Julian Chryssavgis was born in Sydney, Australia, and at the age of six moved with his family to Boston, where he attended Brookline High and Boston Latin. At Bowdoin College (Maine), he revived and served as president of the second oldest debating society in America, defunct for decades, whose members included President Franklin Pierce, Henry W. Longfellow, and Nathaniel Hawthorne. He interned at the offices of Senator Ted Kennedy and Senator Olympia Snowe, the office of the Attorney General in Australia, and Baker and McKenzie Law firm in Sydney. He is presently completing a Masters at St. Andrew’s University in Scotland.
Hank Hanegraaff serves as president of the Christian Research Institute (CRI), host of the Bible Answer Man broadcast, and the Hank Unplugged podcast. Hank is a member of the Orthodox Christian Board of Directors. He is the author of over twenty books. Widely regarded as one of the world’s leading Christian authors and theologians, Hanegraaff has dedicated his life to a defense of the historic Christian faith. For the greater part of his life and ministry, Hank’s clarion call was to communicate Christian truth — because truth matters! The discovery that truth matters but life matters more has cultivated in him a deep commitment to communicating why life matters more and how the life that matters more can be experienced today—now—in intimate union with the Triadic One. Hank and his wife, Kathy, live in Charlotte, North Carolina, and are parents to twelve children.
