John Blanchard

John Blanchard


He comes originally from Guernsey in the Channel Islands. He now lives at Banstead in Surrey.

He is the father of 5 grown up sons. His wife Joyce went to be with the Lord in February 2010.

He is the author of at least 35 different books, ranging from a pocket size 'Ultimate Questions' to his 650 page volume: 'Does God believe in Atheists?' which was published in the year 2000.

15 million copies of his books are in print in over 65 languages worldwide!

John's mother died when he was just 5, from colitis. He was evacuated from the island of Guernsey, just before the Germans invaded, spending the rest of the Second World War on Islay in the Scottish Hebrides. And his wife died from cancer just a few years ago. So in all of these ways, and more, John is well qualified to address this important subject: 'Where is God when things go wrong?'
