ABOUT
THE
AUTHOR
WALTER MARTIN
was fondly and respectfully known as “the father of Christian cult
apologetics.” Many current professional and academic cult apologists credit him with their introduction
to the field. He held four earned degrees, having received his Doctorate
from California Coast
University in the field of Comparative Religions. Author of a dozen books, a half-dozen booklets, and
many articles, he was known nationwide as “The Bible Answer Man,” host of one of the oldest and
most popular nationally syndicated call-in radio programs. He was founder and director of the Christian
Research Institute, located in Southern California, which continues to provide cult apologetics
information and to sponsor the ever-popular
Bible Answer Man
daily broadcast.
