Friday, April 5, 2013, Dave Hunt drew his final breath and entered into the presence of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. His beloved wife Ruth was at his side.


Born in 1926, David Charles Haddon Hunt enjoyed the advantages of a godly upbringing and placed his trust in Jesus Christ as his personal Savior and Lord in his early teens.

As a young man, he served in the military toward the end of World War II. Afterward, he attended UCLA and received a degree in mathematics. It was during that time that he met the love of his life, Ruth Klassen. In 1950, they were married, and since both loved the outdoors, they enjoyed a beautiful honeymoon hiking in the High Sierras—perfect for two young people madly in love and with very little money to their name. Marriage was soon followed by the birth of two sons and two daughters. Ruth was a busy mother and alsdave-hunt-woman-rides-the-beast-catholic-church-vaticano a gifted writer herself. She had a tremendous interest in and knowledge of history, a gift that would help Dave further down the road. Dave’s own career path led him into a position as a CPA/management consultant and later as the manager of several corporations.

Along with church-related activities, Dave initiated and became involved in numerous campus ministries and meetings in their home, with a special outreach to Jewish young people and foreign students. Many of these have stayed in touch with Dave and Ruth through the years, fondly recalling their times spent in Bible studies at the Hunts’ house.

Dave and Ruth also traveled abroad, spending time in various locations throughout Europe, meeting with believers there and ministering in many ways while raising their own family. Dave also brought Bibles and other materials into the Soviet Union during a time when it was very difficult to do so. Throughout his later years, he and Ruth traveled extensively as he was invited to speak in churches and fellowships, large and small, all over the world. Often they stayed in people’s homes, dining with them, learning their customs, and sharing God’s Word and God’s love.

The desire of Dave’s heart was ultimately to be involved in fulltime ministry, especially since he saw firsthand everywhere he went the breaking down of the true church as the world began to work its way into her midst. He began to write in 1973, warning believers about the incursion into Western culture and into the church itself of Eastern religion, psychological and selfist philosophies, ecumenism, and other unbiblical teachings.

The ministry of The Berean Call was founded by Dave in 1992. It grew out of a previous organization, of which Dave was also a founding member since 1986. With T.A. McMahon working alongside him at The Berean Call, Dave was able to share his love for and defense of Christ in the subsequent newsletters, books, videos, and speaking engagements that resulted from this ministry. Dave and T.A. wrote three books together, including the best-known The Seduction of Christianity , which was groundbreaking in its boldness, exposing false teachings in the church and daring to identify the names of the ones behind the deception.

By the early 2000s, Dave’s love for Christ and his desire to defend the name of the Lord had grown even stronger, and his concern over Islamic politics and religion are reflected in many of his articles, lectures, books, and interviews.

Then Richard Dawkins and the “new atheists” came onto the scene with a vengeance, seeking to destroy the very concept of God in the minds of everyone. Dave began to write and teach and speak more passionately than ever about the absolute truth that is in the Word of God and our need to immerse ourselves in it daily in order to prevent being taken up in the evolutionist delusion that is sweeping the world.

One of Dave’s favorite activities was to see whom God would seat next to him on airplanes as he traveled and spoke. He often said that he “could prove the existence of God” just by these providential occurrences. While writing about Islam, he would end up seated next to a Muslim who didn’t really understand what Islam was about but was eager to hear the difference between the Bible and the Qur’an. When writing about creation vs. evolution, the Lord would bring him, as a seat companion, an atheistic scientist who thought he had all the answers and was very surprised that there was another verifiable explanation to this universe.

Dave’s bold yet loving approach to any situation allowed him entrance into these conversations where many others would have been shut out. His love for Jesus, for Israel, and for people in general was obvious to all. His enthusiasm for the truth, along with his anger over the sin and wickedness that he knew was robbing people of what God wanted for them, flamed his desire to share the Lord with anyone with whom he had contact.

At least 4 million copies of his books have been sold, many of them translated into more than 50 languages. They include: The Cult Explosion; The God Makers (with Ed Decker); The Seduction of Christianity (with T.A. McMahon); Global Peace and the Rise of Antichrist; Peace, Prosperity, and the Coming Holocaust; The New Spirituality (with T.A. McMahon); Whatever Happened to Heaven?; Occult Invasion; A Woman Rides the Beast; A Cup of Trembling; In Defense of the Faith; An Urgent Call to a Serious Faith ; To Russia with Love (with Hans Kristian); What Love Is This?; Countdown to the Second Coming; Seeking and Finding God; Honest Doubts; Judgment Day!: Islam, Israel, and the Nations; Yoga and the Body of Christ; and his final book, Cosmos, Creator, and Human Destiny.

He also wrote two novels, The Mind Invaders (formerly The Archon Conspiracy ) and Sanctuary of the Chosen, along with a children’s book called The Money Tree , illustrated by his daughter Karen.

