Received word of this from Kevin Johnson of Mount Carmel Outreach and the Institute for Christian Apologetics:
(From Cornerstone Magazine's website):
"Answers in Action's Bob Passantino died Monday, November 17, of a massive heart attack. Well-known as a writer and speaker, Bob's greatest contributions may have come from the vital ministry he and his wife, Gretchen, have run from their modest dwelling in Orange County."
Passantino and his wife authored several books on things like witchcraft, Satanism and the occult. I honestly can't remember if I ever read any of his books, but I remember hearing a lot about his ministry. Click here to read more about Passantino.
