About This Week's Series
Millions of people have claimed to have near-death experiences. What evidence exists to support the accuracy of these experiences? How do near-death experiences connect with our Christian beliefs? In our three-program series with Dr. Gary Habermas, he reveals stories and statistics related to this intriguing debate. Based on documented scientific studies, the evidence increasingly points to “something” that takes place beyond our physical realm. These experiences point to a spiritual realm, offering an additional area of credibility to support the existence of God and the afterlife.
Dr. Ankerberg never set out to launch the world’s most-watched Christian apologetics television program...
As a speaker and evangelist, Dr. Ankerberg spoke on university campuses, at churches, conferences, and other events. While speaking at a Youth for Christ summer camp, he was first asked to host a Kansas City Christian television program. Structuring the program with a debate-format, the show quickly caught the attention of other networks. After moving to Chattanooga, Tennessee to serve another media ministry, The John Ankerberg Show was picked up on CBN, a new network that soon expanded nationwide. Within a short time, Dr. Ankerberg’s side project quickly became a full-time ministry in 1980, renting office space and studio time to produce additional programs.