This is by no means a complete listing of all of Dave’s works. One of his videos, Israel, Islam & Armageddon, has become a tremendous tool for churches and for anyone interested in helping to spread the truth about events prior to and since the attack on the World Trade Center. His video A Woman Rides the Beast is a favorite among those who are witnessing to Catholics, a group for whom Dave had a deep love and sorrow, desiring to see them come to the knowledge of the truth.

Dave Hunt’s own drive to find and then deliver the truth is evident in everything he did. His impeccable research and recognized scholarship were based on in-depth studies of original documents and publications, interviews with key experts from around the world, and extensive travel—including to South America, Australia, Europe, India, and throughout the Middle East.

Dave has left us a legacy of inestimable value. We are blessed to be able to see and hear and read what he has taught about the evidence for God in a breathtaking number of materials. From explaining about the history of Christianity, to exposing the deception that has crept into the church, to teaching about the prophecies that are being fulfilled even today, this humble, brilliant man will go on teaching us for a very long time. We look forward to the day when we will see him again. source – Berean Call

  • I’m so sad to hear this. I’ve followed Dave Hunt for years! We are losing so many of our best prophecy teachers lately. He’s so lucky to be home! God bless him.

    • Amen Sparrow. A true man of God. The Body of Christ has lost a true Watchman on the Wall. But Heaven has gained a wonderful saint!!! Thank God for the ministry of Dave Hunt! He has helped so many, to see through the corruption that has entered the New Age Churches. Yes, he is blessed to be home with the Lord, but will be greatly missed here!

    • Brother in Jesus Christ, friend and mentor Dave Hunt was a mighty spiritual warrior that steadfastly served as a beacon of light and hope in bringing the truth of God’s Word to thousands of believers and unbelievers alike. We first began our annual prophecy conference in New York State in 1984, which was held at RIT and Evangel Church, Rochester, N.Y. It was then set up at Calvary Chapel in Canandaigus, N.Y. several years later, and has been held in January each year ever since. He and Ruth Hunt have been incredible faithful servants of our Lord Jesus Christ in blessing many with excellence and integrity for over four decades! Dave Hunt will be greatly missed until the glorious day we all will be reunited in God’s heavenly kingdom…


  • Where can I watch his videos?


    • The BereanCall.org or YouTube may have some. He is very good. You can subscribe to their free Newsletter. His partner in the ministry has taken it over, and he is good also. God Bless, s.

        Thank you I’m at his site now

  • I am sad to hear about the death of this great teacher of Scripture. I read a lot of his teachings in the 1990’s.

  • Rest in peace, Brother.

  • I’m so sorry to hear of Dave’s passing and will keep the family in my prayers. I’ve subscribed to Berean Call for years and enjoyed his messages,

  • Precious in the sight of God are the death of his saints! Thanks Dave for your faithful service to the body of Christ!!! See you in Heaven or in the Sky at the return of Christ Jesus!!!!

  • My heartfelt condolence to the entire family.
    I followed Dave Hunt for many years and enjoyed and learned much from the Berean Call. Truly he was a man dedicated in getting out the Gospel.

  • Hallelujia – oh the blessed sights and sounds Brother Hunt is experiencing!! Peace and satisfaction beyond comprehension. He is in the pure joy of his Lord. Is it not interesting that many prophecy teachers have passed on into glory? Kinsella, Graham and now Hunt. It’s like God is saying even louder than ever “I am coming, prepare yourselves.”

  • A giant. A gifted combination of spiritual passion and articulate and intelligent defender of The Faith once delivered to the saints. Thank you Lord for your servant and his example

  • I learned much from Dave Hunt and I will miss him. He has done a great service to the true church by revealing what a true Christian is and what a believer of a false system is. I enjoyed “Israel, Islam & Armageddon” very much as it gave a great deal of background into the struggle in the Middle East.

  • Thanks for everything Dave….you were faithful….RIP….

  • for all, didn,t know dave, may he rest in peace, sound guy, israel in shi ite, al qaeda have got syria’s chemicle weapons, israel flying minister to syria, to make freinds, supply arms to assad and few thousand isralli soldiers,

  • I heard the feebleness in Dave’s voice on the radio in the past few years from when I heard him speak in person several years ago, so I knew his days to minister were coming to an end. He continued to be a strong, no-nonsense advocate for the Word of God and a lot of us owe him a debt of gratitude for challenging us to explore the Bible. He will be missed.

  • Bendage

    Billy graham is still alive

    • Bendage – I was thinking of RON Graham, no relation to Billy Graham. Ron Graham was another fine Christian voice. I believe his writings are available online.

    • Follow Jesus.

