You have probably heard the news already. Jack Chick, about whose work we’ve often posted, has died. He was 92. Other than Wikipedia, which mentions the date of Chick’s death (23 October 2016), there are no reliable sources of news yet, but when we find some, we’ll mention them.
According to Wikipedia:
Chick’s views have been spread worldwide, mostly through the tracts and now online. His company, Chick Publications, says it has sold over 750 million tracts, comics tracts and comic books, videos, books, and posters designed to promote Evangelical Protestantism from a Christian fundamentalist perspective or point of view. They have been translated into more than 100 languages. As evidenced from his writings and publications, Chick is an Independent Baptist who followed a premillennial dispensationalist view of the end times. He is a believer in the King James Only movement, which posits that every English translation of the Bible more recent than 1611 promotes heresy or immorality.
Verily, a man with strong beliefs. We’ve been critical of Chick, but this is not the time for that, so we’re asking you, dear reader, to be moderate in your comments.
