 Jack Chick, founder of Chick Publications, passed away

Well-known publisher, author and artist Jack Chick passed away on Sunday, October 23, 2016 at the age of 92.

If you've ever seen a Gospel tract, there is a good chance that it came from Chick Publications. Jack Chick began publishing gospel tracts in 1960. Since then, he has literally published nearly 900 Million of them.

Jack Chick was a controversial figure both among believers and non-believers alike. Non-Christians often considered him to be a "bigot" or "hate-monger" particularly in regard to strongly-worded messages about homosexuality, other religions, etc. He was also controversial among Christians for embracing certain conspiracy theories.

Regardless of what people thought of Jack Chick's positions, his tracts were very well known. In fact, several newspapers and magazines published stories about him throughout his life and regarding his death. This week, I read stories about Chick's death and the impact of his life in the New York Times, the New Republic, Slate, the LA Times, Smithsonian and several other newspapers, magazines and websites.
