Hank Hanegraaff, known as the Bible Answer Man and author of “AfterLife: What You Really Want to Know About Heaven and the Hereafter,” speaks to The Christian Post at the National Religious Broadcasters convention on Sunday, March 3, 2013, in Nashville, Tenn.

The “Bible Answer Man” radio show program with Hank Hanegraaff has been booted from Bott Radio Network over concerns regarding biblical accuracy, following Hanegraaff’s conversion into the Eastern Orthodox Church.

“We want to make sure that our listeners know that the programming that we have on Bott Radio Network is thoroughly biblical,” said BRN President Richard P. Bott II, a member of Lenexa Baptist Church in Lenexa, Kansas, according to Baptist Press.

BRN had reportedly been broadcasting the “Bible Answer Man” since the 1980s, even before Hanegraaff joined the show in 1989.

“We live in strategic times,” Bott told BP.

According to an email announcement from BRN, the “Bible Answer Man” is being replaced by new late-afternoon programming featuring various evangelical pastors, such as Jack Graham of Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano, Texas, beginning Monday.

BRN says on its website that it operates over 100 broadcast signals with a combined coverage of 51 million people in 15 states, offering “family quality Christian programming 24 hours a day.” The “Bible Answer Man” page could no longer be found on the BRN website.
