminous,overwhelming evidence as Jesus' rising from the dead in Jerusalem and appearing to hundreds of eyewitnesses over a period of 40 days.
Of course there is still an element of faith involved in accepting the Bible's eyewitness testimony about Easter. We have not proof beyond a shadow of a doubt, but what satisfies even a court of law: beyond a reasonable doubt after a preponderance of the evidence. Evidence that demands a verdict from every person on the face of planet Earth.
The only way to know for sure if this book is true is to wait until Judgment Day and see if you yourself are resurrected to meet Him. Until then, this is the next best thing to the Bible itself to have confidence that Jesus is Alive and is getting ready to return for the Last Time.
Are you ready?
Jesus said to (doubting)Thomas,"Reach your finger here and look at My (nail-pierced) hands; and reach your hand here and put it into My (spear-pierced) side. Do not be unbelieving, but believing." Thomas answered Him, "My Lord and My God!" Jesus replied, "Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed." (John 20:27-29)
