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 The Prayer of Jesus: Secrets of Real Intimacy with God?
Good exposition, but what of that word "now?" Jul 14, 2006
I wish this book hadn't been married to the Jabez fad, as that dooms it to fade away with the Jabez books, while Hanagraaf's book deserve to stick around for years and be re-printed.
But one question: the author makes much of the disciples' request "teach us NOW to pray" (as contrasted with the request of "teach us HOW to pray.") Um, what translation of Luke 11 (or else what text in any translation) has that NOW in there? I also looked at the Greek for both the textus receptus and the older manuscripts and don't find any hint of this. SO WHERE DID IT COME FROM? Please private message me if you can shed some light on this.
The Lord's Prayer -- a NEW way to pray May 13, 2006
Hank Hanegraaff presents the reader with phenomenal insights to the scriptural Lord's Prayer. I am leading a small group that is studying the Lord's Prayer, and we manage to spend 1.5 hrs discussing 4-5 pages of this book. I have been rereading this book for four months, and it has completely changed my prayer life. There are days that I never get farther than "Our Father..." This book is NOT denominational. Absolutely a must for all of us who feel we need growth in our prayer life.
nice little book Jul 19, 2005
Illustrates and rewords the lord's (or "our father") prayer. I assume the title is a play on The Prayer of Jabez that certain religious communities I know were really into recently. Anyway, a beautiful little book with sweet illustrations to remind kids it is not an empty incatation they are reciting but a real request for help and thanksgiving.
Short but Good Work on Prayer Apr 18, 2005
Hank Hanegraaff has been given the wrong impretion. Many think this book is an attack on Bruce Wilkerson's THE PRAYER OF JABEZ but in reality, Hanegraaff praises Wilkerson for helping people learn to pray in his forward. While he is critical in some places of some points that Wilkerson made, he does so in love and not in a harsh tone.
This book is a short work on prayer. There are other books that offer more biblical exegesis on prayer passages (see THE SPIRIT HELPS US PRAY) yet this is more of a devotional work on prayer. Hanegraaff takes the Lord's prayer (Matthew 6:5-13) and devotes chapters to each part of the Lord's prayer. He uses personal illustrations to teach his reader his points.
The only drawback I found to this book is that it is hard for me to seperate Hanegraaff from his normal office, apologetics. His books on apologetics are much better than this book on prayer. While I don't know Hanegraaff personally, I don't think of him as a "man of prayer." Not that he doesn't pray I simply mean I see him defending our faith while I see Jim Cymbala on his face before God in prayer. Thankfully, God wants every Christian to pray and so I enjoyed Hanegraaff's work on prayer and I recommend it.
A Sweet Book with Gold Nuggets for the Believer Jul 19, 2002
If you are looking for a scholarly study of the Lord's Prayer, this is not the book for you. This is a collection of folksy stories, tender insights, and pithy sayings. The vignettes are sweet and heart warming. The insights are clear and true. The sayings (I have highlighted them)are memorable.
But the book doesn't explore the grandeur, power, and fullness of the Lord's Prayer as I hoped. I ended up knowing more about Hank but not much more about Jesus.
But for the nuggets alone, it was worth the reading time: "The secret to prayer is secret prayer." and "At present we are sandwhiched between the triumph of the cross and the termination of time - between D-Day and V-Day." and "The tragedy is not in dying young, but in living large and never using your life for eternal significance."
These are precious gems and I appreciate the kindness, humility, and tenderness he expresses; that much at least, is certainly like Christ.
