Hank Hanegraaff, also known as the “Bible Answer Man,” revealed how God “supernaturally” saved him during a recent brush with death amid his ongoing battle with cancer, allowing him to see his 69th birthday.
In a video post on July 17, the host of the nationally syndicated Bible Answer Man radio broadcast announced that he recently underwent allogeneic stem cell transplantation — a potentially curative treatment for mantle cell lymphoma. And the surgery was “successful.”
During his 40-day hospital stay, the radio host said he had the “time for reflection and thought of what it is that God has for me to do in the remaining years of my life.”
“And I do believe God’s going to give me many more years,” he said. “I don’t want to be presumptive, but I almost died … I had passed out, I had gone unconscious. And the time in ICU is just a blur. I remember little bits and pieces of it, but when my kids and my wife told me about what I went through in the ICU, it was like they were talking about a different person.”
Hanegraaff revealed that if it weren’t for his son, David, visiting at exactly the right time at the hospital, he wouldn’t be alive today.
“He’s the one that saw that all of a sudden my speech was incoherent and then I went unconscious and got the nurses in and got me into ICU. And that was a close brush with death,” he shared. “I’m still feeling a lot of the effects of that.”
The president and chairman of the Christian Research Institute revealed that during that time, he “came within a whisper of being in the presence of the Lord.”
