WND Jack Chick, a controversial California-based evangelist who used comic books to spread the gospel, died Sunday at the age of 92, according to a note on his Facebook page.
“Brothers and Sisters in Christ: Brother Jack Chick passed away Sunday evening, October 23, peacefully in his sleep. He was 92,” the note said.
Chick is best known for his empire of comic-book-style Christian tracts, which often featured in-your-face confrontations against beliefs and philosophies that did not agree with evangelical Protestantism, especially Catholicism and Judaism, leading some to consider him a religious bigot.
His company says it has sold more than 750 million tracts, with the content translated into more than 100 languages. Chick’s material has covered a wide variety of subjects, strongly attacking abortion, homosexuality, the occult, rock music, left-wing politics, J.K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter” series, and the theory of evolution.
