A native New Zealander, Ray Comfort began his ministry with a burden for his lost friends. After attending the funeral of a fifth friend who had died from a drug overdose, Ray published an eight-page pamphlet called My Friends Are Dying.” The pamphlet was later expanded to a paperback book, and Ray began sharing with youth about the ultimate answer to the drug problem--Jesus Christ. Ray has since written forty books and spoken at hundreds of churches. His best-selling Whitaker House title, Hell’s Best Kept Secret, is one of the most insightful books published on the subject of evangelism. Ray has recently teamed up with Kirk Cameron to co-author The World’s Greatest Preachers, which focuses on the best evangelical gospel messages ever delivered in history and on the men who preached the Good News of salvation through Jesus Christ. Ray’s ministry has included pastoring a church, hosting a Christian radio program, writing a newspaper column called Words of Comfort,” and serving as a regular platform speaker at Southern Baptist state conferences. Ray and his wife, Sue, live in southern California and have three grown children.Comfort, Ray is the author of 'Hell's Best Kept Secret With Study Guide', published 2004 under ISBN 9780883684351 and ISBN 0883684357.