  • My heart is heavy with the news of Dave’s passing. My prayers for his family left behind… and my joy that he is now with the Lord… as we shall be. RIP Rev. Hunt

  • His book “The Occult Invasion” was a real blessing to me. I have learned many things about occultism that is dangerous to the church. Rest in peace, Dave.

  • Dave is quite possibly in hell for blapheming Christ’s Church, i.e. calling it a whore, calling the pope the anti-christ and just general anit-catholic bigotry/propoganda. He was confronted with the truth when he died. Maybe he repented. I certainly don’t wish he is in hell but it has to be tuff to repent of such things before Chirst and know that you lead many people away from Christ’s Church through your work.

    • Gerald It wasn’t Christ’s Church that Dave called a whore, but the false church, which isn’t of God.

    • Dave was right on the spot!! It is you poor sir, that have been deceived. Repent and read the King James Bible and learn the truth.

    • Gerald – have you read Dave’s book, “A Women Rides the Beast”, most if not all the info Dave gathered for it was from Catholic sources, or watched his video of the same title? Most of my family and I and a lot of our friends left the Catholic church, and it wasn’t what anybody said, it was when we learned the Bible was God’s true word and started reading it. It took awhile, but we were seeing more and more things in the catholic church that didn’t line up with the Bible. We came to a point where we had to make a decision, either follow the Bible and its author, ( the Bible being inspired of God ) or follow the catholic catechism, a man made religion. We chose the former and this was long before Dave Hunt wrote his book on it. Dave, in his book, put it together better than anybody else.

      • Praise the Lord Mike. God Bless you for listening to the Holy Spirit, and choosing God’s truth over man’s traditions!! Bless you brother!!! s

    What a wonderful story of God’s wonderful plan and purpose in a person’s life. “They will make war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will overcome them because He is Lord of lords and King of kings and with Him will be His called, chosen and faithful followers.” Rev 17:14

  • Hi brothers & sisters,

    Please pray for me. I am anemic and not feeling very good. I am going back to the doctor again as I have had this problem in the past. I was on iron previously and will probably end up on it again. I get dizzy, weak, rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath etc. Your prayers are appreciated

    Thank you!! 🙂

    • I prayed for you Little Bird. May The Lord touch you and give you strength in Jesus Name!! I also pray for wisdom for the doctors. Amen

  • Brother Dave is a loss for us and family but a welcome gain in Heaven! Yes he was very sound in doctrine. He was a brother were a big heart!
    We are loosing many greats of our day in just the last few years. Maybe we all be Home soon!


  • were all praying for you ,little bird,

  • I’m sorry I didn’t mean to be rude. I’m sorry to hear about Dave. I didn’t mean ignore that one of our brothers had passed away. I am not familiar with him but I would like to read some of his books as I am interested in the last days.

  • I thank GOD for Dave Hunt, I have learned many things about the roman catholic system.

  • R.I.P Dave Hunt GOD has taken his chosen..

  • Tragically Hunt taught the two biggest heresies being sown in the church today, once saved always saved (1 Tim 4:1) and the lie the rapture comes before the Beast wars against the saints (2 Thes 2:1-4, Rev 13:3-7))

    • @ Paul bortolazzo The fact that you came against him, instead of having compassion for his family or his passing could say a lot about you. Maybe those who disagree with your beliefs would say the same about you… Dave Loved the Lord and spent his life trying to warn the body of Christ about many false doctrines coming into the church now-days. I may not have agreed with him 100% on everything, as I would say about any man, as now we see through a glass darkly, but he was a man of God, that loved the Lord. Grow up and have some compassion, and show some love, instead of always trying to prove your right!

  • Those denying their faith in Jesus are worse than an unbeliever because they once had the Holy Spirit, they once had the truth, but they forsook the doctrine of Christ. Like a sow going back to its mud. (2 Pet. 2:20-22, Heb 10:29; 3:12-14)

    I am deeply moved by Dave’s passing into the Lord’s presence. He certainly opened my eyes back in the 1980’s with Seduction and Peace &Prosperity. My sadness is for his family and I share their loss.

  • Is that the Same Dave Hunt who predicted Jesus was coming back in the 70’s, then 80’s, then 90’s? Another False Prophet gone. Poor guy didn’t get to see Jesus come back.

    • NO, it is not the same one. The Real Dave Hunt never set a date. I never read of, or heard him talk like that!!! He was no false prophet. And he never called himself a prophet! He was a very humble man, and a great man of God!!! Get your facts straight before you accuse someone falsely my friend!!!

  • I can’t wait to see Dave in heaven, praise the Lord!
    I have been saved over 18 years and have been following Dave the whole time. I have been on conference weekends where Dave was one of the main speakers, did you ever feel like your brain was going to short circuit after listening to Dave for about an hour, what a great feeling! I met Dave a spoke with him one on one, what a real guy and great person.
