With eighteen million copies of his books in print in more than fifty languages, John Blanchard is undoubtedly the UK’s most popular contemporary defender of the Christian faith. His clear grasp of current issues and his sharp mind and wit, are enhanced by an immaculate ability with words. John’s insatiable appetite for work and travel have led him into almost every corner of the United Kingdom and across large swathes of the United States, South Africa and elsewhere, covering over a million miles. Above all, John combines his significant achievements with the passion of an evangelist whose preaching and writing have led thousands to faith in Christ for the glory of God—and that is his greatest ambition of all.
