A Letter from John & Darlene Ankerberg

Picture yourself on a lonely country road at 2 or 3 o’clock at night.

As you look up at the sky you see a spectacular display of stars covering the heavens. They are beautiful.

You know that there are many planets among those stars and can’t help wondering, are we alone in the universe? Or is there alien life somewhere out there?

Scientists believe there are about two trillion planets in the universe and two hundred billion trillion stars.

When the Pew Research Center asked Americans do you believe we are alone in this universe, about two-thirds or (65%) said they believed that intelligent life exists on other planets. And 76% of those under age 30 agreed with them.

Other polls show that 41% of Americans believe UFOs (unidentified flying objects) are evidence that alien life from other planets have come to earth. Moreover, 16% of people claim firsthand sightings of UFOs. Even fighter pilots and pilots of commercial aircraft have reported UFOs flying next to them and watched as they would suddenly fly ahead and then quickly go straight up in the sky. Such maneuvers defy the laws of physics. There have been millions of reports of UFO phenomena from people in nations around the world.

In addition, reports started accumulating of human contact with these alien beings, including reports of alien
abductions. For national security reasons, the United States government became interested in the UFO phenomena in the early 1940s.

Today, Congress and high-profile Pentagon officials are conducting hearings on UFOs. In 2020 they changed the
official name of UFOs to UAPs, or Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena, so they could document unidentified craft
maneuvering in the air, space, or in the sea.

As followers of Christ, how do we make sense of the potential presence of extraterrestrial life in our world? Do UFO phenomena challenge the foundations of biblical teaching? Or might UFO phenomena serve as one of the most
compelling proofs that a biblical understanding of reality is indeed accurate?

We have called our TV series, “UFOs and Alien Abductions.” My guest will be astronomer Dr. Hugh Ross. His
programs will start after our series with Morgan Jackson about Audio Bibles.

Concerning Audio Bibles, let me say a big thank you to you for your gifts to provide Audio Bibles. We are now reaching 17,264,923 people with Audio Bibles in 83 countries, speaking 253 languages. According to the folks at Faith Comes By Hearing, half of those people, or 8,632,481 people have accepted Christ as their Savior. We praise the Lord!

After our series about Audio Bibles, we will air our new series on UFOs, then I will be interviewing Joni Lamb from the Daystar Network, and then Anne Graham Lotz on Revelation.

                                 Till the whole world hears,

                                   John and Darlene
