Christian author and speaker Doug Batchelor has experienced great extremes. His journey from anti-social, drug-using hermit to soul-winning evangelist has helped shape him into an engaging, popular speaker whom audiences all over the world can identify with and understand clearly even on the most complex Bible topics.

But as the teenage son of aviation tycoon and philanthropist George Batchelor and show business mother Ruth Batchelor, even though young Doug Batchelor had everything money could buy – he couldn’t find true peace and happiness. A troubled youth, he fought at school, entertained suicidal fantasies, and eventually ran away from home by the time he was just 15 years old.

Disgusted with his life and convinced it had no real meaning, Doug was determined to experience the humanistic lifestyle with reckless abandon. He turned to drugs, committed crimes, and spent time in jail, while also living on high adventure from stormy seas to blistering deserts. But years later, a remote cave high in the mountains above Palm Springs became his home. And even though his father owned a yacht, a jet, and a Rolls-Royce, Doug found himself scavenging for food in garbage bins.

The happiness Doug searched for continued to elude him for years – until the day he found a dust-covered Bible someone left in his cave. What happened next can only be described as a miracle! As he read, he believed in and accepted Christ as his Savior! You can read about his remarkable conversion story in the best-selling book The Richest Caveman. (Watch his testimony by clicking here.)

Today, Pastor Doug Batchelor is an energetic speaker of vision and deep spirituality, with an unusual ability to communicate not only to church-oriented people, but also the secular-minded. His spontaneous, lively humor and down-to-earth approach to living the Christian life engages and reaches hearts in a way that few others are able.

As president of Amazing Facts, he can be seen on national cable networks and heard on more than 125 radio stations across the United States. He is also becoming increasingly popular around the world by those who see him on international satellite and cable stations. (Find stations in your area.)

Doug and his wife Karen have five children. Currently living in Sacramento, his hobbies include guitar, scuba diving, and racquetball. Like his father, he is also an aviation enthusiast and pilot. His other books include Caveman Theology, Broken Chains, At Jesus’ Feet: The Gospel According to Mary Magdalene, and Who Do You Think You Are?
