Ankerberg Monthly Letter August 2015

By now you have probably heard the news of what happened in our city of Chattanooga, Tennessee where a young Muslim man murdered five military men. The first shooting occurred just over a mile from our office. We are heartbroken for the families who lost their loved ones and express our sympathies to them. These…

Ankerberg Monthly Letter July 2015

Part of the challenge of getting Americans to think about God is that they’ve become so used to God that they take Him for granted. But what are the implications if God did not exist? One of our guests we will be interviewing later this summer is philosopher Dr. William Lane Craig. He has written,…

Ankerberg Monthly Letter June 2015

God has amazed us through His works in the past month. Emotionally we shifted from the depths of discouragement to the heights of God’s blessing and protection. Over the last three weeks we have flown from Chattanooga, to Seattle, Los Angeles, to Bakersfield, back to Los Angeles for meetings and home to Chattanooga. Two days…

Ankerberg Monthly Letter May 2015

When you see reports of Islamic terrorism on the evening news or in the headlines of the papers, do you feel like you are getting the whole story? Do you think things are getting better or worse around the world? 210,060 people have died in Syria in the last 3 years. Last year, over 17,073…

Ankerberg Monthly Letter April 2015

This month I have some serious decisions to make here at the ministry, and I’d like to ask for your input. You know that in Mark 16 Jesus commanded us to: “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” In Matthew 28 Jesus said, “Go therefore and make disciples of all…

Last September I traveled to India and met with pastors at a Media Summit in Mumbai. One of the pastors who attended that conference sent me a letter last week with photos of Christians in his church who were being persecuted for their faith. One photo showed a dead man lying face down in the…

As I write this letter to you, I feel a bit like FOX News conveying BREAKING NEWS!  Of course, the reason we have any news to convey is because God is working all around us. He is giving us His favor and is arranging new opportunities for us to present and defend the gospel. You…

Will Jesus come back at any moment? This is one of the most important issues a person can answer. If Jesus could return for His people at any time, then wouldn’t there be numerous implications for how we are to live now? And wouldn’t this include how we respond to God, as well as to…

When you receive this letter Darlene and I will probably be in Mumbai, India (formerly Bombay). What happened? I accepted an invitation to speak at a Christian Media Convention there on September 3-5. I certainly did not anticipate flying to India, but believe God opened a unique opportunity for us that was too important to…

Ankerberg Monthly Letter August 2014

This summer has been a time of important developments at The John Ankerberg Show. Now with resources in 12 languages, we are discovering new opportunities to begin airing our television programs in even more languages around the world. Our original plan was to make our programs available in the top languages of the world for…

Ankerberg Monthly Letter July 2014

I have waited a long time to share with you the amazing Messianic prophecies God has given us in Scripture. One day I realized God had placed before us in the Old Testament His own case for who the Messiah would be. He did this by giving specific prophecies over 2,000 years to the Jewish…

Ankerberg Monthly Letter June 2014

The greatest objection to Christianity in today’s world is the alleged contradiction between science and the Bible. Modern evolutionary theory has long taught as fact that all forms of life evolved over long periods of time through random selection. However, the Bible speaks of six creation days during which all creative activity took place. But…

Ankerberg Monthly Letter May 2014

Almost all of us know someone who has rejected the Christian faith because of science. This month on television we will use the latest scientific evidence to reach people for Christ and hope to strengthen your faith in God as well. Did you know that modern science has discovered the universe had a beginning? Astronomer…

God continues to lead us into new opportunities to reach people across the world with the Gospel. Here is the latest news. First, thank you for your past gifts.

When will Jesus return? Answers range from those who argue Christ will never return to those who set exact dates for His coming. What does the Bible teach? To answer, I’ve invited two of our world’s top scholars and experts on Bible prophecy. My first guest in this month’s series is Dr. Renald Showers. He…

Never before in history has there been an opportunity to change the world in a more significant way than there is today. Cisco Systems reports that, “By the end of this year there could be more smartphones on the planet than humans, and by 2016 there could be 10 billion smartphones.” Because you have supported…

In March we learned of a Christian company that specializes in accurate, high-speed translation of languages—for books and articles, for audio tracks of radio and television programs, and for instant translation of conversations over the phone. Shortly after this development, God provided the funds (through a few special ministry friends) to make it possible for…

Ankerberg Monthly Letter July 2013

This month on television, I want to address some of the hardest questions about when Christians suffer. Whether tornadoes in Oklahoma, wildfires in Colorado, or struggles in our personal lives, we wonder why God allows suffering and how we are to handle it. As Christians, we know we are not immune to these problems. Many…

Ankerberg Monthly Letter June 2013

I have exciting news to tell you. God has guided and provided for our ministry in some amazing ways this month. Because many of you have given generous gifts, you have enabled us to begin reaching out to the world in new ways.   Our staff has now started work to prepare our website for…

Ankerberg Monthly Letter May 2013

I hope you’ve enjoyed the eye-opening programs we have recently aired called “Trapped Behind the Veil of Islam.” Its analysis regarding the treatment of women in Islam serves to spark urgency among Christians to both share the Gospel with Muslims as well as to speak out regarding the many abuses of human rights toward women…

Ankerberg Monthly Letter April 2013

Last month I had the opportunity to attend the National Religious Broadcasters Convention (NRB) in Nashville. While there I met numerous international broadcasters who desire to air our programs in Spanish, Romanian, Arabic, Russian, Mandarin Chinese, and other languages. How did they know about our program? Four years ago God opened the door for us…

Ankerberg Monthly Letter March 2013

Our current television series features two former Muslims and reveals, “Why Sharia Law Threatens Freedom and Basic Human Rights.” It is an eye opener. Since 1980 Muslim countries have been returning to a more radical form of Islam, the Islam Muhammad practiced in the seventh century. No moderate form of Islam is emerging anywhere. This…

This month on television we are going to present the facts about “Why Sharia Law Threatens Freedom and Human Rights” and talk about the plight of women who are “Trapped Behind the Veil of Islam.” Why? Because we need to understand what fellow Christians are experiencing in many nations, and how to reach Muslims who…

This month on television we are going to talk about the wonders of Heaven. If you have ever planned a trip to Disneyland, skiing in Aspen, or a trip to Europe, you usually look at the brochures and websites to find out in advance what it will be like. Such information excites us about going…
