UFOs and Alien Abductions

featuring Hugh Ross

About This Week's Series

This series UFOs and Alien Abductions, features Dr. Hugh Ross, who became a professional astronomer after being an amateur astronomer. He developed a fascination with astronomy and physics when he was seven years old, and he read four or five books on astronomy and physics every week. He built his own telescope by collecting beer bottles and saving money for a telescope mirror. At 16, the astronomy club in Vancouver made him the director of observations because of his knowledge. He identified many unidentified flying objects due to his familiarity with the night skies. As an undergraduate at the University of British Columbia, professors gave him all the UFO reports they received because he understood the night sky.

Although Dr. Ross did not set out to be an expert in the field of UFOs, he has spent much of his life studying this topic. Dr. Ankerberg and Dr. Ross will discuss various topics in this field and share how this relates to the Bible and what we believe as Christians.

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.
