On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank comments on the Oxford Dictionaries word of the year for 2016, “post-truth.” According to Oxford Dictionaries the word post-truth is an adjective that relates to circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief. All of this begs the question: what is truth? Or, why is truth important? When standing before Jesus, Pontius Pilate asked this same question. Pilate stood toe to toe with the very personification of truth and yet missed its reality. Much like Pilate, postmodern people today miss the truth as well. Unfortunately, the death of truth spells the death of civilization. We must remember, however, that truth is true even if everyone denies it, and a lie is a lie even if everyone affirms it.
Hank answers the following questions:
-Who said Jesus was born on December 25th? Where does the Bible says this? -As a member of the ELCA I am troubled by their stance on biblical inerrancy; is this an essential or non-essential issue? -What is your opinion of Paul’s thorn in the flesh? What does Paul mean when he says he pleaded with the Lord to remove it? -Why did God give angels free will? -Do you know of any teaching that connects the “I AM” sayings of Jesus with the tabernacle? -Are we breaking the fourth commandment by worshipping on Sunday? -If God is omnipresent, how can hell be separation from the presence of God? -Wouldn’t the Antichrist have to line up with Old Testament prophecy?

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.
